Foodie gift guide
Our edit of the most enticing foodie gifts for culinary experimentation, inspiration and indulgence
Many chefs swear by Mauviel copper pans as they conduct heat so beautifully and are a joy to behold, if a devil to clean. Their elevated prices make them way beyond the ordinary and not the kind of kit most would buy for themselves. Truly a gift for life for the serious home cook. The curved splayed saute pan in Mauviel's M Heritage range starts at £170 for the 16cm.
Borough Kitchen is very much the couture of kitchenware shops specialising in the best of the best. Stunning turquoise Staub cast iron casseroles, wine glasses designed by Queen of wine critics Jancis Robinson (including an ingenious no stem version that is more break proof and equally elegant), raclette makers and strikingly beautiful, tactile oak chopping boards are all wonderful gifts for those committed foodies..
