The best thing about giving gifts of food is that, if you make twice as much, you get to keep some for yourself. Gifts Cooks Love is chock full of presents you'll want to give to yourself. What makes this Sur La Table title stand out is that the recipes have a fresh appeal, a twist on the tried and true. A new favorite of mine: almond chocolate bark with smoked salt and dried apricot (I think I'll add a little candied ginger).

Some of the techniques include preserving fruits, dehydrating fresh mushrooms, smoking and curing meat and fish, and creating spirited beverages. For the beginning cook, there are even simple-to-make no-cook food gifts. And because tasteful treats deserve equally tasteful presentations, each delicious recipe comes with a beautiful packaging idea. Gifts Cooks Love will show you how to turn your handmade gifts into homemade hugs with a few slices of art paper, colorful twists of ribbon, or quick strokes of a brush.

Synopsis:

Gift giving is a tangible expression of caring and love. In the tradition of giving food gifts it is a delightful personal present from the warmth of one's own kitchen--a sincere gift of time. Foodies and food lovers love nothing more than receiving a homemade gift, and passionate cooks take pleasure and satisfaction in spending time in the kitchen cooking and then sharing their delicious results. For passionate preservers, summer's sweet fruits and savory flavors are canned and shared later in the season. For bakers and candy makers, new twists on traditional treats bring holiday cheer. And for novice cooks, easy-to-make and cleverly packaged food and drink gifts make you look like an expert even if you aren't. Imagine bottling your own limencello when the only real skill needed is patience and time. Food Gifts Cooks Love offers one big hug of comfort food and joy.This is the book for people who love to cook and eat. It contains 40 unique recipes (including photographs for each) and instructions for making each food gift, creative ways to package it, and in some cases an additional recipe to make with the gift. It contains delicious sweet and savory gifts that any cook will love to give or receive.

chocolateandcroissants, September 20, 2010 (view all comments by chocolateandcroissants)
With all sorts of recipes and gift ideas you better believe these are Gifts Cooks Love. The recipes range from the savory, Rustic Rosemary Parmesan Crackers, and onion marmalade, to making your own olive oil and herb-cured albacore tuna for tuna salad-I can hardly wait to try this one out. Let's not forget the sweet gifts, jams and preserves, candied apples, biscotti, Mexican hot chocolate and double fudge brownie pops.

Scrumptious is the word that comes to mind. I have yet to make anything from the book. There will be plenty of recipes that I will try out. In perusing the book, the recipes all seem quite easy with readily available ingredients and instructions that have wonderful cooking tips. My only criticism is I found one recipe that called for corn syrup. I am the enemy of corn syrup. It is the cheapest cooking ingredient around with evil lurking about-just think fat. Unhealthy and unnatural.

That said, I am rather enticed by the thought of making dried porcini mushrooms and panforte.

What I believe that sets this book apart from other gift giving recipe books is the the presentation of the final product and ideas for gift baskets. You could give someone a smores basket, making your own chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows, or how about an Italian basket, with pasta, sauce and mushrooms.
