Holiday Gifting For The At-Home Chef (Win!)

November 23, 2020

When it comes to holiday, we pride ourselves on giving gifts that are practical, that will be well used and well loved. For our favourite foodies, that means putting thoughtful-yet-elevated cooking staples under the tree. Below, kitchen-worthy items no gourmet will be able to resist. —Vicki Duong

kilne knives. The tools used for food prep are as important as the ingredients. Enter Kilne, a new Canadian knifeware brand that’s a cut above the rest. Created by Endy founder Mike Gettis, Kilne’s six-piece knife set ($190) features a half-dozen essentials housed in a fashionable Acadia-wood block anyone would be proud to feature on their countertop.

our place always pan. AKA the pan that’s IG famous, the Our Place Always Pan ($145) is a foodie’s dream come true. Not only does it come in a variety of colours, it’s designed to replace eight other cookware items. Plus, this pan is known for being non-stick—so much so that you can cook eggs without oil!

fable dinnerware set. Whether making dinner for 20 or two, presentation takes a meal from drab to fab. Plating on Fable ceramic dinnerware ($215 for a set) adds a special touch to any dish (and is eye-catching enough for social posts). Hand finished in Portugal, Fable is committed to sustainably sourced and ethically produced goods.

sodastream fizzi. Sparkling or still? Put the question to rest with the SodaStream Fizzi ($119), which doesn’t require electricity or batteries and come in colour combos to suit any décor. Our personal fave is the Rose Gold for a metallic touch!

le creuset s&p shakers. Le Creuset Salt and Pepper mills ($40) are as much centrepiece as they are seasoning dispensers. With a 10-year warranty and ceramic grinder, this duo is designed to be loved for years to come. Plus, there’s a new colourway out in time for Christmas: Artichaut is a stunning emerald green that’s at the top of our want list this holiday season.

Win! A Six-Piece Kilne Knife Set!

We have a winner! Congratulations Kelsey D. of Vancouver, B.C., who will receive a $190 six-piece knife set from Kilne!
