This year there are some pretty tasty items for those on your shopping list. Here’s some suggestions for food lovers.
I love the big Le Creuset Casserole dishes, but they are far too large to stuff into a stocking. Enter the new mini Le Creuset casserole dishes, perfect for mini mac and cheese, individual souffles and side veggie dishes served up in style. Available in Vancouver at Cookworks.
If you are a baker and want to give the gift of homemade loaves or trays of brownies, why not give them wrapped up in the new President’s Choice loaf and square pans? They come with big red bows to wrap up the treats and you can even cheat and bake using the President’s Choice brand home baking kits.
Need that something special for the real gourmet in your life, go with the Blis Tahitian Vanilla Infused Maple Syrup, available at The Dirty Apron Cooking School and Delicatessen
