Some of the most wonderful gifts you can give people at Christmas time are foods that you have brought back from another country – things that they cannot get here. But if you haven’t traveled to some exotic land, present your friends with some homemade gifts. Aside from their plain deliciousness, these gifts show more thoughtfulness and generosity than any store bought, mass produced present can.
Homemade sweet or savory gifts are often what I bring for house presents to holiday parties or give to friends who seem to have everything. I hope that some of my favorite recipes for edible presents will bring you into the kitchen to create gifts to be shared with your friends or simply to have on hands for your own private celebrations. Buon Natale.
