ALLI411 2010 Foodie Holiday Gift Guide

Whether you are looking for holiday gifts for your favorite foodies, hostess gifts or a treat for yourself, Alli411 has got you covered this holiday season.  These high-quality, out-of-the-ordinary holiday gifts will help satisfy those with serious taste buds and who love food.

Bacon Jam by Chicks with Knives is spreadable bacon made with bacon, slow cooked onions, natural sweeteners and spices.  It's fantastic stirred in to soup; on a grilled cheese sandwich or hamburger; with pasta, with your favorite charcuterie and of course, eaten right from the jar.  Bacon Jam is 100% natural and gluten-free. It is also PERISHABLE and should be refrigerated upon arrival.  They recommend warming the bacon-jam slightly prior to eating.
Fancy silverware and bone china on a paper place mat is the ultimate fauxpaus that's simply cool.  The pad of paper place mats are convenient and look great on my square, walnut table.  So what if the china is packed away, the silverware is unpolished and the crystal is gathering dust. Just tear some of these soy ink-printed paper place mats from their tablet, slip them around your tabletop and voila! You've gone from ho-hum to haute cuisine in an instant. By Cake Vintage. 

An essential foodie reference manual/cookbook/coffee table book written by Mark Bitterman, Selmelier at The Meadow that might convince the reader to stop using Kosher salt.  Give this along with one of your favorite salts.
Himalayan Salt Blocks
Whether you cook right on this real, salt block or use as a beautiful serving item, this trendy item is a fun gift that most foodies will enjoy.

My favorite knives-of-the-moment.  Zirconium oxide blades resist corrosion and hold their edge for months—even years—without sharpening. Includes 5½" Santoku and 3" paring knife. Made in Japan.
