Buy This: Three things that will establish you as the world’s best gift giver

Ready for a little splurge at the holidays? We’ve got three gift ideas for you.

Greek culinary gift box from Pano I. Karatassos
Pano I. Karatassos earned his chops in the culinary world by working with his father, Pano Karatassos, founder of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, and gained appreciation for his heritage as he watched his Greek grandmother prepare traditional foods. As executive chef of Kyma, he creates modern Greek dishes using ingredients he’s sourced from across Greece, and now those ingredients are available to us through, Chef Pano, his signature line of olives, honey and olive oil. For our readers, he’s created a gift box that contains two jars of olives (purple olives from Kalamata and green olives from Chalkidiki), two jars of honey (forest honey from Mount Olympus and wild thyme honey from the Aegean Islands), a big bottle of his organic extra virgin olive oil from Crete and a copy of his new cookbook, “Modern Greek Cooking.” You could enjoy this box without ever cooking a thing, just nibbling on olives and drizzling honey and olive oil over great bread while reading through the book, but imagine what you could do it you put these ingredients to work in your own kitchen.
