The 22 Best Food and Drink Gifts for Home Chefs and Their Home Bars

A gift guide for the home chef is really just a gift guide for everyone. Even the people in your life with the biggest takeout bills need a good coffee maker, and those whose home bars rival your local watering hole could probably use some extra help with their spice drawer. As long as they take pleasure in a good meal and a well-crafted drink, you'll find something here. Yes, there's cookware, of the beautiful and use full variety, as well as some of our favorite new appliances, some of which you'll be tempted to wrap up for yourself (we certainly won't tell). there are also ideas for every gift-giving scenario you've got on your list,. Impressive present for under the tree? Done. The perfect package to send to a colleague (that's not too expensive)? We found it. And those impossible Secret Santa exchanges? It's all in here. Our kitchen and dining tables have continued to be places of refuge during this year, one that maybe wasn't as much of a reprieve as many expected. From a better can of olive oil to a special whiskey to our favorite cast iron skillet, these gifts will help reinforce the culinary sanctuary.
The Morning Dram Starter Kit
Coffee beans for the spirits drinker, via the owner of NYC stables Fine & Rare and The Flatiron Room. These aren't alcoholic, but the beans here (from Colombia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, ad Mexico_ are barrel-aged and certainly pick up some unique notes. The Starter Kit will get one bag of bourbon barrel-aged beans, one rye-aged bag, a house blend (not barrel-aged), a stainless steel dripper, enamel camp mug, and a portable hand grinder. Or you can just buy the beans separately.
