Holiday gifts from your favorite authors

Jenny has already provided her comprehensive lists of holiday gifts for cooks and cookbook lovers. In addition, we have compiled a list featuring holiday hampers and more from popular chefs and cookbook authors around the world. Many of these sites offer special discounts for first-time buyers or have sales going on now just in time for the holidays. 

These gifts would be a delight for any food or cookbook lover to unwrap. If you know of any sites that we’ve missed, let us know in the comments and we’ll add them to the post.
