Society Fair Irish Breakfast Easter Basket

Dublin-born chef Cathal Armstrong recently opened culinary emporium Society Fair in Alexandria, Virginia, near his much-lauded Restaurant Eve. Society Fair's baskets are designed to provide all the Emerald Isle essentials for a perfect Irish Easter morning, including Hogan's Irish Scone Mix, Folláin raspberry jam, Jacob's Afternoon Tea biscuits, Bewley's Dublin Morning Irish tea, and assorted chocolates. This might be the best Irish treasure trove since the proverbial pot of gold. (Society Fair, $75 plus shipping; 703-683-3247) less

Treat your favorite food lover to one of these culinary-themed Easter gifts, including chocolates, cheese, and luxurious pantry essentials

he hunt for the perfect Easter basket is on, but it needn't make a basket case out of you. We turned to some of our favorite culinary talents-an award-winning chef, several top chocolatiers, and a niche cheesemonger-for Easter gift ideas to satisfy a wide range of palates and wallets. For chocoholics, we selected a menagerie of adorable hand-decorated chocolate bunnies, decadent dark chocolate eggs, and an oversize chocolate mushroom. For the more savory-inclined, we recommend a selection of farmstead cheeses, homemade scone ingredients, and pantry staples straight from the Mediterranean.


This year, swap cellophane grass and plastic eggs for one or more of these sweets and savories. They're guaranteed to give the Easter Bunny a run for his money.
