How is it that you can drive down a street dozens of times over a few year period and completely miss the most amazing cooking store. What a wonderful surprise it was to find The Gourmet Warehouse on Hastings.
I stumbled across this store when trying to find a place to buy some lavender for my green tea ice cream. With only an hour before the store closed I raced there from Burnaby to get my lavender and knew I was in trouble the minute I walked in the door.
With limited time to browse I had to walk a little faster than I would have liked, just getting a taste of all the amazing things for sale in this store. It took everything I had not to start buying all the fun tools and serving dishes, sprices and sauces, and all sizes and shapes of baking pans. I limited my purchases to lavender, a butter dish we have desperately been needing, cupcake wrappers, and a zester.
I can’t wait to return to this store with all the time in the world to browse and pick up fun new ingredients for dishes I have yet to create.
