As you step into Cooks Emporium on Main Street you will find their slogan “Kitchenware for Creative Cooking” completely fits the stores’ personality.
Owner Margaret Junkhan has been in business since 1979. Together with store manager Vicky Flaws, the pair has created a wonderful atmosphere for bakers, chefs, and cooking enthusiasts alike. “We make it our goal to find and sell quality kitchenware, that is creative, unique, and made to last,” said Flaws.
Within the store you will find everything you need for a day spent in the kitchen. They carry everything from mixing bowls, aprons, blenders, bread baking machines to glassware in brands such as All-Clad, Henckels, Calphalon, and Le Creuset. No matter what you are looking for, Cooks Emporium is more than happy to help get you what you need.
But creative kitchenware is not the only thing they have to offer. On Saturday mornings at 10am, through their doors, you will find yourself walking into a weekly cooking class. “We have professionals, and cooking enthusiasts come in to teach classes for anywhere from 6-40 people,” said Flaws. It is $5 per class, which includes a professional demonstration, taste testing, a copy of a recipe, and a store discount. If you attend five classes, you get the sixth one free.
When asked about her favorite part of being on Main Street Flaws replied, “I like the quaintness, and the repetition of customers who you develop relationships with.” When you love what you do, it shows and this little shop on Main Street is passionate about cooking. Make sure to stop on in to Cooks Emporium, and check it out!
