Here, we go, it's Christmas gift guide time again! Too early for you? Just bookmark it and come back later. And don't miss our weekly Christmas planning guide, here's part one. Right, on with the gift guide. Some people's interests and passions make them incredibly easy to buy for, and cooks definitely fall into that category. They'll be delighted by a new pan, a wonderful cook book, or some fun but ultimately useful gadget (not sure anyone needs a spiralizer though...) Here are some of our favourite ideas for cooks:
River Cottage kindly sent us their branded apron and tea towel for review, both made from high quality 100% cotton, In fact, the Fish tea towel is made from organic and fairtrade cotton too, sized 70cm x 50cm with hanging hook, and priced £12. How happy is the bloke with his new goodies?!
The apron is an excellent size and being such a dark colour doesn't show up spills and marks easily. Makes everyone feel like a professional! The stripy apron retails at £25. A wide range of courses are available at River Cottage and gift vouchers can be bought on the website so that the recipient can choose the course of their choice. A perfect gift for any cook!
The new George Foreman Evolve Grill will transform your cooking as, with the addition of the various different plates available, you can grill, bake, and cook a wide range of dishes in the one gadget. With the ability to make everything from breakfast (waffles) through lunch (paninis or omelettes) to dinner (grilled fish, meat or vegetables, even pizza). You can even make muffins, and indeed your Christmas cake in it! Look out for our full review and recipes using the Evolve coming soon. Widely available, the Evolve has two ridged grill plates and comes with a deep pan for making pizzas, cakes etc, RRP £149.99. Extra plates are available separately.
