Whisk Opens in Cary

Whisk

Cary, NC – Whisk, a store focused on gourmet kitchenware and culinary instruction, opened its doors to customers today. If cooking’s your thing, you will like this store. Very much.

Whisk – Gourmet Kitchenware

Whisk, located in Waverly Place, is chock full of splendid and exotic kitchenware.

It’s a treat for the eyes and I spent a happy hour wandering the aisles.

In addition to Le Creuset and other other top brands you may recognize, Whisk had an extensive stock of items you won’t find in Macy’s or Williams Sonoma. Staub had some very sturdy looking cookware. And Emile Henry featured casseroles specifically designed to cook tajines and risotto.

Guys will enjoy Whisk, even if they’re not into cooking. The store has an eclectic collection of barware (like the Black & Tan turtle) plus a gourmet grilinbg section. There’s even a stovetop smoker, fellas!

Owners Dan and Diana Saklad were on hand. They’d been living the corporate life in St. Louis and decided to pursue their dream of entrepreneurship. “How did you find Cary?” I asked.

“We Googled ‘Best Towns to Live in America,'” Dan said.

“So you’ve read CaryCitizen,” I speculated. They both laughed and said they had. Ah, the power of search.
