Ruhlman and Reichl are doing it, and I’m sure everyone’s wondering, “hey, what’s Jimmy’s take on the must have items for the gourmand in my life?”

Well, I have ten can’t-miss items that will make your favorite cook, blogger, or booze hound the hippest kid on the block. Or something like that.

#1 – Wines of France / Metro Map – This map is really quite clever, and informative.

#2 – Emile Erwin Waxed Canvas and Leather Apron – For the man who wants to look like a tough metallurgist whilst flipping pancakes

#3 – Stanley Classic Steel Vacuum Bottle – Perfect for coffee or soup breaks when you’re not busy building the American dream with your bare hands

#4 – Caw Caw Creek Country Prosciutto – (12-22lbs) – I want ham around EVERY MEAL this holiday season.

#5 – Hot Calabrian Chiles – The same fiery peppers I love at Antico and Fuoco. Why not order a kilo of them?

#6 – Cortez Bottarga – An Italian specialty, this producer of salt cured and sun dried mullet roe in Florida is the only producer of domestic bottarga, as far as I can tell. Shave over pasta for a kick of fishy funkalicious umami.

#7 – MOMA spherical ice cube trays – The fancier you make your drinks, the less people think you have a problem.

#8 – Dirty and Rowdy wine t-shirts – This season’s must have apparel item.

#9 – Rancho Gordo Heirloom bean gift pack – I don’t even bother with canned beans anymore. They tasting like…nothing. These will turn your bean (and GI) world upside down!

#10 – Now that your pantry is chock full of beans, cook ‘em up right in a clay bean pot from Puebla, Mexico.
