While other women like to shop for clothes or shoes, I am drawn to all things "kitchen"....so a store devoted entirely to cooking items is right up my alley.
Right now, The Good Cooking Store is having a Grand Opening Event – it runs until February 12, so if you hurry, you’ll be there for special sales, demonstrations and tastings.
The store is brightly lit, not too big, and they have packed great quality and products into every inch. I ran into two friends from Terre Hill! They were as delighted as I was with the selection.
It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with one of the most expensive items in the store – this wonderful Staub enamel cookware. No, I didn't get the roaster, but it's already on my Christmas list!
There are shiny new pans, containers, a nice selection of microplanes and bowls. There was a great salsa bowl shaped like a red chile,
wonderful stacking bowls that would solve anyone's challenge for lack of shelf space,
a banana peel that doubles as a handle protector,
and the cutest cocktail picks shaped like nails.
I'm a gadget gal and loved seeing the display.
You just never know when you'll need a banana slicer
or an avocado slicer!
There's a whole line of cute stuff for cooking with kids.

Pretty darn impressive. And right in our own backyard. YAY for Lancaster!
I sent more guests to the store this weekend. I think they’ll agree, and perhaps Martha would too, “It’s a good thing”.
