New Specialty Gourmet Store Opens in Kona
The Spoon Shop, a new specialty retailer catering to gourmet chefs and culinary enthusiasts, is open in Kailua-Kona.
Owned by residents Tracy Ackerman and Preston Crowl, The Spoon Shop is located in the former Gourmet Chefs Supply in the Old Industrial Area.
The couple is busily stocking their shelves with a host of new items like the award-winning Garlic Twist and popular gadgets like the Aerolatte milk frother.
Offering quality name-brand products from the US and abroad, The Spoon Shop sells cookwear by Scanpan, LeCreuset, Lodge and All-Clad. Featured cutlery lines include Wusthof, Global, Chun and Forschner/Victorinox.
“We have new inventory arriving weekly,” says Ackerman, who enjoys baking and is known for her cream pies and “cake pops.”
Some of the inventory is geared for perfecting culinary creations with ease; others are for holiday gift-giving, like the scientific, yet fun, molecular gastronomy kit.
The new store offers a selection of bar ware, fun napkins, aprons and chef wear, novelty items like Hawaiian-themed cutting boards, and numerous gadgets and gizmos.
The Spoon Shop has a separate room full of essentials for baking and candy making, complete with a wide variety of cookie cutters and candy molds.
The owners will also be expanding the store’s grilling and barbecue selections for the outdoor chef.
The Spoon Shop is located near Pacific Island Fitness in the Old Industrial Area at 74-5583 Luhia St., Suite #B-14.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more information call The Spoon Shop at 329-2433.
