Holiday Gift Guide For The Adventurer 2014

Rugged finds for the seasoned culinary explorer

Not every cooking (or eating) endeavor happens at home.

And for those brave ones who escape the confines of the kitchen and venture into the great outdoors, there's also more to the open-air lifestyle than stale jerky and cans of beans.

Send them on their way with Eric Ripert-approved spices (you never know when there will be a seasoning emergency) and a hand-soldered pure copper flask for swigs on the go. And if you really want to go all out, splurge on a leather-covered cooler that's equal parts fancy and functional.

Because being miles away from home is no excuse for a lackluster meal.
