Bite Me More’s Top Gift Picks for Foodies

gingerbread_brownies3

This Holiday, the Bite Me More sisters share with us their Top 5 Gift Picks from the FoodiePages.ca marketplace.

1. ICEWINE VINEGAR

This vinegar makes a delicious dressing or is great on it’s own drizzled over steamed/roasted vegetables.

2. DRIP MAPLE SYRUP

IMG12

The depth of flavour in this syrup keeps you coming back for more. You don’t have to use too much from all the flavour it adds to your morning breakfast or try a tablespoon in a pureed sweet potato soup for a kick of maple sweetness.

3. LAURA SLACK CHOCOLATE ARTIST MILK BAR COLLECTION

IMG13

With all the gourmet chocolate bars out now, this caramel collection is truly dreamy – the creamy chocolate leaves you with a smooth taste in your mouth, and, paired with an espresso, you’ll be in heaven.

4. STASIS PRESERVES DISCOVERY BOX

IMG14

We love this package! Both the spreads work so well over the holidays when making a cheese platter. They pair with sharp, soft and mouldy cheese. Try a spoon of the caramelized onion spread on a crostini and top with a sharp gruyere. The hot sauce not only gives a kick but also adds nice flavour to anything from a roast to lamb.

5. BATCH SALTED CARAMEL POPCORN

IMG15

This popcorn tastes homemade, crunchy and sweet. It can be put out for guests to nibble with cocktails or used to garnish your dessert. Top a chocolate cake with this sweet and salty popcorn and it takes it up another level. No time to bake dessert? A bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with caramel sauce and finished with this popcorn will have everyone raving.
