Our Philosophy

I’ve always loved visiting kitchen shops, and whether I was traveling and scoping out the local gourmet offerings, on a mission to buy a culinary necessity or just simply wishing, I often dreamt of opening my own store. After years of plotting, planning, saving and scribbling, I officially made the leap and in May of 2008, Capital Kitchen opened its doors for business.

At Capital Kitchen, we’re committed to offering what we feel is the best of everything, products that are kitchen-tested in my own home. At my house, the kitchen is the center of the universe. It serves as laboratory, gathering place, studio and sanctuary, and whether I’m rolling biscuits, making sauce or opening a bottle of wine, the right tools are important to me. I want my equipment to be functional and beautiful. I want it to be well designed, properly made and durable. I want gadgets that feel right in my hand, dishtowels that absorb water, knives that are perfectly balanced and a pan that helps make my chicken stew even better. (And sometimes I want it to come in a crazy color.)

I truly love using the products that we offer at Capital Kitchen and I hope you will too!
