Cookshop Plus, located at 977 Farmington Avenue, is the newest venture of Australian natives: Terry & Joanne Ryan and James & Samantha Hines. The family also operates Cookshop Plus Bowral, which is located south of Sydney. They offer a wide range of products in their new location, from everyday kitchen gadgets to high end items to select, unique Australian products – such as Hutwoods Candles, which are handmade in Sydney, Australia.
In addition to bringing unique items from their native continent, the family are committed to sourcing locally within the community, and they are proud to stock their in-store coffee bar with Neat Coffee and pastries from the Hartford Baking Company.
From gadgets, to cookware, bakeware, to bar accessories, and small appliances such mixers, slow cookies, coffee machines and food, Cookshop Plus has all of the kitchen essentials you need. They stock a range of brands including KitchenAid, Le Creuset, Cuisinart, Breville, Oxo, Zyliss, and Nordicware, just to name a few. They also stock a range of other products, to ensure they have a wide-spread price point for everyone.
These Hutwoods soy-based candles from the Australian Outback are created by a small, family-run business in Sydney, Australia.
Cookshop Plus will offer regular store events and demonstrations, such as a Wusthof knife skills class, and product demonstrations of Swiss Diamond, Blendtec & Nordicware. They carry local Connecticut food products from Hillhome Country in Norfolk Connecticut. Check their Facebook page for current and upcoming events and food tastings.
