8 Nights of Food Gifts: Olive Oil Offerings
For a slick Hanukkah gift, think oil. Sprayer and cruet images courtesy of Williams-Sonoma
Gift No. 2
What would Hanukkah be without oil? A very sad celebration of dry doughnuts, tasteless latkes and darkness, I’m sure.
This season, celebrate one of the eight days of light with the gift of oil — in three forms.
First, the oil sprayer ($24.95). This non-aerosol, stainless steel beauty, from Williams-Sonoma, is both eco- and waistline-friendly. It’s ideal for lightly lubricating latke pans and baking sheets.
You might also consider an oil cruet like this French porcelain one, also from Williams-Sonoma ($32.95). Since we have to keep the oil handy this time of year, why not encourage a loved one to replace that hopelessly greasy bottle with an attractive stovetop staple? It’s dishwasher safe, and the stainless steel nozzle helps control the pour.
Last, a high-quality oil can’t be underrated. Whole Foods offers an Israeli olive oil from Nazareth, sourced from olive trees grown without pesticides or fertilizers. Fabulous.
Any of these would make a great gift, but together they’re the perfect Hanukkah package.
