This is what we like to call the true gift that keeps on giving. Literally. Sign someone up for a subscription this season and they’ll be thanking you for months.
Salt & Time: Butcher’s Box This delicious assortment of salted meats can be purchased as either a half- or full-year subscription. Each box will include selections from their fresh sausages, cooked charcuterie and salumi in addition to cooking suggestions, recipes and useful information on the local farms represented in the box.
Antonelli’s Cheese Shop: Cheese of the Month Club Three-, six- and twelve-month subscription options available. Depending on each month’s selections, the box may include accompanying pairings such as jams and chocolates.
Who doesn’t like a few festive things to spruce up their serving style? From locally-crafted cheese boards to delicate glassware and rustic table napkins, these shops have you covered.
GOURMET GIFTS & GADGETS
From customizable gift baskets to special-order tins of sweet treats, there are plenty of ways to give the gift of edible — and drinkable — delights from area merchants and fine foods purveyors.
Serve is a new destination for homegoods enthusiasts looking to add a special touch to their kitchen. From colorful cookware to an array of beautiful cookbooks and specialty food items, the shop even lets you create your own custom-wrapped gift basket.
SAY IT WITH A CARD
For those especially hard-to-shop-for friends on your list, why not go the gift card route this season? Several of Austin’s best establishments — bakeries, restaurants, cafés — offer gift certificate options!
And last, but certainly far from least, give the ultimate gift with passes to the 2013 Austin FOOD & WINE Festival next April!
