Kitchen Arts and Pottery: A New Foodie Stop
There is a new little foodie shop in Greenville, and this quaint little shop offers more than your average cocoa mix and bottled pasta sauce. Kitchen Arts and Pottery celebrates the art of a chef by making unique ingredients and accompaniments available to the average cook. You will find gourmet items such as rendered duck fat, the key ingredient in confit de canard, succulent duck leg cured and poached in its own fat usually glazed with citrus sauce. Chef and owner Elizabeth Bardsley has been making delicious dishes for the diners at Northampton Wines and is now spreading her wings and talent to share some culinary hospitality with local cooks, foodies and fellow chefs. This small cozy shop opened just a few weeks ago and carries items such as German and English influenced kitchen art, beautiful antler cutlery and nifty but traditional kitchen tools. Elizabeth has meticulously chosen her products from responsible producers who use environmentally conscious processes. Not only is the merchandise chosen carefully, even the tables and shelves are refurbished and refinished creating and eclectic atmosphere.
I walk through the store as Liz carefully explains why she has chosen each individual product and where it is made. I am then given ideas on how to incorporate these items into that evenings dinner or perhaps the next day’s wine paring.
