Calgary Christmas Present Ideas [moved from Canada board]

  • 5

Dear Calgary Chowhounds, Last Christmas you were all very helpful in helping find a Christmas present for my Calgary-based sister-in-law. Now I need to ask for an update one year later. We're based in Boston so don't know what's happening there foodwise. Would you be able to recommend some local sources for a good food- or wine-related Chrismas gift? About $100 Canadian. Would prefer not to do a restaurant gift certificate if possible but rather a food basket or gift cert to a gourmet or wine shop, possibly for a class or wine tasting. Thanks in advance and happy holidays.

  1. They don't list gift certs at their website, but any chowhound anywhere would love one from The Cookbook Company Cooks, which is much more than a cookbook store. I'm sure they'd at least let you pay for your SIL's cooking class.

    1. I've given certificates for The CookBook Company Cooks workshops. I made arrangements by phone.

      1. The CookBook Company is great! Please also note that Metrovino is in the same space if you also want to give some wine as a gift.

        1. Thanks so much for the ideas. The CookBook Company and Metrovino sound ideal.

          1. I forgot to mention if you decide to shop at Metrovino ask to speak to Richard Harvey, the owner...he is very knowledgeable about wine.

            Cheers
