The Serious Eaters have spent a lot of time finding the best foodie gifts out there for our Gift Guides. But what do we really want for the holidays? Find out what made our personal wish lists after the jump.
Ed Levine: Sausage from Southside Market in Texas. It's the best smoked sausage ever. So juicy, it's guaranteed to stain your shirt. We're giving a whole mess of it away on Serious Eats over the holidays. Too bad I'm not eligible to win. from $30.99 at southsidemarket.com
Adam Kuban: Oh, I don't know. I don't really need anything. Maybe a decent chef’s knife (or a sharpening for my current knife) or a nice All-Clad sauté pan to replace my who-knows-how-many-years-old flimsy pan. $95 to $255 from Amazon.com
Robyn Lee: A 35-piece box of macarons from Pierre Hermé: I doubt my choice surprises anyone considering how obsessed with macarons I am, specifically the ones from Pierre Hermé because they're the best I've ever eaten. Unfortunately, I don't have any Paris connections to get me a box. I'll just stare at it longingly. And weep. From afar. 68€ from Pierre Hermé
Erin Zimmer: Ever since I studied in the Czech Republic, I've appreciated brewing traditions. I'd love to say "fermenting" was one of my hobbies. And when I get really nerdy into it, I'll branch into kombucha, mead, and other liquid science projects. $69.95 at www.shopbrewhorizons.com
Michele Humes: My youthful days of scorning the microwave are long behind me. I don't want to have to make ganache on one more rickety double boiler; I don't want to amass another full sink of dishes just to reheat my lunch. Santa, baby, bring me a Panasonic NN-SD377S. $115.69 at Amazon.com
