Holiday Gifts


'Tis the season for lists. You've seen them. Lists of the "best cookbooks" of the year and lists of the "best gifts" for the culinarily inclined.

For your shopping pleasure, The Food Section has pored over the pages of food magazines, newspaper food sections, food blogs, and websites to bring you the list to end all lists -- the second annual edition of The Food Section Guide to Holiday Gift Guides, a collection of links to recently published articles on gastro-gifts for the holidays (including a handful of TFS highlights).

I should have come here before posting tonight! I'm doing a countdown for Christmas, a gift a day, and was struggling to think of a gift I liked for today :)
Awesome compilation and hope to find something for Mom-why are Mom's so hard to shop for?!


Josh, I hope you have a wonderful christmas with family and friends. Looking forward to reading more of your gorgeous posts next year.


Great picks! It will give me something to puchase with the money I get from gift returns. :-)


Some great pressie ideas there, my wifes birthday in a couple of weeks will have to remember a few of those.


In the Vancouver Sun dated December 14, 2005 there was a recipe for Apricots Squares. I lost the newspaper and I was hoping I could get the recipe from you. Thank you.


Awesome cookbooks. Thanks for the suggestions.


Nice hosting! It’s my first time to read like this article.


This is a wonderful site! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now! Thank you!


A tried and true holiday business gift idea is giving corporate gift baskets. Perfect for an office or department holiday gift baskets are a holiday favorite. It's great to give a business gift that can be shared.


Many years ago the Vancouver sun food pages printed a recipe for
roasted fall vegetables with mustard sauce. Would anyone have this recipe? I misplaced mine and would love to make this again.
Thank you.
