Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Cook or Foodie

Hanukkah started last night, Christmas Eve is three days away, and you're frantically searching for the best gift for the cook or foodie in your life. Well look no further, DishingGourmet is here to help.  Here's a list of gadgets, tools and treats that are available at your nearest mall or shopping center and guaranteed to please. Some might even still be available online with expedited shipping. Instead of sorting by price (boring!) I've created three categories:

1.  Gifts for the Cook

2.  Gifts for the Wine/Beer Drinker

3.  Gifts for Entertaining

For the Cook:

3.  KitchenAid slicer attachment
3.  Food mill
12. Apron
14. Tongs
15. Whisks
16. Pizza Stone - Emile Henry is the best. Comes in square or round shapes and is available at Williams Sonoma, Macy's and Sears.

For the Wine/Beer Drinker:
1.  New wine glasses of course - wide variety of sizes and shapes.  For a personalized look have the wine glasses engraved.
2.  Beer glasses - there are tons.  My favorites are the tulip and the snifter available anywhere but Crate & Barrel is a good bet.  Some sites offer an entire kit of tasting glasses like this one
3.  Coasters - Williams Sonoma and Bed, Bath & Beyond both have a nice selection in a variety of price ranges.
4.  Beer or wine of the month club membership.  You pay for however many months you want.
5.  Six pack of good craft beers
6.  Create your own basket of a couple of bottles of wine, corkscrew, cheese and crackers
7.  Wine rack
8.  Wine cellar - like this oneWine Enthusiast sometimes has great deals on cellars.

For Entertaining:
1.  Slate cheeseboard – also available at Williams Sonoma
Now get out there and finish that shopping!
