I lived in Williamsburg for four years and was always a fan of Whisk, a local kitchen and cooking supply store on Bedford Avenue. Going there was such a treat and a splurge, and they managed to pack a ton into not-that-big of a space (so does my new love and neighbor, A Cook's Companion).
So in the spirit of Small Business Saturday (yes, I know that was weeks ago, but we can still shop local), I went through Whisk's web site and picked out a few favorites that I wouldn't hesitate to make space for in my kitchen.
Now that that's taken care of, I could use a serrated knife for slicing bread and tomatoes and other more delicate things, and a place to store these sharp, sharp things - like this wall-mounted knife strip.
I could keep going and going - their whole store is enchanting. Instead of linking to every item they sell, I'll stop here and promise a free cake to anyone who buys me that cake stand.
