Wish List 2011: Huge Fucking Cheese Slicer

When I stayed in Copenhagen earlier this year, the hotel breakfast spread fucking rocked.

Soft boiled eggs (with adorable holders and spoons), 5 different dark, seed-crusted breads, cereals, granolas, 3 different types of yogurt-ish products (samoa, soured milk) DIY fresh-squeezed – and ultra pulpy – OJ and sliced (fancy!) meats.

But most of all, I couldn’t get enough of the cheese. It wasn’t just slices, or a wedge or shreds.

But cheese hooked into this almost torture-looking device that easily slices cheese fresh from the block. I had just as much fun using the contraption as trying the various types of wonderful cheeses available. So, someone either fly me back to Copenhagen’s Scandic Palace Hotel or find me one of these machines.

Giada De Laurentiis Suggests You Buy Her $99 14-Piece Knife Set

Raise your hand if you never want to hear the words “CYBER MONDAY” again? Holy crap. I scanned my emails yesterday and I bet every other one rolled in with a CYBER MONDAY deal. (Although I did indulge: NYT digital subscription.)

With these CYBER MONDAY specials come lists. Lots of lists from lots of famous people telling us to buy lots of crap. Take this gift guide from Giada De Laurentiis. She started a line with Target. The list is posted on Target’s blog, A Bullyseye View. Out of fifteen items De Laurentiis recommends, FOUR are from her own line.

Welcome to the spirit of giving.

ES Presents: Presents

Chanukah is early this year, starting on December 12 and lasting for eight days. There’s not too much time to shop for those abiding by the light of the menorah. So while all you Jesus-folk can procrastinate and scoop up last minute sales, those celebrating Chanukah need to hurry it up.

And I have a present for the grill master in your family. I super, super hate cleaning. And when there’s a way to make cleaning just slightly more entertaining, I’m all about it. When the dudes behind Grill Daddy sent me some press info and a sample, I couldn’t wait to clean that damn, dirty grill. Fine, I actually could wait. I made DAD GANSIE clean.

Here’s DAD GANSIE on the Grill Daddy.
