It’s time once again to shift our collective focus from turkey-eating to gift-giving. And this year, we’ve got a lot of things we want to give. So many, in fact, we can’t fit them all into one post. Instead, we’re rolling them out over several days. Tuesday we gave you our picks for the best regional specialties out there, but today we went to the experts. We asked the likes of the best bartender, pasta-maker, sushi chef, and beer-brewer we know what gifts they’d give. Some of their answers surprised us, but you can rest assured that each one of the following picks comes with an emphatic, authoritative stamp of approval.
