2021 Christmas Gift Guide

2021 Christmas Gift Guide

It's time to ditch those last-minute, mindless purchases this Christmas. Forget all the rushed online orders for risky gifts and endless excess packaging. Giving the gift of home-cooked food is one of the most thoughtful (and satisfying!) presents to receive at Christmas time, but we don't all have the to get creative in the kitchen. Luckily our talented team of cooks have you got you covered for all your food gifts this year.

Everything you need to build your own house, including delicious homemade gingerbread cookies, an assortment of sprinkles and sweeties, and a bag of ready made royal icing. A great gift for creative kids (and adults!)

Elin’s ‘just add’ gift bags are a fun present for people of all ages. Choose from Kladdkaka (Swedish chocolate cake), or Franska Pepparkkor (Swedish spiced biscuits) and you can try baking something new at home.

Give the gift of festive family fun with one of Laura’s Christmas pizza kits which includes slow proved dough balls, semolina, San Marzano tomato sauce, Fior di Latte mozzarella, parmesan, Italian fennel sausage, pancetta, caramelised red onion, chestnuts, and fresh sage. 

Rita’s traditional biscuit gift bags bring the taste of Sicily to Bristol.  The almond piparelli make the perfect accompaniment to Sicilian sweet wine, and the croccantini are delicious with a cup of tea.

Rhiannon’s slow cooked ham finished with a festive sweet glaze and accompanied by a jar of spiced pear chutney full of Christmas flavours makes the perfect gift for busy friends this year. A great staple to keep in the fridge and enjoy during the countdown to Christmas.

Home-made stollen beats its shop-bought rival every time. Priscilla’s traditional German recipe includes nuts, spices, candied fruits and is covered in powdered sugar and marzipan,  finished in a lovely gift wrap.

Home-baker Anne makes old-fashioned crumbly fudge using a family recipe, as well as a delicious take on sourdough brownies. Beautifully wrapped in compostable cellophane, they both make great gifts for those with a sweet-tooth.

Let them choose what’s on the menu with an All About The Cooks gift voucher. Simply enter an amount, the recipients name and email along with the date you’d like them to receive the digital voucher and they can enjoy whatever they want, whenever they want it.

Merry Christmas from the team at All About The Cooks!
