Gourmet Food Gifts  


Dee Dee’s Gourmet:
Cheese Straws & Minis

Cheese straws are addictive: buttery pastry flavored with Cheddar, Parmesan or other cheese. Dee Dee’s makes them in long straw form or in the bite-size nibbles shown at right. They’re addictive as a crunchy treat, and perfect to serve with beer and Martinis. If Dad likes his snacks spicy, order the Jalapeño Cheddar flavor. For large orders (15 tins or more), you can have a custom label for $25 (free if you order more than 50 tins). Keep that in mind for holiday gifts.

Morning coffee just got more interesting. These all-natural, homemade, hand-rolled swirly buns come in both sweet and savory varieties in more than a dozen flavors that include Almond, Chocolate, Cheese, Peanut Butter & Jelly and Pepperoni. Dad can enjoy them as is, or warm from the microwave.

    $22 A Dozen
  • Savory Swirlys
    Mini Swirly Buns

Artisan Olive Oil

Is there a more appropriate gift for a dad or grand-dad than an olive oil made by three generations of Californians working together? The Lucero family, which includes grandfather, father and grandson—makes delicious artisan oils. You can send one bottle, a gift set or anything in between.

Perky Jerky:
Caffeinated Beef Jerky

Perky Jerky is “the world’s first all-natural performance enhancing meat snack.” In other words, protein- and sugar-laden beef jerky has been caffeinated with guarana, a natural energy booster with about twice the caffeine content of a coffee bean. The idea is, if you need energy but don’t like energy drinks or coffee—or if you’re simply hungry—tear open a portion-controlled package and enjoy a flavorful snack full of nourishment and energy. Caffeinated beef jerky: Gotta love it—and we did. The 100% beef jerky is tender and flavorful and yes, it gave us ENERGY! A new NIBBLE favorite snack.

Rancho Gordo:
Deluxe Gift Box

These are not just any ol’ beans. As grown by heirloom bean specialist Rancho Gordo, they are beautiful to look at and eye-opening in their flavor. The Deluxe Gift Box is full of Rancho Gordo heirloom beans, including Cargamanto Cranberry, Mayacoba, Midnight, Christmas Lima and Vaquero. The gift also includes an autographed copy of Heirloom Beans by Steve Sando and Vanessa Barrington and a tote bag—but Dad won’t be toting these beans: He’ll be devouring them and asking for more!
