Here's where you'll find a collection of great gifts for people who love to cook - especially southern style.
When it comes to being Southern food lovers we sort of consider ourselves to be experts. Seriously, it's not uncommon for us to start a conversation like this .... "We're throwing a couple of butts on the egg this weekend."
If that resonates with you (even if it makes you wonder what the heck we're talking about) then you're in the right place. Here at Biscuits and Burlap we've got great gift ideas for the Southern Foodie in your life.
Several of the ideas here are inexpensive items that you could put together and create your own surprise basket.
Most of these gifts are from Amazon (with a few from small business thrown in), so you're ordering with confidence. And, we haven't chosen anything from Amazon that doesn't have a 4-star or better rating. We've done the homework for you.
Cast Iron Cookware
First up is cast iron cookware. We love it and we have several recipes that we prefer to cook in it. Our southern style cornbread dressing starts out with cornbread made in an iron skillet. For breakfast or brunch there's old fashioned Tomato Gravy and it's best made in an iron skillet and served over biscuits.
Collard Greens Dip is cheesy southern goodness at its best and makes a great presentation in a small iron skillet.

Great Gift Ideas for the Bourbon Lover
This guide includes bourbons for every budget and other gift ideas for enjoying that bourbon. If you have a bourbon lover in your life (or a wannabe), this is the place to get your holiday gift giving planned.
Newly added is a guide for Bourbon Gifts for Dad. You're sure to find something he'll love!
And then there are Pecans and Biscuits
We personally own the pecan sheller highlighted below and love it. It makes short work of that task if you start with whole pecans like we do.
Or, how about treat them to something made with love by a great Etsy shop? You'll be supporting small business and you'll make the brownie points with your loved one!
And biscuit cutters - what Southern Foodie kitchen would be complete without a set?
Seasonings, Coffee and More...
Hands down, our favorite seasoning mix with a Southern twist is Tony Chachere. We've used it in several recipes on Biscuits and Burlap and it's a key ingredient in one of our most popular posts, Shrimp and Grits. Another favorite, Crab Cakes with a Cajun Cream Sauce has it in the sauce.
This sweet Georgia peach jam with a hint of caramel and salt would be the perfect addition to a gift basket. Of course, it's awesome on biscuits, but consider it for a charcuterie or cheese board too. Yum!
Southern Pecan Coffee is made in Tennessee and is another great way to support small businesses. You know they'll love it!
Books for the Southern Food Lover
Anybody who loves to cook is also going to love adding to their cookbook collection, so we've pulled together some that are great gift ideas. Some of these we own ourselves and love. There is something here for everyone.
The Gift of Southern Cooking: Recipes and Revelations from Two Great American Cooks by Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock
The Flavor Bible is more resource than cookbook, and it's not southern but we think no foodie's kitchen should be without one.
Last, but not least is an old favorite...
Homegrown Louisiana Cookin' by Justin Wilson
