So much of life happens in the kitchen. When we have the right cookware, prepping equipment and accents, it heightens the whole experience of making food with loved ones. Jan Faust Dane has taken her years of foodie passion – from endeavors in the kitchen to writing about independent restaurants and boutiques with her eat.shop city guides – and opened her own store, Stock Culinary Goods, on Hope Street. Going into her third year, Jan continues to offer the best in kitchen supplies, with top-notch customer service and carefully selected goods. This business also specializes in setting up a thoughtful wedding gift registry, where you can come in and check off items for your dream kitchen.
For those planning a wedding this year, you know there are a lot of stresses involved in orchestrating that perfect day. Registering your kitchen items at Stock Culinary Goods is one way to relieve some of the burden of choice, as Jan and her staff have thoroughly tested everything in the store, whether it’s the treasured French casserole or the high-utility garlic press. We love carrying small batch and local products,” Jan says. “But sometimes you just need a whisk, and not necessarily a bespoke one. So we also carry lots of well-known major brands, too. Because we’ve had a lot of lines through here, we’re pretty confident now that these kind of important essentials we carry are well designed and built to last.”
A walk around her store offers an array of accents and tabletop pieces to complement the cooking and prep products. “We have a great assortment of tea towels and aprons; anything that relates to food,” Jan explains. “Lots of stuff surrounding coffee and tea, plus barware.” Stock is oriented to the chef of any skill level. Jan says, “We speak to the amateur cook, the mid-range cook, the professional and, of course, the beginner.”
Jan mentions some of the fun essentials that enhance the cooking experience: a great electric kettle, microplanes, salt pigs, a quality wooden salad bowl and carbon steel skillets. Come to Stock Culinary Goods today and outfit your kitchen so you’ll truly experience the joy of cooking.
