6 Gourmet Gift Ideas

Every year, the holiday season is the perfect time to show appreciation for the people in our lives. Here are six ideas for gourmet handcrafted gifts that are sure to please everyone on your list.

1. Chicken Pâté

For a unique host or hostess gift, why not offer a chicken pâté? Chop the meat up finely in a food processor until you obtain a smooth texture, then enliven it with thyme, sherry vinegar and capers. It’s delicious with our olive oil crackers.

2. Olive Oil Crackers

Made with olive oil and the toppings of your choice—fleur de sel, sesame or fennel seeds, for instance—these crackers are as pleasant to make as they are to receive. After rolling out the dough thinly on your work surface, simply cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Add the toppings and bake.

3. Pistachio and White Chocolate Spread

This sweet, three-ingredient spread is a sophisticated twist on the heavenly union of nuts and chocolate. Mellow pistachios meld with white chocolate to make a spread that’ll teach taste buds the new meaning of yum. Enjoy it smeared on a slice of country bread, atop a piece of cake or straight from the jar.

4. Chocolate-Covered Apricots

Halfway between a chocolate-covered berry and a Turtle®, these delectable bites mix the tender toothsome appeal of dried apricots with the crunch of a whole almond. Dip them in melted high-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher) for the best results.

5. Dog Biscuits

These dog biscuits are a gift with bite for your pet—and all the pet parents in your social circle. Tasty and made with Fido’s favourite ingredients, these treats were tested and approved by seven of our furry friends as well as a veterinarian.

6. Martini Olives

What’s the perfect sidekick for a classic gin martini? These plump, fragrant home-marinated flavour bombs, that’s what. We’ve tried them (more than a few times, actually) and can confirm that this is a winning combination.
