gift-guide_foodie_3

We all have that one special foodie friend who is the answer to all of our culinary inquiries. They somehow know the latest restaurant opening with the rave reviews, they can figure out how to take any boring ole’ recipe from bland to amazing, and they encourage you to order menu items you normally would pass over. You want to thank them for how much they’ve helped you expand your tastebuds and food perspective, but what do you get the foodie who knows it all? 

These awesome gifts, guaranteed to light up more than their holiday, but their whole year of savory adventures:

Superfoods

Custom Foil Recipe Print
