Everyone wants to make it homemade. The gift-giver, who would rather offer a more personal present than spend time combing the shops. The food-lover, who adores preparing distinctive, delicious foods in her own kitchen. The crafts-maker, who loves to create, wrap, and decorate truly gorgeous gifts. Now the perfect book for all of them is here: Homemade, the ultimate treasury of food gifts from the heart.

Homemade is filled with an incredible variety of easy, irresistible recipes for everything from the perfect little tea cake to bring as a hostess gift to an assortment of fudge that makes a delightful Christmas present. Delicious ideas include:

• Unique and luscious baked treats like Hazelnut Pound Cake, Chocolate Butter Balls, and Carrot-Ginger Tea Bread

•Jarred delights such as Spiced Candied Nuts and Strawberry-Grand Marnier Jam

•Wonderful additions to the food-lover’s pantry, including Provençal Oil, Red Chile Salsa, and Thai Peanut Sauce

• Plus chutneys, relishes, and dressings—even snacks and drinks

But Homemade is much more than a collection of recipes. Since a big part of every gift’s appeal is its presentation, author Judith Choate includes plenty of ideas and tips on how to wrap, pack, and ship food gifts with creativity and style. You’ll learn how to cleverly combine food gifts into the perfect package, how to decorate jar tops, where to find beautiful bottles for condiments and flavored oils, and more.

Generously illustrated with vibrant full-color photographs, Homemade shows just how easy (and fun) it is to make delectable gifts everyone will be thrilled to receive.

“The most precious gift you can give to someone you love may be a copy of this book!” —Chef Alain Sailhac, The French Culinary Institute

“This is not merely a collection of recipes; it is an extraordinary celebration of delicious homemade gifts. Judith Choate’s generous nature and love for food infuses every page and compels us to jump into the kitchen and whip up a batch of fudge for a neighbor or friend—just for the sheer pleasure of giving.” —Tish Boyle, food editor of Chocolatier magazine and author of Chocolate Passion
