Best Mother's Day Gifts for Foodie Moms
This is one of my favorite cookbooks of all time. Novice cooks and experienced cooks will learn so much from the four basic things you need to make a good dish: salt, fat, acid, and heat. Samin Nostrat examines the basic components that give recipes foundation and balance. Be sure to watch the companion Netflix series, as she travels the world to find the origins of these four elements. Her passion for ingredients and cooking is tangible, her laugh is infectious, and this New York Times Bestseller has also won a James Beard award.
Is your mom all caught up in the instant pot craze? This is the 6 quart size, it's also available in 3 quart or 8 quart, to suit her cooking style. It has 13 Smart Progams, and this model now has a quick adjustment feature so settings can be adjusted even after the cooking process has started. She can do everything from making yogurt to cooking short ribs. And all without turning on the oven and heating up the house.
What if a Mother's Day gift could transport your mom to another country? Elizabeth Minchilli is one of my favorite food writers and she knows her way around Italy. She's lived there since the late '80's and her blog, apps, books, and food tours feature the real Italian foodways, traditions, and products, not the touristy stuff. I used her app to find restaurants when we were in Florence, and every meal was spectacular. This will make mom feel like she's taken a cooking class in Italy!
Air frying is all the rage This air fryer is easy to use with a one-touch LED panel, no guess work involved. It has 11 presets so mom can make eggs, roasted veggies, desserts, and almost any protein. Air frying means no icky smells left hanging around the house, a feature that foodie moms are sure to love, and it's safer and lower fat than traditional frying.
Spiralizers are about more than zucchini noodles. With 7 different blades, this tool helps mom slice onions, make perfect curly fries, and chop lettuce, too. It features a super-duper suction cup on the bottom to hold it in place during use. It comes with 4 recipe e-books and stores safely and compactly.
All the bakers are baking from this cookbook from Odette Williams. She offers 10 base cake recipes, 15 topping recipes and loads of decorating ideas. This is a Mother's Day gift that will keep on giving, because a baker could mix and match recipes from this book for years and years to come.
