3 Stocking Stuffers for Local Foodies

Perfect presents for your local-food-loving pals.

’Tis the season to spoil friends and family, and there’s no better way than filling a stocking with a well-chosen collection of Minnesota-made goodies—we’ve rounded up three of the latest picks for local foodies that are sure to make the season a little bit brighter.

Tying a ribbon around a jar of Bee Line Honey is a sweet way to say happy holidays. Harvested from the five beehives atop the roof of St. Paul’s Union Depot, the honey is sweet and light, a little spicy but not too floral. Perfect drizzled atop butter-slathered biscuits for a hearty holiday breakfast.

Spread some extra holiday cheer with the B.T. McElrath Changemaker Chocolate Bar. B.T. McElrath Chocolatier and Dunn Brothers Coffee teamed up to create an espresso-bean-studded chocolate bar to benefit the American Refugee Committee (the charity gets 20% of every bar sold), and the results are nothing short of delectable.

For the cook who can’t get enough of his or her favorite restaurant dishes, wrap up a copy of Stephanie Meyer’s new cookbook, Twin Cities Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the City of Lakes to the Capital City. Featuring recipes from Brasa, the Bachelor Farmer, Corner Table, and more, it’s packed with recipes designed to impress but not too complicated to execute at home—so you might just reap the benefits of your own generosity, too!
