Delicious Locally Crafted Food & Drink Gifts for Friends and Hosts

"It seems a bit fuddy-duddy to say "hostess gift," but many of us will be attending holiday parties in the coming weeks and no one wants to show up empty handed. So here, a few delicious food (and drink) ideas for what to bring….

Now that's a thoughtful gift."

…amongst them, this wintry jewel: a sticky coconut cake… with its sliver-fine layers of cake, dense cream cheese and coconut milk icing, topped with shredded sweet coconut.

It’s like a little holiday dusting, even if there’s no snow on the ground.

You can read the full story in the printed December edition of Seattle Magazine, or online right here.
