The Best Gifts for the Food Lover Who Already Has Everything
Does the foodie in your life already have all the best gadgets and cookware?
We get it, foodies can be a particular lot. Sure, they love cooking and working with great ingredients, but that usually means they’ve already stocked their kitchen with all the latest and greatest cooking appliances and tools. Let’s face it, you usually discover all the newest cooking trends and techniques from them!
So rather than trying to find something they don’t already own, why not focus on giving them the ingredients they need to put all that cookware to good use? One thing you can know for sure is that while they might not need another skillet, there is never an end to the need for things to cook in that skillet.
Still not sure where to start? Then think about beginning with what most call the “center of the plate” or in other words, the proteins. Pretty much every great meal starts with the protein--steak and…, chicken and…, fish and…--so if you’re giving high quality proteins, then you’re certain to give something they both want and need.
At Greensbury, our commitment is to sourcing only the finest, healthiest, best tasting proteins. Whether it’s beef that is 100% American sourced, USDA certified organic, and entirely grass-fed and grass-finished, organic pasture-fed chicken, organic pork, wild-caught seafood or any of our other carefully sourced proteins, you know you’re giving something that is truly unique.
Here are just a few of our favorite gift items.
Dry Aged Steaks
For most foodies, dry-aged steaks represent the absolute best of the best. The dry aging process not only helps give the steak a wonderful tenderness, but also brings out amazing flavors. Choose from either the classic New York Strip, or the staple of top steakhouses around the world, the Ribeye. Either way, you can’t go wrong!
Filet mignon, or “tender filet,” is the widely accepted finest of all cuts of beef. Hand trimmed from the smaller end of the tenderloin muscle, filet mignon is the most tender of any steak. A signature item of fine-dining restaurants, filet mignon is a cut that will impress any foodie.
Wild Caught Maine Lobster Tails
Adored by foodies all over, wild-caught lobster is a gift that will really get their attention. Paired with filet mignon for the ultimate in surf-n-turf or served on its own, nothing beats the rich, buttery texture of wild-caught lobster.
You don’t find duck breast in every high-end restaurant, but when it’s on the menu, you know you’re in for something special. It’s equally uncommon to find duck breasts in many grocery stores so treat that foodie in your life to a pleasant surprise!
Sometimes called North America’s original red meat, grass-fed bison is incredibly lean, tender and flavorful. Of everything on our list this year, bison is the one thing the foodie in your life is least likely to have tried in a restaurant or at home. So if you want to give them something truly unexpected, then bison is the way to go.
When it comes to buying gifts for food lovers, just remember there’s more to it than just buying a particular cut. Make sure you’re giving foods that are sourced to the highest standards for taste, quality, healthfulness, and animal and environmental welfare.
