Chow Bella's Gift Guide for the Food Geek
Subscription to Lucky Peach
Don't just give the gift of food porn this year. Give the gift of the hardest-core food porn ever produced. But it's not all just eye candy, Lucky Peach is like 60's era Playboy for food. Sure, everyone is here for the sweet bao on bao action but you can't help but get intrigued by some of these articles between the pretty pictures. It's like Saveur if Saveur wasn't afraid to drop an f-bomb in the service of describing just how good something tastes. The most recent issue has an in-depth piece on Anthony Bourdain, a beginner's guide to the world of dim sum and even some food-centric fiction.
Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Cutter
A great geek gift should be both practical and awesome. Bizarrely, this Trekkie friendly pizza cutter is both. Not only is it a sweet looking replica of the Original Series Enterprise but it's also one hell of a pizza cutter. When the description says it has a "laser etched stainless steel blade" they aren't joking around. The cutting blade is shockingly sharp and capable of parting even the thickest of pizzas with ease. It's a gimmick gift without the gimmick!
