Gift Guide 2020 Kitchen + Home

A montage of gifts.

The theme of this year’s gift guide is Home: where we all, once again, likely will be spending lots of time. Here are a few ideas for making your home a little brighter, a little greener, a little cozier, and a little more delicious.

As always, my perennial favorites can be found in The Shop, and I’ll be updating this post if I discover any more gems.

Virtual Cooking Class

Some of you have may taken one of my virtual cooking classes, which I have been holding twice a month since June of this year. Thank you! For me, they’ve been the highlight of the quarantine, a chance to peek into so many of your kitchens and to connect on a level the format of a blog doesn’t allow.

We’ve made stone-fruit galettes, homemade tortillas, enchiladas, focaccia, and stuffed bell peppers, to name a few. And we’ve raised over $13K for various charities in the process. I’ve just added 12 new class dates.

**Also** You can now subscribe to The Cooking & Baking Club, which includes 2 live classes a month, all of which will be recorded, so you can take the classes on your own time. Every month we’ll bake something — from brioche to pizza to sourdough bread — and every month we’ll cook something, too — from butternut squash lasagna to spatchcock roast chicken to a whole Valentine’s Day dinner. For a limited time only, the subscription rate is $29/month.

Here are a few ways to gift a class:

  • Gift a Class: Click on any of the classes in the schedule; then click on the “Gift this class” link.
  • Gift a Class + a copy of my cookbook: Under the “Ways to Save” tab, click on “Packages.”
  • Gift a Subscription: Under the “Ways to Save” tab, click on “Memberships.”

A Cookbook

You know I love my cookbooks. Here are a few new-ish releases as well as one old one:

Laurie Colwin’s Home Cooking. I am late to discover Laurie Colwin, but oh my goodness is her writing a gift, and is this book a treasure. Note: This is not a cookbook, though there are recipes peppered throughout.

Laurie Colwin's Home Cooking.

For the baker in your life, any of these five cookbooks would be wonderful. (More on each of these in an upcoming post… stay tuned.)
