We’re scouring the design world for the season’s coolest gifts. Next up, accessories for the gourmand, from Normann Copenhagen, Joseph Joseph, Le Creuset and others.
1 Chop Knife by Normann Copenhagen
The rolling action of this design by LucidiPevere for Normann Copenhagen crushes nuts and chocolate, or quickly minces garlic and herbs. A blade cover keeps hands safe when you store the knife in the utensil drawer. It comes in black, blue and grey. $45
2 Barchitecture Cocktail Napkins
Finding inspiration at the bottom of a martini glass is possible. This stocking stuffer for the aficionado of architecture and libation is available from the newly opened gift shop at Philip Johnson’s Glass House. $18
3 Pie by Joseph Joseph
Ask anyone who’s learned the hard way: a cooking timer shouldn’t require instructions. This 60-minute timer from Joseph Joseph can be set with a single twist – just turn to the desired duration and the top clearly displays the remaining time. $19
4 Mypressi Twist
For those who need to make espresso on the go, Mypressi Twist is the answer. Using a standard culinary gas cartridge, it applies 135 psi to ground coffee and a little hot water to produce a fresh cup. $149
5 Fryrkat by Bodum
Some of the most important cooking doesn’t take place in the kitchen. For the barbecuer on your list, this compact charcoal-fueled cooker comes in red, orange, black and lime green. $218
6 BBQ Gift Set from Le Creuset
No barbecue would be complete without this iconic brand‘s matching set of cherry-red serving tray and barbecue jar – in handsome enamelled cast iron – complete with basting brush and extra-long handled silicone-tipped brush to keep hands clear of the flames. $95
