FOOD GIFT LOVE: 100 Recipes to Make, Wrap, & Share


In Food Gift Love, Maggie Battista, a food-gift guru and founder of Eat Boutique, celebrates her expertise in and enthusiasm for small-batch, hand-crafted foods. This book will inspire cooks, food-lovers, and DIY fans to be year-round food gifters.

Here’s a little taste of what’s in the book:

Bring something unforgettable and delicious to your next potluck or dinner party. Give something made with love to those you love in times of joy or sadness. Say hello, thank you, congratulation, or happy holidays with something fabulous and flavorful. A food gift is always well-received and never goes out of style.





Maggie is the founder/director of Eat Boutique, an award-winning online boutique and story-driven recipe site that’s the go-to resource for food gifts. Along with selling an ever-changing collection of food gifts, hosting pop-up boutiques and hand-packing small batch food gifts for private clients, Maggie also wrote her first-ever cookbook featuring more than 100 recipes to make, wrap and share. Food Gift Love was released by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. She’s written for Style Me Pretty, Food52, and Snippet & Ink and connected millions building online communities like TripAdvisor. You can follow her homemade food gift adventures on Instagram and pre-order the cookbook now.


“Food Gift Love is a tasty collection of sweet treats and delicious bites that make perfect gifts, although you’ll be tempted to make an extra batch . . . to keep for yourself!” —David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen

“Food Gift Love is full of recipes I want to cook and ideas I want to borrow, but most of all, it’s full of heart. Maggie’s spirit of generosity is contagious! This little book makes me want to be a better friend.”—Molly Wizenberg, author of Delancey and A Homemade Life

“As warm and gracious as Maggie herself, Food Gift Love is the handbook for anyone looking for unique and delicious ways to a welcome a new neighbor, comfort a freshly minted mama, or simply tell a friend that you care.”—Marisa McClellan, author of Preserving by the Pint and Food in Jars
