Holiday Gift Ideas: Our Favorites

Holiday Gift Ideas: Our Favorites

Looking for a holiday gift for your favorite gourmet? We’ve got a few ideas to make that gift a little bit extra special.

Tondo Vinegars

These are the most popular items in our gourmet boutique, which for us (and our frequent customers) is no surprise.

Tondo vinegars, whether the gift box (with stopper) of traditional balsamico, or the set of flavored vinegars (shown in the photo above, including fig, lemon, citrus and pomegranate) are elegant, tasteful gifts for the holidays. In fact, the bottles of traditional balsamico have become so popular around here, we sell them by the case.

Note: We are no longer selling items in our boutique, but you can find all of Tondo’s sizes and flavors here on the Baldor Foods web site.

The Gilded Fork Cookbook

We’re still in love with our cookbook, because we went the extra mile to ensure that there are 13 complete dinner party menus with beverage pairings, as well as extensive chef’s notes to provide the little tips that make throwing a party that much easier.

We’re offering 2 cookbooks for $35 this season, which includes shipping. Our regular retail price is $25 for one, so this is a great deal. This way you can give one as a gift, and keep one for yourself. Each book bought through our boutique is personally signed by Jennifer and Chef Mark, and can be personalized for your recipient (and you!).

Gourmet Coffees

Brian Franklin of The Double Shot Coffee Company takes roasting beans to a whole new level. What we love is that beans are roasted every week, and shipped immediately. This ensures the freshest taste, and turns mornings into a caffeinated love-making session. We’re not kidding.

We have several combinations to suit the tastes of even the most discerning coffee lovers, including a little rivalry between Brian and our own Jennifer.

Note: We are no longer offering items in our boutique, but you can order DoubleShot Coffee directly from their web site.
