Art of the Table

The sister store of Aperitivo is of course the perfect place to start a foodie journey. Pick from a predesigned gift box ranging from the fun More S’mores Please to the gourmet Paella Party. Or go for kitchen gifts like decorative towels, handmade wooden utensils, and much more.

Fustini’s Oils & Vinegars
24 E. 8th St., Holland

For the friend who thinks all oils are equal, head to Fustini’s and pick up a gift set. For example, the Sweet Italian set features Fustini’s 18-year Traditional balsamic, Sicilian lemon balsamic, Tuscan Herb olive oil, Garlic olive oil, and a card with application ideas. They can use it in marinades, sautes, dressings, bread dipping — whatever they like!

Cooking Classes
The Local Epicurean
1440 Wealthy St. SE, Grand Rapids

Give a man some pasta, you feed him for a day. Teach him to make his own pasta, you feed him for life, and a class at The Local Epicurean is a super fun way to do just that. Pasta, Asian noodles, gelato, steak — whatever your recipient loves, an expert chef will walk them through it alongside drink and food.

Spice & Tea Merchants
435 Ionia Ave. SW, Grand Rapids
132 Mason St., Saugatuck

This specialty shop began in Saugatuck and is slowly spreading across the country, and it’s the perfect place to buy gifts for someone who barely knows how to cook. Grab a bag of Cherry BBQ for a nice, easy rub perfect on any meats. Or get them a soup mix — just add broth! It’s easy to cook when the flavors are done for you.

Chateau Chantal Wines
In stores

Dinner isn’t just about the food — great drinks are crucial too. Gift one of Michigan’s many local wines, such as their Naughty and Nice bottles, perfect for the holidays. Naughty Red is a dry red blend with no harsh or bitter tastes & full of deep fruit flavors. Throw the rules out the window – this red is even versatile enough to go well with fish – now that is naughty! Nice White is a sweet, luxurious, unoaked white wine blend that expresses a plush, fruitful charm. Pairs well with rich creamy cheeses & sweet fruit desserts. Enjoy chilled.

Stone House Bread
In stores
stonehousebread.com

For decades, Stone House Bread has been baking hand-formed artisan loaves with organic flour, and they’re available online and in-stores. Get your loved one away from the processed white bread in stores and they’ll be hooked after one loaf of San Francisco Sourdough or North Country bread. Who knows, maybe they’ll even take up baking themselves!
