Anything, Really, From La Vie Rustic
Over the years, Georgeanne Brennan has inspired culinary students both in Haute Provence, where she has long had a home, and in Northern California at her small farm (ditto). At her online store, La Vie Rustic, her exclusive goods range from Sel d’Agrume (citrus salt, made with the zest of her own blood oranges and Meyer lemons; $10) to a charming holiday sampler that’s a stellar house gift ($28), a potager set of seeds and maps for spring planting ($38), and hand-crafted earthenware from local artisans (from $45). If you’re a cook, Brennan will make you want to garden; if you’re a gardener, she’ll entice you into the kitchen. In other words, it’s hard to go wrong.
