Delectable Holiday Picks for Your Foodie Connoisseurs

For those who moonlight in food.

For many, food is a love language – an assured satisfaction, if you will. Whether you consider yourself a sue-Gordon Ramsby or an A-List taste tester, everyone can agree that edible presents are foolproof. We all know someone – or maybe we are them – who considers themselves a titan of spice or perhaps a salty connoisseur, though there is always a route to challenging the palette. From the spicy realms of Youtube’s infamous celebrity “Hot Ones” interviews (or maybe you know it as “The Last Dab”) to the delicate mini cakes of New York sweets conglomerate Baked By Melissa, know that there is a little something for everyone. With the holiday season on the rise, what better way to challenge the tastes of our beloved than gifting them with flavor profiles that’ll rock even the most polymath master chefs?
