white-truffle-oil-culinary-giftThe rich, decadent flavor of the golden oil on my tongue takes me to heaven every time.

A drizzle of truffle oil takes a dish from good to gourmet!

It recently gave my homemade pizza that “Wow!” factor. After it came out of the oven, I drizzled the top with white truffle oil and strawberry fig balsamic reduction.

You should have seen my husband’s face after his first bite. His eyes actually got bigger! The dish really impressed him.

Ceramic Woven Bread Basket | Keeps Bread Warm

Have you ever heard of a ceramic woven bread basket that keeps bread warm? My sister-in-law received one for Christmas and now, I want one!

ceramic-woven-bread-bowl-warmer-thoughtful-gift-ideaWhat I’ve always done to keep my bread warm is to wrap them up in a tea towel (just like my grandmother, mother and mother-in-law used to do) and place them in a wicker basket. Of course, they never stayed warm very long.

For a task repeated often, the right tool means everything. It can save time. It can give you a better end result. In the kitchen, the most important tool is the knife. Think of the many hours people spend cutting, chopping and slicing.

A Wusthof Classic Nakiri Vegetable Knife is a must have in any kitchen.

A lot of people cook with poor quality knives that are often dull – making them unsafe and hard to use. (Yes, I’m talking to you – my sister Julia – who’s knife I couldn’t cut an onion with!) I told her the next time I visited I would be bringing my own knife, and I was being completely serious.

A high quality sharp kitchen knife provides greater efficiency and precision so that cooking a meal becomes a much easier, quicker and more enjoyable task. I would know.
