Leslie at AT:SF has covered Cookin' before, and the comments reflect what we've read elsewhere: Some think it's overpriced, and the owner is unpleasant. (Our own Faith offered a link to some shopping tips from Heidi at 101 Cookbooks, which is worth a read.)
Well, we had a lovely, albeit short, visit. We happily rummaged through piles of vintage Le Creuset dishes in colors you never see in retail stores, and the man who took our money couldn't have been nicer.
Our friend wanted to turn the old tins (top) into centerpieces filled with flowers for her kitchen. Overall, this would be a great place to buy a gift for someone who appreciates old European kitchen goodies- and that includes yourself.
Tell us your opinions of Cookin'. What do you buy?
