Happy Holidays…🎄🎁

This year I’ve rounded up a definitive list of things I’ve loved having around the kitchen. Living in New York City, we have to make the most of our living space. This means everything must be functional and useful, but it also means stylish, since there’s uh, nowhere to invisibly store it all. Whether you’re a kitchen newbie that doesn’t know what to ask for, or you’re shopping for one, I’ve got you covered. Everything linked in the photos is Amazon Prime eligible, so they’ll ship fast! Gift yourself, gift a friend, gift em’ all.

1.Chinese Soul Food - by Hsiao-Ching Chou

From $12.99 - In a time when trendy Instagram-famous cookbooks seems to rule the world, I’ve picked a book that just felt right. This book resonated with me for many reasons, and I hope it does with you too.

2. Cuisinart Smart Stick

$25.99 - A hand immersion blender that’ll get you perfect dressings, soups, and purees. If you never made them before, you surely will now.

3. Anova Sous Vide Precision System

From $64.99 - Cook anything. Perfectly. Every time. The millennial’s “set it and forget it” means tracking temperature from your phone!

4. Shun 7” Santoku

$99.95 - A kinda serious knife for a kinda serious cook. You’re gonna be mad you didn’t use one before

5. Lodge 12-inch Cast Iron Skillet

$29,99 - People always ask me my most-used kitchen item and this is it. The heat is un-matched. And you’ll also feel like a pioneer.

6. Le Creuset Salt Crock

$35.95 - Be your own salt bae. Fill it up with Maldon flakes or Dixie Crystal. Pick your poison.

7. Kate Spade New York Recipe Book

$34.00 - I love writing out my own recipes. Don’t get me wrong, Google Docs is my first love, but looking back at the ideas, notes, and measurements all on paper is kind of cool. And this notebook is cuh-yoot!

8. Di Oro 3-Piece Silicon Spatula Set

$29.97 - I can’t tell you how many times a day I use silicon spatulas, and how important it is to have MANY of them around. Did I mention these are heat resistant up to 600 degrees?


$23.98 - A set of self-sealing, heat-resistant silicon bags that you can use with your new sous vide system, or just to store produce that you’d like to keep fresh!


$24.99 - Comes in 8 colors. Keeping my tea or coffee hot while I’m cooking (or doing literally anything) is a major key!
