The kitchen is where we spend the most time with loved ones, therefore the room we make the most cherished memories in: it’s where little ones first learn to cook. Where we peal, mix, pour, sauté, (once in a blue moon, burn) or broil weeknight dinners. Where one might seek comforting midnight snack. It’s even where friends and family flock during holiday meals, no matter how elegant the table setting. Perhaps all of this happens in the kitchen because it’s an inherently welcoming room that includes mouth-watering aromas, a chipped childhood mug, freshly baked treats, a favourite counter spot to lean against… One of the key ingredients that makes a kitchen so wonderful is its cookware: an integral part of a kitchen’s identity, these utensils and dishes should be as practical as they are aesthetically pleasing. Measure your ingredients with Mason Cash’s stoneware tools, bake a cake with Nordic Ware’s intricate pans or bring any savoury recipe, from the most basic to the most elaborate, to life with Le Creuset’s iconic cookware. Food nourishes the body as well as the soul– So let’s make sure we have the very best tools to cook it right.
