The newest gift guide of 2022 is all about the home chef! Which considering that a large part of my “brand” is helping people cook more from scratch, this one seems overdue!
So, I went through my kitchen (figuratively, from the couch) and thought about all the tools and equipment that I use on a very regular basis. Fun fact: the better your tools are, the simpler and more enjoyable cooking will be. Thankfully, good tools don’t have to break the bank!
I hope that this list helps to give you ideas for home chefs on your list, or if you’re the home chef, gives you some ideas of tools and equipment to invest in in the future.
