Gifts For The Home Cook & Foodie

Hedley & Bennett Smock Apron

We love Hedley & Bennett at Brigade. Made from 100% French Linen, this apron is far from your grandmothers. For experienced home chefs, or novices, this makes the perfect gift.

Mr. Pete's Olive Oil

Any home cook will tell you the importance of good olive oil. Your dish is only as good as the quality of ingredients you use, and the folks at Mr. Pete's get that. Their oil is made from the olives grown in their family grove in greece. Small batch, no-nonsense great oil.

Salt Fat Acid Heat 

This was our favorite cookbook of 2018, and we weren't alone. A NYT best seller and recent Netflix mini-series adaptation, Samin Nosrat does a beautiful job explaining the why behind each key element to a balanced dish. The home cook in your life will totally geek-out with this book, then make you lots of delicious things, so it's a win-win.

Jacobsen Salt Co. Finishing Salt

Second only to our love of good oil, home cooks love of good salt is no-joke. And good finishing salt is quite literally the icing on the cake for any home cooked meal. Jacobsen's does an amazing job, all salt made in-house and small batch, offering an incredible flavor and texture that will elevate even simple chocolate chip cookies. 

Jacobsen Salt Co., $55.00
