There are many occasions for giving gifts. Sometimes these gifts are more like a hostess gift, a token of appreciation for a dinner at friends, or a thank you for allowing you to stay for an overnight visit. The usual gift that comes to mind for these occasions is a special bottle of wine or a box of chocolates. But why not make it more personal, more unique! How about a gift of food, something that you have prepared and carefully packaged for this special occasion.
There are many kinds of food gifts you can prepare: quick breads and muffins, cakes and cookies, jams and jellies, herb mixes and vinaigrettes. The list of possibilities is endless and with Lilly Robbins-Brock’s unique cookbook, Food Gift Recipes From Nature’s Bounty: Easy and Delicious Recipes to Make and Share for Every Occasion, you will never lack for creative gift giving ideas. And you don’t have to use these recipes just to create the perfect gift! Serve them at home for family and friends.
“For hundreds of years,” author Lilly Robbins-Brock writes in her Foreword to Food Gift Recipes From Nature's Bounty, “food has been a symbol of friendship and hospitality.” This statement, profound and true, begins a treasury of family recipes, well cataloged, with clear instructions and colorful illustrations. The author’s intention was to provide cooks and gift-givers with not only ideas, but also useful ways to plan ahead and to have food gifts available, either canned in decorative jars or tucked away in the freezer. She includes useful tips on how to protect this bounty from freezer burn and other kinds of spoiling. This is a very insightful and useful cookbook and a treasure for any kitchen. Thanks for sharing your family recipes!
