I just bought this set of bowls to fill out my food storage setup, and they've been great. Each holds about two cups, which is just right for most leftovers, as well as small batches of salsa, sauces, and prepped ingredients. The lids are BPA-free and everything is dishwasher-safe.
I am a rather vertically-challenged cook, and I've been getting tired of dragging a chair out of the dining room into the kitchen when I need to something down from a high cupboard. Enter this stool, which folds up and fits perfectly between the cabinets and the fridge. It's a short cook's best friend.
This is a fine, fine bar tool — designed by Chris Gallagher, a woodworker and sculptor. He decided to improve on the basic muddler and he turned out this lovely and effective design. It has since been used by many top bartenders and mixologists, and although it sells for a hefty price it is a great addition to the serious bartender's gear.
Where there's a drink, there's a story. This little book, An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails, by Orr Shtuhl and Elizabeth Graeber, tells tales of cocktails and their heyday, with beautiful handdrawn illustrations and recipes from the classic margarita to the Blood & Sand. A lovely little book for the bar cart.
These bamboo skewers were inspired by antique hairpins, and they are designed to be used over and over — not discarded. They are best for cold foods (not grilling). Wouldn't they be beautiful holding a skewered caprese salad? Also check out the shop's mini bamboo skewers.
Each double pronged skewer is 9.5" by 1.5", and each prong is approximately 1/8" thick.
Tie dyed napkins? Brilliant! I'm really loving the colors of these, not to mention the practicality. One more little stain isn't going to be noticed in this riot of colors. OK, so they're probably not for Thanksgiving dinner, but they're perfect for the lunchbox.
