The owners of The Cook's Cupboard, Elspeth Macgregor and Glenn Conlan, are so personable and knowledgable about the products in their store and are happy to answer any questions you may have. If you'll recall, I wrote about the Paltita Avocado Oil? This is the store I purchased it in the very first time.
Can you picture when you were a kid picking out your penny candy!?
The display area here has high end oils, vinegars, pickles, pastas,
sauces, chutneys, crackers, bbq sauces....it's endless and amazing!
and it is filled with The Village Kitchen frozen prepared culinary entrees...
a fabulous idea for all the cottagers who arrive in
Southampton and don't want to cook, but still want
a gourmet meal!
most, this back portion consisting of two rooms
is right up there on my faves! Beautiful le creuset cookware,
dinner settings, linens, small high end cooking appliances, and gorgeous
cutting boards! (I bought one a few years back for Dan...handmade out of Larch in Canada)
I picked up some coconut oil, which the owners told me was fabulous on popcorn!
Definitely will be trying that!
Also, some jambalya seasoning and souvlaki seasoning. I also nabbed
a little something for our grandbaby on the way....but shhhhh...I can't tell you what...cuz it's a secret!
All I'll say is they were made in France!
It's an all round happy experience when you enter this store and the owners are so sweet, taking time to converse and share parts of their lives with their patrons.
If only they could move their store down the street from me!
