Gifts for Your Favorite Foodie

Print Friendly

Foodies all over the country are taking their love of cooking one step further lately. It seems as though an interest in cooking and baking at home has changed into a whole new career choice.

But what do you get a chef in training as a gift? Are there certain tools or brands to look out for? What items will they need that most people don’t already have at home? We’ve put together a quick guide on items to buy for that future celebrity chef. Still have questions? Email us!

Chef’s Knives

Most home chefs don’t know the different between paring knives and deboning knives or fish knives and steak knives. Don’t worry – you’re not alone. Your foodie friends will likely know the difference though between types of knives and what brands hold up best. Some of the best brands of knives for future (or current) chefs are Mundial, Forschner and Jaccard. All three brands are extremely durable and easy to find. To save the hassle of searching for certain types of knives, try purchasing a knife set. Not only do the cases it make it easier to transport the knives from one location to another, but the set include all of the essential pieces that any foodie would love to own.

Measurers

Measuring spoons and cups are an absolute must when it comes to being a pro in the kitchen. Buy your favorite up and coming chef a nice set of each.

Nice Pans

Professional chefs use only the best pans when they cook because they know that timing and quality are their two top priorities in foodservice. You can’t chance poorly cooked food or extremely long cook times when a happy customer means more money coming into your venue in the long run. Alegacy makes some of the best sauté pans for restaurant use. They are durable and easy to clean. Lincoln and Alegacy both make outstanding non-stick pans as well. Just make sure to check out our guide on how to care for non-stick pans in our blog.

Chef Coats & Textiles

One of the most popular gifts that our customers love to get their favorite chefs is the monogrammed chef coats. Choose your color and style, and depending on the quantity we can give you a quote on how much it will cost to put a name on it. We also have a wide variety of aprons, chef hats and other textiles.
