I’ve recently been semi-obsessed with this haut-chocolatier out of Chicago. Regarded as one of the very best chocolatiers in North America – founder Katrina Markoff apprenticed under Ferran Adria of El Bulli – yep the one that scooped up the worlds best restaurant year in and out until their closure.
The mad scientist wizardry that Adria was famed for clearly shines through in Markoff’s own work. The flavor profiles are off the chart. Check out the current “Uzume” collection (pictured) a Spring only special that infuses a range of unique Japanese flavors into swoon worthy truffles. I mean check out these wild combinations:
- Organic wakaya ginger + freshly grated wasabi + ceremonial matcha
- Hateruma brown sugar + 5-year aged purple potato vinegar + purple potatoes
- Cherry blossom + sakura leaves + anko white bean + dragon fruit + white poppy seed
- Umeboshi plum + wild banana + red ginger
- Kokuto black sugar caramel with double fermented shoyu
While such elaborate concoctions don’t come cheap – moms worth it right? Check them out here – if you make a purchase we get a small referral fee too.
For something closer to home, what about Romina Rasmussen’s downtown ode to her globe trotting travels. Grab something from Les Madeleines dessert case and I guarantee you will put a smile on mom’s face. The picture kouing aman are the house specialty, a Northern French specialty pastry that takes the lamination of sugar and butter to extreme levels.
Sitka Salmon Shares
I pretty much get all my seafood these days from this boutique fishery CSA out of Alaska. The product is absolutely impeccable and pristine. Salmon, sablefish, lingcod and much more – all beautiful and flash frozen for perfect quality. Alaskan state law mandates no farmed fisheries, which guarantees everything is wild caught and sustainable. Use code GSLC for $25 off a seafood share and we get a referral fee too.
Maven Oak Creative
If a picture speaks a thousand words, I should just shut up now right? The beautiful charcuterie boards from Maven Oak Creative are jaw droppingly pretty and adept for any celebration – including mom. Boards come in a variety of sizes, from solo platters to grand affairs, and are delivered right to your door.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
