There’s nothing quite like food to bring us together—that’s what the holidays are all about, right? Wrong. When it comes to your foodie friends, they’re more likely to share a photo of pasta to Instagram than their coveted 7 pm Carbone reservation. Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally understandable given that prime-time seating is nearly impossible to get. And while you might not be able to gift your food-loving friends a Michelin Star this year, you can do the next best thing and give them the food-centric shit that’ll make them feel like the critic they’re already pretending to be.
And listen, you don’t want to just get them another cookbook—how boring is that when they probably have a lifetime subscription to the NYT Cooking app? Now you can get them anything from food fashion to banana bookmarks, and even memoirs to learn what’s going on behind the scenes at their favorite spots. I’ve searched high and low for the best gifts for the food lovers in your life so you can sit on Open Table until a reservation opens up. Bon appetit!
