The Spoon Shop, a new specialty retailer catering to gourmet chefs and culinary enthusiasts, is open.
Owned by residents Tracy Ackerman and Preston Crowl, The Spoon Shop is located in the former Gourmet Chefs Supply in the Old Industrial Area and stocks staples for creating and enjoying food.
The couple is busily stocking the shelves with a host of new items — such as the award-winning Garlic Twist or must-haves like the Aerolatte milk frother. Some of the inventory is geared for perfecting culinary creations with ease; others are for holiday gift-giving, like the scientific, yet fun, Molecular Gastronomy Kit.
Find a selection of bar ware, fun napkins, aprons and Chef Wear, novelty items like Hawaiian-themed cutting boards and numerous gadgets and gizmos. The Spoon Shop will be expanding its grilling and barbecue selections for the outdoor chef.
Offering quality, name brand products from the USA and abroad, The Spoon Shop sells cookwear by Scanpan, LeCreuset, Lodge and All-Clad. Featured cutlery lines include Wusthof, Global, Chun and Forschner/Victorinox. “We have new inventory arriving weekly,” says Ackerman, who enjoys baking and is known for her cream pies and “cake pops.”
The Spoon Shop has a separate room full of essentials for baking and candy making, complete with a wide variety of cookie cutters and candy molds. Located near Pacific Island Fitness at 74-5583 Luhia St. #B-14, The Spoon Shop is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays. Watch for new product updates on Facebook.
