Everyone enjoys a good noshing. But then there is that person who lives for the epicurean experience. So, what do you give to the connoisseur of fine cuisine? Well, if you’re choosing quality food products, you’re probably on the right track. But we’ve taken gift-giving for the gourmand a step further and paired quality fare made by local businesses for a foodie gift guide that everyone will want to dig into!
Cheese Lover’s Delight
Do you know a nature-loving cheesemonger? If so, we have the perfect gift combo. First, let’s start with the cheese. Formaggio Kitchen has a few different “Cheese of the Month” options starting at three months and up to a full year.
Make that cheese gift extra special with a unique American Stone Craft cheese plate, harvested from one of the many New England rock walls that pepper the New England landscape. No two are the same. This beauty comes from a stone on Allandale Farm in Boston, MA ($195.00). Check out their other products too!
Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and still sweet and scrumptious? Cupcake therapy makes gifting for those with allergens not only easy but incredibly sweet! Founded by a foodie with food allergies who makes these Boston-based treats with premium ingredients only. For $42.00, the dairy-free holiday assortment is a bargain loaded with enough goodies for everyone. They also ship nationwide.
When on Nantucket, Barlett Farms is THE place to find specialty foods to make a memorable picnic, lunch, or dinner. Now, you can order from their online shop and ship all of that tasty goodness to someone you love. We recommend including their Beach Plum Jam ($5.99) for a flavor that is 100% Nantucket during the cold winter months.
Nantucket Faraway chocolates are made with extra care and love to ensure their chocolates will take you “Faraway.” They roast, crack, grind, and conch organic cacao beans from small family farms on the equator that have taken a pledge to farm ethically and sustainably. The result? Creamy deliciousness. Check out their online shop HERE. For anyone on the island, delivery is free!
