Last night, I finally finished all my Christmas shopping (I think; I hope). I also hope you have been equally as lucky in your shopping endeavors, as we’re officially down to the last few days before the Big Day. If you still haven’t quite crossed off all those names, we have one more list of suggestions for you, this time for your foodie friends and family.
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays by Ree Drummond: an assortment of meal ideas for holidays throughout the year—from a Resolution Smoothie on New Year’s Day to Dessert Shots on New Year’s Eve—accompanied by dozens of Ree’s signature step-by-step photos.
L.A. Son by Roy Choi: the maverick chef and co-founder of the Kogi BBQ trucks compiles his favorite recipes that reflect the creative, inventive, and border-crossing spirit of his hometown. Roy is a personal friend of TV chef personality Anthony Bourdain, who also happens to love the next lady on the list, renowned food critic Marilyn Hagerty.
Grand Forks by Marilyn Hagerty: rather than making a cookbook, this 86-year-old, down-to-earth, food critic brought together a collection of her best, no-nonsense restaurant reviews—from Red Lobster to Le Bernadin— from across her fifty-year career.
All right everyone, this is it. The final countdown. Good luck, and Happy Holidays!
