Gifts for the foodie

31. Cast iron pizza pan

cast-iron pizza pan

This cast iron pizza pan isn’t sexy, but it’s the only pizza stone your gastro junkie will ever need. While the instructions say it can only take up to 400 degrees F, that’s just to protect the seasoning. But for a foodie, seasoning a cast iron is Zen. (Amazon, $39)

32. Endless edge brownie pan

Whether your grill-master pal lives in an apartment or just needs a small grill in the kitchen, this grill attaches to the handrail of a balcony/patio or mounts to the wall so she can always have fresh-from-the-grill flavor. (Connox, $74) 

35. Adjustable measuring cup

adjustable measuring cup

This is a great gift for a foodie who prefers a more practical present. It may not seem glamorous, but it’s one of my favorite go-to measuring cups because of the variety of measurement marks (pints, cups, ounces and millimeters). (Amazon, $11)

36. Cake-pop maker

Rumor has it Beyoncé has these little babies on her concert rider. And I know why. Titanium straws aren’t just eco-friendly. Your drinks actually feel colder as you drink them. (Amazon, $20 for a pack of four)

38. SodaStream Source Starter Kit


With fresh sparkling water at her finger tips, your foodie can use the SodaStream to experiment with different flavors and develop her own signature soda. (SodaStream, $99)

39. Himalayan rectangle salt platter

Harvested as large boulders from an ancient Himalayan mountain range, these salt platters are considered by many to be the purest salt in the world. Heated, Himalayan salt platters are perfect for searing quick cooking meat and vegetables. Chilled, they also make a great way to serve sushi, cheese, fruit and desserts. (SaltWorks, $59)

40. Premium Modernist Cooking Made Easy kit
