According to Rachael, what she gifts the people on her 28-page Hanukkah and Christmas list hasn’t changed too much through the years — since she was a kid, in fact!
And you may be amused to know how she divvies up that list: By the cooks and the non-cooks!
Yep, every year, Rachael gives her closest friends a recipe coupled with everything they need to bring that recipe to life. (And satisfy their tummies!)
Back in the day, she hand-drew the recipes and attached them to a recyclable grocery bag. But these days, she’s given her peeps a little upgrade.
Now, while Rach loves gifting her cruet set teamed with her own oil and vinegar (so they’re already useful!), she said all of her friends and family have them at this point, so she's had to get even more creative over the years.
Check out exactly what she’s giving chef and non-chef friends and family!
FOR THE NON-COOKS:
2. A bag of pasta
3. Jarred sauce
5. Dark chocolate ("So they don’t have to bake!")
6. Big chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
8. Hot pepper sauce (to spice up that jarred sauce!)
11. Rachael’s moppine (a potholder, an apron, and a dish towel, all in one!)
FOR THE COOKS:
One of Rachael’s cast-iron enamel pots filled with foodie gifts from D’Italia Foods — including some of Rachael's own products, like her olive oil and vinegar!
