Our Top 15 Kitchen Finds from Oprah's Favorite Things of 2020
This year's list specifically celebrates Black-owned businesses, and the entrepreneurs and creators behind them. In fact, 50 of the 72 items on the list are from Black-owned or Black-led businesses.
Seeing that this is Allrecipes, our eyes went straight to the food and kitchen gifts, and as usual Oprah did not disappoint. These are our 15 favorite kitchen and food gifts from Oprah's list, nearly all of which are available on Amazon.
Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey
It's no secret Oprah has good taste. I mean, she featured the same premium whiskey brand on her list that we did on our guide to gifts that support Black-owned businesses. This line of premium Tennessee whiskey is inspired by Nathan "Nearest" Green, the first African-American master distiller on record.
