Buyer’s picks

Lisa Santos, Southport Grocery, Chicago


Our customers love to read; a great food-related book is perfect for any gift basket. Pasta sauces coupled with handmade regional pastas also work well, and Vosges Haute Chocolat has a well-known pretty purple box that stands out in baskets.


My picks include:

Field guide to cocktails, by Rob Chirico

Chef’s Secrets: Insider techniques from today’s culinary masters by Francine Maroukian

Vosges Haute Chocolat Truffles

Scarpetta Pasta Sauces

Eduardo’s pasta
