Top 6 luxurious foodie gifts to give in Louisville in 2022

The Anova precision oven ($489) is “one of the most exciting at-home kitchen gadgets that I’ve seen hit the market in the past few years … which is an at-home counter-top combi steam oven,” says Ryan Rogers of Eternal Optimist Hospitality (bar Vetti, Feast BBQ, Royals Hot Chicken). “It’s certainly a splurge item and really only for those hardcore home cooks that enjoy the ability to dial in precise temperatures with a steam-injected convection oven, but it is a fraction of the price of a commercial combi-oven.”

Order food from restaurants all over the country with Goldbelly

Kane’s Donuts traditional donuts on Goldbelly.

Will travel for food? You don’t have to, thanks to Goldbelly, the online purveyor of some of the best restaurants in the country. Essentially, Goldbelly is an online marketplace for food products where customers can order products from restaurants, bakeries, delis, etc., and have them shipped across the United States.

I got turned on to the service during COVID when I had a meal from Chicago’s famed chef Stephanie Izard of Girl & the Goat, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

“Goldbelly really allows people to bring the flavors of world-class restaurants into their homes,” says Rogers. “They don’t have every mom-and-pop place in America, but they have a pretty incredible selection of the greatest hits of some great restaurants. It’s an opportunity for people to share places without the flight and hotel expenses associated with physically going there or having to stand in line for four-plus hours like I’ve done both times I’ve visited Franklin BBQ in Austin, Texas.”
