15 Gifts That Will Blow Every Irish Foodie Away This Christmas


The whole world seems to be obsessed with food, and that is especially true at Christmas time. 

With that in mind and thinking of the very special foodie you need to buy for we thought we’d put together a list with some presents that will take their breath away and show how much you care. 

The only problem with shopping through this list is that you’ll probably want a couple of the things yourself. Nothing like a bit of self gifting at this time of year we say…

We want them all!

1. Make Amazing Bread – Firehouse Bakery Course

3. Global Chopping Knife

One of the most recognisable knife brands in the world. Unless you are buying for somebody incredibly special you’ll probably go for a single knife instead of a set. Not cheap but a present any foodie will savour
