Sue Baker's view...

From the cover this looks like a run-of-the-mill “gifty” book but inside it’s a treasure of delicious gifts to make, the illustrations are gorgeous and there’s as much care taken with the containers and packaging as the wonderful treats to be found inside. Often culinary gift books tend to be based on cakes and biscuits but here you will find a wider range of gifts to make – friends and family will be duly impressed!

Synopsis

Handmade Gifts from the Kitchen More Than 100 Culinary Inspired Presents to Make and Bake by Alison Walker

Handmade Gifts from the Kitchen is a delightful gift in itself, as well as providing a beautiful collection of culinary gift ideas for you to make and bake at home for friends and family. In a world where mass-produced is the norm, 'home-made' carries a certain potency of care and thought. Show that special someone how much you care by making or baking a wonderful gift, whatever the occasion. Indulgent fudge, warming liqueurs, spicy chutneys, sweet and crumbly home-made biscuits ...the list goes on. But don't save such joys just for Christmas, Easter or Thanksgiving - a jar of your favourite preserve or a box of home-made truffles is a delightful way to say thank you to someone special. Full of love and originality, the recipes are a pleasure to create and wrap as well as to give. And it's not just the making, it's the wrapping, too. Decorative jars, tins, baskets and boxes add a personal touch that ensures they'll still be remembered long after the food has been enjoyed. That said, a range of containers isn't essential; Handmade Gifts from the Kitchen offers a range of ideas for wrapping your gifts in a stunning and stylish way, so that every gift is special.
