on 01 December 2010

Among the food-focused items in out 2010 Holiday Gift Guide we've selected ten stand-outs including some highlights from the Cool Hunting for Gap Pop Up shop—where we're having an event dedicated to this favorite topic. For those in NYC, stop by the store from 12-2pm Saturday, 4 December 2011 to snap up products launching that day—including a chocolate bar collaboration we facilitated between Brooklyn's Mast Brothers and Berkley's June Taylor as well the deliciously addictive Happy Goat caramel sauce infused with Macallan whisky—and meet your favorite cookbook author while sampling goods from local artisans like Brooklyn Salsa Company.
