    Tunisian Tagine

    Hand-painted Tunisian Tagine This stunning azure-and-white pot is specifically made for cooking North African tagine, a spiced vegetable or meat braise, but it would be a shame to keep this earthenware pot in the cupboard. Your giftee can use this oven-to-table dish for any slow-cooked recipe, for couscous or even as a handsome cover for dessert. Available at williams-sonoma.com. $49.95.

    Takumi white soy sauce

    Takumi White Soy Sauce Japanophiles will freak for this rare, traditional soy sauce. Although not quite white, the golden-hued liquid is made with a greater proportion of wheat than the traditional dark variety. The lighter, less viscous sauce is best paired with more delicate foods, like sashimi, seafood dishes, vegetables and clear soups. Available at deananddeluca.com. 12oz $23.

    Red Boat Fish Sauce

    Red Boat First-Press Fish Sauce Move over, olive oil: This "extra-virgin" Vietnamese soy sauce uses only the first-press juices of black anchovies. Unlike commercial bottles that bump up umami with wheat proteins and soy, this caramel-colored sauce is made from salted, fermented fish and aged for at least one year in wood barrels. Available at markethallfoods.com. 250ml $7.
