The new COVID-induced work-from-home life has changed many things in our daily routines. One clear change has been our relationship with at-home cooking. From baking sourdough bread to cooking Asian fusion meals, the time spent in our kitchens has greatly increased in 2020. And while some have discovered the joys of making simple recipes for the first time, others have been further refining their skills in their favorite culinary hobby. With the Holiday season upon us, we hoped to help you find minimalist gifts for the minimalist foodie in your life who is looking to up their cooking game!
A subscription to Trade Coffee
It is deeply satisfying to wake up to a warm cup of freshly ground, flavorful coffee. Exploring different flavors and aromas of coffee without having to spend much can be a great gift idea for the coffee-lover in your life. Trade is a coffee subscription box and online retailer that connects you with high-quality coffee from over 50 roasters and over 400 types of beans. In addition, their coffee is roasted and shipped-to-order directly from the roaster to the consumer to ensure maximum freshness. You can even pair this gift with the Scribble Travel Coffee Mug from Pas Mon Style!
Shun Classic 8 Chef’s Knife
A high-quality durable knife not only enhances the overall cooking experience, but sharper knives are also actually safer to utilize (the decreased pressure lessens the risk of it slipping).
This Shun knife has been referenced as one of the best Japanese knives for under $150 by multiple knife-afficionado blogs. The 1,300 five star Amazon reviews are further restatement to support that claim.
There is an undeniable minimalist beauty in a high-end Japanese knife. You can see the craftsmanship that went into making it, visibly reflected in the fine details of this object. A good knife is the ultimate minimalist foodie’s investment piece.
Herb Garden in a Box
Your minimalist foodie friend could be living in a smaller space as well, without a garden or a balcony to plant their own herbs. This is where the herb garden in a box comes into play! This gift idea takes little space in the kitchen, adds a touch of “greenery” into your living space. It also ensures that one will never be out of fresh herbs to add to their imaginative cooking.
Our Place Pan
Nothing takes more space in the kitchen than the set of 5 different pots and pans that your relative gifted you a while back! Finding the space to store them is always a nightmare, and the cleaning process isn’t the best either.
The perfect solution to this common problem is the Always Pan! This do-it-all nonstick pan aims to replace 8 traditional pieces of cookware, and its monochrome minimalist design is also quite appealing. The Always Pan replaces a fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest.
Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t!
Reusable silicone storage products
The amount of cling film and plastic ziplock bags that we go through in the kitchen is incredibly wasteful. However, these items are a necessity in every kitchen to elongate the shelf-life of our foods. Any minimalist foodie (or anyone for that matter) would appreciate these silicone food pouches and stretchable lids, as they are easy to clean, easy to use, and are far more sustainable!
