Delizioso! Super-star chef Mario Batali cooks up one bene gift guide.

Hedley & Bennett's The Mario Batali apron, for my friends who like to give back: "It embodies the spirit of the Mario Batali Foundation and proceeds go to MBF, which ensures that children are well-read, well-fed and well-cared for."

Domori Chocolate Tasting Box: "For my sweet-toothed friends in different cities because everyone loves opening a big package to find chocolate goodies inside."

Acetia Dodi Balsamic Riserva Modena: "For my friends who cook at home. It's such a high quality balsamic at a very nice price point."

Camporelli Novara Cookie Tin: "For my sons to open as a late night snack on Christmas eve. Then I usually take the reusable holiday tin they come in to gift treats of my own creation!
Rosella Roi's extra virgin olive oil shampoo, for my sustainability-conscious health & safety director who oversees all of my restaurants."

Pastaio di Gragnano Candele Pasta: "For my friends in catering who love to entertain. The size of this product is a great conversation starter and it's delicious!"
