We all need food to survive, but some people live to eat and enjoy food. How do you pick out the perfect gift for them?
“We prefer our gifts, both food & non-food, to have several components that tell a story,” Ilene Rosen, chef, buyer, and co-owner of 606 R&D and R&D Foods says about the items the Brooklyn restaurant and speciality foods market carry. “We’ll buy an inexpensive wooden board, pair it with a wedge of fresh cheese and unique jam. Go ahead and throw in a pair of vintage port glasses picked up at the flea market to add an unexpected element. An old-fashioned wrapping in brown paper and raffia–literally–ties it all together.”
We’re pretty sure that any of the items that range in price, size, and function would probably also do the trick.
