The Cook’s Warehouse celebrates 20th Holiday Season

 

The Cook’s Warehouse (www.cookswarehouse.com) is having a truly grand celebration to mark its 20th holiday season.

On Friday night, Nov. 14 from 6 – 8pm, in its Midtown-Ansley Mall flagship store, Mary S. Moore of The Cook’s Warehouse and Harald Wüsthof of Ed.Wüsthof Dreizackwerk KG, Solingen, Germany, will welcome guests to a fun-packed evening.

And it’s a Customer Appreciation Event with extra-special deals on store items and Wüsthof knives and product giveaways.

Guests will learn knife-making history and see knife skills demonstrations and nosh on luscious nibblies and libations. They can also sneak-preview holiday gifts to see what’s new and check out the season’s hot-selling items in cookware.

And all while supporting the Atlanta Community Food Bank – proceeds from the product giveaways will benefit ACFB.

Harald Wüsthof of Ed.Wüsthof Dreizackwerk, Solingen, Germany, is a seventh-generation scion of the family that operates the factory and a knife expert of the iconic brand.

Wüsthof is a family business, which was founded in 1814 in Solingen, Germany. Today, its forged knives bearing the famous Trident (“Dreizack”) logo are manufactured at three production plants in Solingen, which has become known as the “City of Blades.”

Mary S. Moore got the idea for The Cook’s Warehouse after buying a crepe pan at Bridge Kitchenware in New York City with Chef Scott Peacock. She had her epiphany there: “This is it, I’m going to have a store like this in Atlanta!” And so began the story of The Cook’s Warehouse.

Now, 20 holiday celebrations later, it has grown from two employees in one store to 80+ associates in four retail locations and a rapidly growing online business. And it operates the largest avocational cooking school in the Southeast with more than 800 cooking classes each year.

The Cook’s Warehouse (www.cookswarehouse.com) is greater Atlanta’s premier gourmet cookware store and cooking school with four stores in the Midtown, Decatur and Brookhaven areas in the city and the East Cobb County area of the suburbs. It offers more than 15,000 products for the kitchen and operates the largest avocational cooking school in the Southeast conducting more than 800 classes yearly, often taught by local chefs, and has a large web-based delivery-by-post site.

Owned and operated by founder Mary S. Moore, The Cook’s Warehouse also retails high-end appliances; conducts private cooking classes for unique celebrations and corporate events, and is a pro bono partner with virtually every major cooking event and gourmet association in Atlanta.

The Cook’s Warehouse truly gives you “Every Excuse to Cook.”

Big Green Egg Smoking - Credit Danny Kim

It’s a grill, it’s a smoker, it’s an oven and it’s the most versatile cooker ever. And local: Big Green Egg is based in Tucker, GA. The East Cobb store of The Cook’s Warehouse (www.cookswarehouse.com) will hold a Big Green Egg grill celebration from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 29.

There will be grilling demonstrations while Chef and the Fatman record their James Beard-nominated radio show to help celebrate this top-of-the-line ultimate grill. Whole Foods Market is donating Brasstown Beef and Thompson Farms Pork to cook on the Egg as well as two $25 gift cards to be included in the giveaways.

Special appearance, 12 to 2 p.m.: Jessie Lysiak, from Social Circle, GA, and on the current season of MasterChef, will be part of the Chef and the Fatman show. No doubt she’ll be cooking something on an Egg and pleased to have a meet’n’greet with fans of the show.

Springer Mountain Farms will be on site with its chicken, low-stress, humanely grown birds that are steroid-, hormone- and antibiotic-free. Money-saving coupons will be given to the public for Springer Mountain products.

The Big Green Egg celebration will include giveaways and special pricing on cookware inside the store.

Widely acclaimed as the original American-designed ceramic cooker, the Big Green Egg was derived from an ancient clay cooking device known as a “kamado.” Originally a clay vessel with a lid, today’s Egg is a modern ceramic marvel known for producing amazing culinary results for novice and experts alike for more than 30 years.

The Cook’s Warehouse is located in Merchant’s Walk shopping  enter next to Whole Foods, 1311 Johnson Ferry Road, Suite 568, Marietta 30068. More info: 770-565-8005 or www.cookswarehouse.com.
