Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Gifts made in one?s own kitchen possess a quality that even the most exquisite store-bought items will never match: a homemade gift, no matter how simple, shows thoughtfulness and care. Choate, who wrote her first book on food gifts, The Gift-Giver?s Cookbook, in 1978, presents an array of delicacies made for giving in this volume, including cookies, breads, candies, jellies, syrups, chutneys, olives, sauces and snacks. She explains how to present and pack foods for giving, suggesting creative ways to dress up jars and boxes with cellophane and ribbon, and instructing readers on using bubble wrap and foam packing materials for breakable containers. The foods themselves range from standards like Lemon-Poppy Seed Pound Cake and Irish Soda Bread to more unusual fare, such as Hot Pepper Jelly, Fresh Fig Relish and Scallion Pancakes. Choate?s comprehensive instructions and serving suggestions will guide readers in preparing homemade gifts for housewarmings, cocktail parties, showers and almost any other occasion. 100 color photos.
