Gifts For The Cook

Feb 26, 2008
I really don't like to cook but I appreciate good food. You can often find me watching someone like Rachel Ray on my television as I'm keen to see how to cook even if I don't practice the art much. And watching shows like that give me great ideas on what I may want to order at a restaurant. I do have a few friends who like to cook and I know that when I need to get them a gift, a kitchen accessory is always a good choice.

Of course there are the universal gifts of cookware and cake pans. These are good choices for someone starting their own home, but even the experienced cook will welcome a new pot or pan. Cookware can be quite expensive, but bake-ware can be more affordable. Silicone bake-ware is the latest "thing" in baking. It's colorful, durable and easy to use.

Every cook appreciates a new cookbook as a gift. Find one that matches their interest. If they love to bake, find one on deserts. If they love Italian or Chinese food, find a cookbook that is dedicated to foods of the respective regions. All cooks prefer cookbooks with pictures of the finished dishes. The best cookbooks have very high quality photographs that are very artistic to look at.

Certain kitchen accessories are always needed. New pot holders or aprons are needed as old ones wear out. Getting items such as these are particularly useful for new homes or remodeled kitchens.

For the persnickety cook who must have the finest ingredients, a gift basket of some very high quality extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and some hard to find spices is a fantastic gift that is very affordable and will be loved by the serious cook.

A great mother's day gift is to have your kids cook something for you. One way to make sure that doesn't turn out to be a disaster is to give your kids cookware that accommodates their needs. This can include kid sized aprons, spatulas and plastic mixing bowls.

Gifts for the cook make great presents for any occasion. Be sure to think about the cook and his or her new kitchen when they purchase a new home. The right kitchen accessory can make a fantastic housewarming gift.
