For those that have been caught up in Korea-mania over the the last 12 months, you can't go wrong with this Korean Bibimbap set (£33.50), which includes a traditional dolsot stone bowl, ingredients and recipe card for the spicy rice dish.

For the more patient folk, the ProQ Frontier Smoker (£195) is ideal for BBQ-ing from scratch - perhaps even to present an slow-cooked BBQ turkey on Christmas day. If you think they might be up for smoking their own Boxing Day smoked salmon, the ProQ Cold Smoke Generator (£34.95), and ProQ Eco Smoker (£24.95) - the chamber to hold the cold smoke - are great gifts. Or if they prefer those smoky flavours without having to step outdoors, the Cameron Smoker (£59) and Cameron Mini Smoker (£39) will hot smoke food in just 20 to 30 minutes on a gas or electric hob.
For the Chilli Fanatic

Or present them with the Mexican Chilli Selection (£11), a great guide to discovering the difference between the smoky-sweetness of a guajillo, and the citrus heat of a piquin.
For the Nipponophile
These gifts are perfect for anyone who's obsessed with Japanese food and culture and who longs to make a pilgrimage to the Land of the Rising Sun - whether it's perfecting the art of sushi with a Deluxe Sushi Box Kit (£27.50), or learning the fundamentals of Japanese cookery with the Authentic Japanese Cooking Kit (£42). Before long they'll be sipping on sake from traditional cups with the Deluxe Sakura Sake Set (£40) or performing their own Japanese tea ceremony with the Shizen Blue Japanese Teapot & Teacup Set (£75).
For the Molecular Chef
The molecular chef loves to get serious with technology - be it a Superfast Thermapen Thermometer (£48) or the Twist Sous Vide Circulator (£120) or even the complete Deluxe Sous Vide Supreme Starter Set (£435) - they'll be playing around with their new gastro gadget all Christmas.
