In my quest to find and bring you all good things related to food in the Delaware River region, I decided to change course from my normal restaurant hidden gems and found myself at the Cookery Ware Shop in Lahaska / Peddler’s Village.
I “discovered” this hidden gem a few years back when I was looking for some cast iron pans. What I found was an amazing collection of essential items for chefs of all levels, from the beginner to the seasoned professional.
In this day of instant Internet gratification, it’s so easy to just click a button and place an order that I often forget about local retail stores. But when it comes to items for my home, there’s nothing like putting my hands on them. If I’m buying a knife for potentially hundreds of dollars, I want to feel the curves of its handle and feel its heft. I want to see its exact shape and size. Do I need a 6″ or 8″ blade? I need to handle it to see what’s right – something I’m not going to get from the Internet. For items like these that I’ll use constantly, I want them to be “just right.” That’s where the Cookery Ware store comes in.
