Frank on Food
The holiday shopping season has officially begun, the person on your shopping list is crazy about cooking, and you'd like to get that person a practical gift that they might actually use. Allow me, devoted reader, to lift the burden of your decision-making.
With decades of kitchen experience under my apron, so to speak, I have come to some very definite conclusions about kitchen tools and gadgets. Some, of course, are absolutely necessary, some are simply fun to use and nice to have, and some are downright laughable, utterly useless, most likely fated to languish in a cluttered kitchen drawer and left to die of neglect.
Let's face it: Does any cook worth his salt really need a strawberry stem remover or a mushroom brush? Why buy an expensive set of metal pie weights when a cup of dried beans or rice will serve the same purpose? And please, don't get me started on garlic presses.
But here, in no specific order, are 10 inexpensive, "hot," sensible gadgets that any "serious" cook would be happy to find under the tree this season.
Happy holidays and happy shopping to all!
