The first food-gifting book to give equal weight to recipes and their wrappings, with 100 recipes and full-color, step-by-step photos and instructions.

No gift demonstrates generosity and love more than one that is made by hand. And no homemade gift is more appreciated than one that’s edible, especially when it’s as pretty to look at and delectable to eat as the ones in Dinah Corley’s Gourmet Gifts. Corley offers up 100 scrumptious and splendidly crafted projects. It’s perfect for cooks who want to jump-start their presentation skills, for crafters who want to give their food gifts a significant upgrade from the standard plate of chocolate chip cookies or pan of lasagna, and for anyone who wants to give a gift that’s decidedly personal and sure to please. Gourmet Gifts includes both money-saving gifts and opulent special-occasion gifts, foods that ship well over a long distance, gifts for people who are under the weather, and loads of ideas for the holidays. Forty beautiful color photos help readers envision the final gift.

 preserved lemons 
A gift of a pretty jar holding a preserved lemon should thrill any experienced or adventurous cook. Salt-cured whole lemons preserved inextra-virgin olive oil are a staple in almost all Mediterranean cuisines. They are used to season slow-cooked dishes like tagines, and diced preservedlemon and its oil can be used to marinate or garnish grilled meats andseafood as well as feta and other dry cheeses. In Greek tavernas, small wedges of preserved lemon are served with drinks, along with slivers of dry, aged sheep’s milk cheeses, olives, and atbreads. The oil alone is aperfect addition to marinades and vinaigrettes. Whole cardamom pods andfenugreek seeds can be found in South Asian markets, natural-foods stores,and online (see Resources, page 000). Preserved lemons improve with age.It is essential to cover the lemons by at least a half an inch of olive oil inorder to store the jar safely at room temperature.
