Q&A with Kara Hansen, store owner

What’s your favorite thing to eat? 
There is nothing better than a perfectly grilled steak.

What’s your essential cooking tool to have in the kitchen?
A high quality non stick sauté pan. I have the ScanPan brand that we sell in the store and I love it.  I cook with my sauté pan almost every day!

How did you end up owning the store?

I was a home cook and I loved coming to the store as a customer. I’m a retired labor & delivery nurse/midwife and I was looking for a new adventure. I had befriended the store’s previous owners and one night, over a bottle of wine, they suggested I consider buying the store because they wanted to retire. I shadowed them for six months and decided it was a perfect fit for me!

Who are your Chef inspirations?

Ina Garten, the Barefood Contessa and of course, Julia Child.

What’s your favorite ingredient to cook with? 
I love anything with truffles!

Kitchen Products We Love


Airscape Containers

Airscape® Storage Containers come in stainless steel or ceramic.  These better-than-airtight storage containers force oxygen out of the canister, rather than trapping it in, using innovative inner lid technology. Airscape® is reusable & refillable, and is ideal for storing coffee, tea or just about anything else.


Jacquard Francais French Kitchen Towels

We know so many customers who collect these perfect kitchen towels so we had to feature them here.  We received a big new order of lots of different patterns.  These towels are so pretty and perfect for any kitchen.  These high quality Damask towels  are made of combed cotton and hold up very well in the wash.
