Book Gifts for Foodies at Tuttle Publishing

Book Gifts for Foodies at Tuttle Publishing

When I have someone on my list that is hard to shop for but I know loves to cook, my go-to is a foodie gift basket. I will find unique foods at small business shops and always include a utensil or two and a cookbook. There are so many fantastic book gifts for Foodies at Tuttle Publishing and I will show you a few below.

These Bento books are a hit! When it comes to recipe books I judge by the amount and quality of photos because I am a visual learner so when trying a new recipe I like step by step and clear finishing photos so I know exactly what the end result should become. Ultimate Bento: Healthy, Delicious and Affordable: 85 Mix-and-Match Bento Box Recipes is a hardcover making it great for gifting.

This book is by the hosts of the popular NHK World cooking show Bento Expo, Marc Matsumoto and Maki Ogawa. It brings practical techniques, step-by-step instructions, and useful tips for 85 recipes that can be mixed-and-matched for 25 nutritionally balanced bento box lunches. Available on Amazon.

Another great Bento recipe book is called Real Bento: Fresh and Easy Lunchbox Recipes from a Japanese Working Mom. This book brings a collection of family-friendly, easy and inexpensive recipes used and honed over many years by Japanese mom Kanae Inoue. Available on Amazon.

I love my Instant Pot and chances are the real Foodie in your life has one too. This Instant Pot Asian Pressure Cooker Meals book has fast, fresh and affordable meal ideas to make right in the pressure cooker.

Cook more than 60 Asian dishes at home using healthy, inexpensive ingredients and your Instant Pot! I find that many recipes in here are a great way to use up veggies that need to get used up from my fridge. Available on Amazon.

The Paleo Italian Cooking: Authentic Italian Gluten-Free Family Recipes is full of delicious recipes that are Italian inspired for many diet needs. Find 100 authentic and easy-to-follow Italian recipes that allow you to eat a healthy Paleo diet. Available on Amazon.

Make sure to head over to Tuttle Publishing to easily find books for all genres from children, food and more. Then you can shop at your favorite book retailer for the titles you find!

Book Review: Success Skills for High School, College, and Career, Rev Ed.

2020 has been a rough year for students. All the more reason to take a moment and focus on skill building. Success Skills for High School, College, and Career is now revised and ready to help students plan for success.

What makes Success Skills for High School, College, and Career, Rev Ed. a great read and perfect gift to include for the Holidays?

There are 8 chapters focusing first on Getting to Know Yourself and ending with Embracing Mentoring. By reading through this book you get to know your strengths and weaknesses. You are inspired to properly challenge yourself in various ways for your career path. As you move through the chapters you learn how to communicate and form business relationships. Then tackle what it means today to look and act in a professional way all while balancing your personal life.

Less of a book full of inspiring quotes and motivation, it is more of a road map to cover all you can think of when getting to and staying in your goal profession and making it work for you beyond the road you took getting there.

I have read a few success books that told me ‘aim high’ or ‘take notes…” but I have never been told in a success book that College students can visit their school’s student center on advice on how to dress for an interview and even help you acquire such clothing. This makes a great gift for students with plenty of skills and advice for 2020 and beyond!
