Tracking down great food gifts


I love my food, I love everything about food: eating it, preparing it, shopping for it, reading about it…just about everything except having to work it off, which is the price you pay I guess!

I wish every foodie gift was a glorious gourmet treat, but often this isn’t the case. Somewhere there are huge bottles of oils and vinegars, strange liquers and random tinned stuff. So I wanted to find the stuff that any self respecting gourmet would really want to give cupboard space to.

This is the start of my journey to track down the good stuff, and perhaps laugh at some of the really bad stuff! If you’re the gourmet, then I hope to help you write a great wish list. And if you have a foodie to shop for, I hope to help you out!
