2012 Gift Guide for Food Lovers

Dulcie and I both love to daydream about the kitchen accessories, tools, and awesome cookbooks we want to acquire next. Now is the time of year to get those wish lists in order, so join us!  Here’s what we’re into these days.

First of all, there are some really exciting cookbooks that were published in 2012. 

I’ve been a long time fan of Deb over at Smitten Kitchen, so of course I’m excited about her new cookbook, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook.

Kinfolk’s images are inspiring, helping you to envision a simplified way of approaching food, friends, and entertaining. Kinfolk Volume Six

Kate is known for her artfully messy food scenery and dramatic lighting. And her recipes are always delicious. What Katie Ate: Recipes and Other Bits and Pieces.

 
 
Next, let’s move on to some functional and beautiful kitchen tools and accessories. 
 

These Bamboo Kitchen Utencils by West Elm have stylish colorful handles, and at 6 bucks a pop, they are a great budget option.

Measuring Hedgehogs – the world’s most adorable way to measure.

Monogrammed Stainless Steel Shaker by Williams Sonoma.

    1. I need to get my hands on Kinfolk! I see so many images on Tumblr, but I have never actually held a physical copy.
