The Brooklyn Kitchen in Williamsburg is the kind of place you go to pick up one thing and then end up leaving with five. Or six. Or 15. The full-service kitchen store has everything you’d ever need to make your kitchen a place of joy and wonder, including a selection of cookbooks, tableware, knives, baking supplies, artisan products from around the city and the world, and a small but excellent grocery section. The store is also home two test kitchens where guest chefs teach a wide array of classes from knife skills to piemaking to Vietnamese street food. If you can’t find gifts for the cooks on your list who have it all, just go for a gift certificate for a class–there’s sure to be something coming up soon that intrigues. However, we think you’re sure to find something in the suggestions below, or in-store, that will surprise and delight.
