From the Kitchen to the Table with Emile Henry, Made in France

Emile Henry, made in France, has been selling in our store since we opened our doors in 1998. We chose these high quality oven to table pieces because they are beautiful, functional, practical, durable and long lasting. The staff and I use them in our own kitchens day to day and we are proud to give them as gifts throughout the year and at Christmas.

Knife Skills

Knife Skills: Save the Blade!

Keep your knives sharp by saving the blade. This means that when you cut your food on your cutting surface resist the urge to use the knife blade as a scoop as this quickly dulls the blade and can be dangerous to your fingers.
