Julia? Just a DVD

The elves at Sur La Table must be getting into the eggnog — the celebrity gift sets put together this year to separate fools from money are as mismatched as rum and tonic. Ina’s includes a brownie mix and a mixer to beat the hell out of the batter, while Molto’s actually packages restrained Francaise salt and olive oil with his blustery Italiano cookbook. Yummo’s comes with a crappy knife rather than the can opener “her” approach would require, but I guess the recipient could always use it to kill him/herself on opening this autographed lump of coal.
