4 Perfect Gifts for the Foodie on Your List

4 Perfect Gifts for the Foodie on Your List
These Wisconsin-shaped cutting boards are made by local craftsman Wayne Waldner of Chosen Stones.

For the home cook on your gift-giving list, there is no better place to shop this holiday season than at The Kitchen Gallery. Look for copper pots and pans sparkling in the Charles Dickens-style shop window just off the Capitol Square. Once inside, prepare to feel completely at ease as you browse the airy aisles of glimmering glassware, colorful enameled cookware, brightly woven aprons in whimsical patterns and stainless steel gadgets glinting in the soft light. Linger over an extensive cookbook collection as you catch your breath from the hustle and bustle, jingle and jangle.

Just in time to kick off this year’s holiday shopping season, The Kitchen Gallery’s friendly and well-informed staff offer their top picks with comments for the perfect culinary gift:

Staub 10″ French made enamel coated cast iron fry pan. It’s described as “a work horse of a fry pan without the upkeep of unlined cast iron.” $99

Locally made 12″ x 12″ x 1″ Wisconsin-shaped cutting board in Maple. Crafted by local carpenter Wayne Waldner of Chosen Stones. $76

Stainless steel Chinois conical strainer. “For straining fine purees or soups—it’s perfect for the cook who has everything.” $30

All-Clad Tri-Ply 3-quart sauté pan. It’s “somewhat of a combination of a fry pan and a sauce pan.” $99
