Last Minute Christmas Ideas for The Foodie in Your Life

How many times have you been to the shops this week? We’re betting a lot and it can be hard to find inspiration for a thoughtful gift when you’re fighting the hordes. Save yourself the trouble and stress, by giving a cookbook. Whether you’re gifting a master chef or a kitchen novice, a cookbook is always a welcome treat. Here is a selection of our favourite books that we’re kind of hoping make their way under our own tree on Christmas morning.
