13 Gifts for Home Cooks and Food Lovers

2011 Green Gift Guide

The holidays are just around the corner and that means its time to start thinking about finding the right gift for everyone on your list. If you have a gourmand on your list or are just looking for something more original than a bottle of red to bring your host for Thanksgiving, we have you covered!

Lately the kitchen has been inundated with tools made of plastic, rubber, and silicone. Here, we go back to basics with items made of all natural materials: a stainless steel ice cube tray, drinking straws made of glass, and an earthenware colander are just some of the items on our wish list.
