SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Everyone has a food fan or two to buy gifts for this holiday season, but if you’re not a foodie, than these folks can be some of the hardest people to shop for. So…we compiled a list of a few foodie favorites, some for the serious cook and some just for fun.
First up, for the foodies in your life who don’t have the time to shop, consider these two great gift delivery services.
On the fun side…The Man Crate comes complete with its own crow bar. The recipient gets to pry open real wooden crates full of stuff like bacon flavored popcorn, survivalist food or various other ‘manly’ options. The crates retail for $69.99 and up.
For the serious foodie and Farmer’s Market fanatic…FarmBoxSF delivers everything you’ve always wanted from the Farmer’s Market but were too tired to get up and get yourself on those foggy Sunday mornings. Kale, artisan cheese, free range eggs…it’s all here…and
they deliver to Southern California too…and offer gift certificates. Costs vary but KPIX5 viewers can %15 off their first order through January 1, 2015.
And for the foodie in your life who actually goes to the farmer’s market the Cornucopia Bag is the hot item of the season.
For $78 dollar the waterproof and reinforced compartments will keep your squash from squashing your eggs.
Curry Kitchen Master
Curry…it’s not just for take- out anymore. This kit has all the spices the home cook on your gift list needs to make Indian food, including a cookbook and hard
to find spices. It retails for $79.99 but KPIX5 viewers the kit can be had for $59.99.
And for a foodie splurge, the Sousvide, French for ‘under vacuum’, has been a secret of steakhouse chefs for years. Just vacuum seal your meat, fish or veggies, set the Sousvide, submerge the food and walk away.
Temperature controlled steam cooks everything to perfection so even people who can’t cook can feel like a Top Chef!
The entire kit, complete with vacuum sealer retails, starts at around $429.
