As the winter weather pushes us inside, our kitchens inevitably heat up with holiday parties and dinners done indoors. We were thrilled to work with our friends at New York Mouth—hands down the best purveyors of handmade, artisanal culinary products—on a collection of our favorite food finds. Here's a taste of what you'll find, along with a selection of kitchen tools to get cooking from our 2012 Gift Guide.
