Foodperson opens unabashed exchange division

December 3rd, 2008 · 4 Comments · Books about food, Tools

As I’ve been working to develop a new website (less personal, more helpful, more commercial), I put together an “aStore,” which designates various products and lets readers order products I recommend via Amazon. It occurred to me that there was no reason (except for my general reluctance to appear to be a shill) not to show readers all my faves too.

So, if you’re interested in buying things through Amazon that I recommend, go to Foodperson Suggests and take a look around. I’ve also put a link in the sidebar on the right so that you can go straight to that page from anywhere on There are pages for equipment, essential tools, books and gadgets. I’ll probably add products now and then as they occur to me. If you’re interested and you have questions about any of them, drop me a note (see the Contact page), and I’ll get back to you.

Just so you know, I generally prefer local merchants, but when you’re shipping a gift somewhere or you can’t find what you want locally, online retailers are a huge help. That link again is Foodperson Suggests.

Thanks for your tolerance of this pitch, and thanks especially for your readership.

Addendum: I was going to call this post the “shameless commerce division” in honor of the Car Talk guys, but I see they’ve registered Shameless Commerce as their trademark. Pity.

    What a great idea! I love recommendations for kitchen stuff, because you never really know until you try it, and by then it’s too late to return it!

    Hey, thanks for the encouragement, Meryl! If there’s anything in particular that you wonder about, just ask!

    I was checking out your recommendations and am thinking about getting a couple. I also noticed that you recommended a garlic peeler (rubber tube like). I saw one used on an old PBS cooking show years ago and later,when getting frustrated trying to peel some garlic, I tried a similar substitute – with great success.

    I had 2 of those round rubber jar grippers that I got as giveaways at a bank or somewhere. One is more flexible with a bit of texture. I used it to place my garlic clove in, then roll up. Once rolled, you just roll it back and forth with a little pressure against the counter top. And voila! Peeled garlic.

    Same principal for $0!

    Hey, cool, Susan. Thanks for checking it out. And you’re very clever/resourceful with your jar grippers. Indeed, same idea.
