Review

“As warm and gracious as Maggie herself, Food Gift Love is the handbook for anyone looking for unique and delicious ways to welcome a new neighbor, comfort a freshly minted mama, or simply tell a friend that you care.”                                                           
MARISA McCLELLAN, author of Preserving by the Pint and Food in Jars
 
 
“I’ve long been a fan of Maggie Battista’s carefully curated shop, Eat Boutique, so it was no surprise that her long-awaited cookbook would be a creative, inspiring collection. Showcasing edible homemade gifts such as Roasted Banana Bread, Bourbon-Vanilla Cherries, and Jam-Swirled Marshmallows, Food Gift Love reaches far beyond what many of us typically think of when we hear the words ‘homemade gift.’ In Maggie’s generous, reassuring hands, we’re shown that it is indeed possible to make a gift for every occasion or inclination. A most welcome addition to my collection, and one that will be used throughout the year.”             
 – MEGAN GORDON, owner, Marge Granola, and author of Whole-Grain Mornings
 
 
Food Gift Love is a tasty collection of sweet treats and delicious bites that make perfect gifts, although you’ll be tempted to make an extra batch… to keep for yourself!”    
  DAVID LEBOVITZ, author of My Paris Kitchen
 
 
Food Gift Love is full of recipes I want to cook and ideas I want to borrow, but most of all, it’s full of heart. Maggie’s spirit of generosity is contagious! This little book makes me want to be a better friend.”
MOLLY WIZENBERG, author of Delancey and A Homemade Life
 
 
Food Gift Love’s recipes are a double pleasure: First there’s the pleasure of making them, and then there’s the pleasure of sharing them as gifts, boxed and bowed, bottled and beautifully beribboned. From cookies and jams, marshmallows and extracts, to cordials and curds, Maggie’s book is filled with delicious ideas to help you share the foods you love best with the people you love most.”                                                                
  DORIE GREENSPAN, author of Baking Chez Moi
 
“This book is a reminder that a culinary gift—made with heart and thoughtfulness—is a way to make someone feel special and cared for. It’s a book that celebrates all the possibilities that stem from little gestures and generosity.”                                                                   
HEIDI SWANSON, author of Super Natural Every Day
 
 
“In Food Gift Love, Maggie’s generous and kind spirit shines through with a lovely selection of well-curated food gifts that you’ll make and share with pride. I can’t wait to get started!”
JOANNE CHANG, owner, Flour Bakery + Cafe

I am very excited about Food Gift Love, a new debut cookbook written by the talented Maggie Battista, creator of Eat Boutique, a blog and on-line curated food gift shop.

Food Gift Love is filled with ideas for delicious food gifts to create in your own kitchen. I found myself bookmarking the recipes on almost every page. However, what makes this book stand out from others like it are the elegant, yet simple, packaging ideas that accompany each recipe. I didn’t realize that my drawer of extra bits of ribbon and my box of extra scraps of pretty paper can be elevated from “junk” to embellishments to decorate my food gifts.

I also love Maggie’s inclusive definition of food gifts which bring food brought to potlucks and other shared meals into the fold. She is so right that these are food gifts even if I previously thought of them in an altogether different category. I feel like this expanded way of thinking gives me license to dress up the presentation next time I bring a dish to share.

So far, I’ve tried about half a dozen recipes from this book. Each one has been a winner. The instructions are clear, and every one I tried worked without a hitch. This is a book I’ll reach for over and over again, during the upcoming holidays and the whole year through.

This book is truly lovely - the design is crisp and clean, the recipes are easy to follow, and the book itself is so darn organized the OCD perfectionist in me gets giddy every time I crack the book open! It's a wholeheartedly thoughtful book, the author Maggie and her team clearly worked hard on creating something unique and accessible, even for new bakers.

My heritage is predominantly Italian, so I show my love for my family and friends through food. I really enjoy cooking, baking, and *surprise* gifting food items. The book has some great ideas for gifting foods, following sweet themes like a "Goodnight Gift Collection", as well as other recipes that can double as gifts for people. You know, like when you are going to dinner at a friend's house but don't want to be predictable bringing a bottle of wine? What about bringing some infused oil, or a homemade vinegar? Or, get real fancy and bring a homemade punch - I've got my eye on the sparkling elderflower punch!If you get reeeeally indecisive there's a handy flowchart to help you decide...WHAAAT, mind blown! Again, how thoughtful!

Don't shy away from this book if you think it's just food gift ideas - it's really not. It happens to be chock full of wonderful recipes, spins on traditional and classic foods (a roasted banana bread?!!), that can also be gifted to people. As someone who loves cookbooks, I'm happy to have added this one to my collection.

You know what they say, winter is coming...and so are the holidays. Time to get food gifting, and Food Gift Love is the [best & most adorable] way to do it!

I love this book. Now - full disclosure, I actually recipe-tested for this book. So I have known about it through the development process -- but it also means that I have tried a whole bunch of recipes from the book!! and I've tried more since I got my own copy now that it is out!

I really love the way that this book is split into different categories for types of gifting or occasions -- like going to a potluck, or stuff to have in the pantry for quick gifts, or sweets, or jams, etc. It makes it easy to look through for reasonable things to make as you approach an occasion!

A few of my favorite recipes in the book:
- the popcorn that is highlighted above actually -- I made it and used it for favors at my baby shower recently!
- the panna cotta with quick strawberry jam. OMG this is SO SO good. I make it all the time as a dessert (and yes, I did little cups of it at my recently baby shower) -- it is so easy, it feels healthy with the greek yogurt, but it is also sinfully delicious with all the cream. And the jam so quick and easy to make
- the honeyed kumquats -- I am waiting for them to be in season again so that I can make a nice batch for gifts for the rest of the year!
- the pantry cookies -- the pretzels and wheat give them such a nice crunch and salt component, and the butter and chocolate make them sweet and delicious

when I finally saw the cookbook with all the recipes put together, I was really thrilled, because there are a TON of recipes in there that I am looking forward to using -- not just 2-3, which happens sometimes. Also great the ideas that Maggie gives for gift packaging for the items -- I love having that for inspiration. Definitely a great book, and a great gift!

This book is GORGEOUS! If you're the type to buy cookbooks as eye candy, then this is for you. I also think the ideas are brilliant and even though some of the segmenting seems a little arbitrary (Why are preserved lemons for a happy occasion while salty maple butter is for a sad one?) and some recipes that are supposed to be gifts say they're to be consumed fresh from the oven (they also have instructions of reheating them if you need to, so that's not a real quibble), I unequivocally recommend this book.

The recipes seem solid so far, but I'll be making more as we head into the gift season. The "extras" are fun and include flow charts, collections, and beautiful packaging ideas. This definitely isn't one that will sit on the shelf unused.
