It's no surprise that the powerful little sage leaf has become a popular cocktail component, and now there's a whole new way to experiment with this savory-herbaceous botanical: SAGE, from the genuises at Art in the Age, producers of the already-beloved ROOT and SNAP, is a spirit that's like a gin at heart - without the requisite juniper.
From pans to panettone, staff members and contributors of the Dining section share a variety of their favorite holiday gifts for food lovers.
We're such fans of Art int he Age of Mechanical Reproduction (@ArtintheAge) as I love that they bring a number of old time alcohol mixes back to the modern age! One of their newest products is SAGE which is a fabulous blend of Dandelion, Thyme, Rosemary and Fennel. We've been mixing away at Kitten Lounge and we love to taste this when it's with citrus based beverages or in warm tea!
We recently tried out the Mavea Elemaris XL Water Filtration Pitcher for our water drinking needs. Living in San Francisco we have great water, which is some what negated by the pipes in our 1920s era building. This pitcher from Germany helps get rid of some that bad stuff with a state of the art filter that requires no pre-soaking and last about 90 days. Along with it’s European design and 5 color options, the Mavea Elemaris XL features nifty hole in the lid that closes when the chamber is full and a digital meter to tell you when to replace the filter. Ours went to zero in roughly 90 days.
Everyone has a few cooking connoisseurs and food enthusiasts to buy holiday gifts for this month. Let's be honest: trying to figure out what crazy gadget to get them this year is tough, considering that there's a good chance they already own it. While scanning the interwebs and pavements of our lovely city, I came across some spots to check out if you're shopping for a foodie.
