Working with a bunch of good cooks has its perks — like recipe sharing, restaurant recommendations, and new food ideas to try. Most importantly, however, is the solid advice of what is worth buying. Our Culinary Staff is full of experience and knowledge, and would love to share it with you. We have filled our shelves with some of our tried-and-true favorites. Here are just a couple of highlights.

Scanpan Cookware
Scanpan’s unique manufacturing process creates the strongest and highest performing nonstick cookware available on the market today. Made from recycled and environmentally friendly material they are guaranteed not to warp and are dishwasher safe.

Wüsthof Knives
With 200 years of experience, Wüsthoff is a family-owned business that has been making knives of the highest quality that are hard to beat. Our staff loves them and their consistent top ratings speak for themselves. We would love to help you find the perfect knife that fits you. Drop in, and we will get you chopping to find the best knife for your needs.

Boos Cutting Boards
John Boos is the number one supplier of cutting boards in the restaurant industry, and we are excited to have these available on our shelves! Our Culinary Staff picked out four of their most home friendly sizes which will bring years of enjoyment and beauty to your kitchen.


Founded in 1971 by John Ulam, an American metallurgist, the All-Clad company is consistently rated highest by professional chefs world wide. All-Clad was the first cookware company to use bonded (clad) construction by layering different metals into one for superior heat retention and control. The Culinary Center’s Staff loves them for their lifetime warranty and everyday reliable performance.

If you haven’t been to our newly remodeled Culinary Center, come in and take a look around. We have stocked our shelves with our staff’s top choices in everything “that cooks.”
