40 November 2014 Food ne Lemonbird Padron Peppers in the "Every- thing But The Cheese Gift Box." Seven years into her venture, Battista savors working with not only the food but also the people who craft it, hosting Eat Boutique market and dining events that allow attendees to meet the makers and sample their wares. Battista is also deep in the trenches of writing her own book about food gifts, titled Food Gift Love. Due out in October 2015, Food Gift Love will feature more than 100 recipes that teach readers how to make, wrap, and share homemade food gifts with loved ones, from potluck-style dinners to the fortified French orange apéritif wine, vin d'orange. "I think when people think of food gifts they think of a jar of jam or a jar of pickles… What I'm trying to do with the book is stretch people's understanding of what a food gift is," Battista says, "to bring out the food gifter that's already inside of you." Delicious Gifts Battista gets creative with her food offerings.
