Your 2012 #CLEFood Gifting Guide
Last year, we encouraged you to skip the trip to Williams Sonoma with a list of great gift ideas that support our regional culinary artisans. Of course, Spice Kitchen + Bar and Plated Landscape gift certificates are the perfect gift for everybody on your list (and now conveniently available on our website!)…but for those of you seeking some additional options, we asked our staff:
Q: Which local food gifts would you want to unwrap this year?
A: Liz, Office Boss
I would love a gift basket from Market at the Fig. A bottle of wine, meat and cheese. Not too fancy, but that’s what I would like!
A: Jess, Executive Event Planner
A gift certificate to Nature’s Bin would cheer me right up!! Oh, and some of our hot sauce or house-made Kombucha! Does that just sound like i’m trying to sell “us?”
A: Andy, Director of Operations
After giving it thought, although it’s not really food, I would want beer from a local brewery, such as Fat Head’s, Indigo IMP, or even Brew Kettle. It would be great to give or receive in 6 packs or going to the breweries and getting growlers. Maybe if someone is feeling up to it, brewing beer at some breweries that are set up to and giving that out as Christmas gifts!
A: Ben, Owner/Chef
Maple syrup or big containers of local honey. Stores forever at room temp. Great for the body and will be more expensive next year so stock up.
A: Jackie, Director of Marketing
I hope Santa knows that I’ve been very good this year and I’m almost out of SOHO hot sauce, which was also very good this year.
Editor’s note: If you are interested in Spice gift certificates, be sure to order online by December 19th for December 25th delivery. You last-minute procrastinators can stop in anytime to pick them up at the bar!
From Spice staff to you and yours – all the best for a happy, healthy holiday season!
