I always am on the lookout for antique kitchen gadgets, Japanese knives, and interesting cookbooks. But really, l get excited when I get anything shiny and new.

A new sushi knife is always nice and can last for a decades if taken care of properly. I always like preparing fish from around the world, but a nice bottle of wine is always a good idea.

I would love a microplane. They're great for citrus, which imparts such a wonderful flavor to turkey and vegetable dishes, among other things. I also love to use microplanes for grating Parmesan reggiano for kale salad. I mostly have what I need to cook -- I'm pretty old-school!

I'd like a couple of new knives. I always like getting good olive oil, specialty salts, or a wedge of cheese that I've never tasted.

I always love getting fresh, seasonal vegetables this time of year from the Valley's farmers markets. A black kale salad will be on my holiday menu this year along with butternut squash and Brussels sprouts. Making dishes with fresh veggies will cost a bit more but you'll make up for it in flavor -- and, it's simply better for you.
