If I had to pick just one kitchen store to shop at for the rest of my life, I don’t know what I’d do. But I do know Kitchenwitch in Jamaica Plain ranks right up there with the best. Tonight we drove over to JP for First Thursday, when all the shops are open late and live music can be heard coming from the parks and stores (and from a car — we saw an actual band playing from an antiquish car driving down Centre Street). The main purpose for our trip was to see Joanne Chang at Kitchenwitch, who was there signing copies of her amazing cookbook, “Flour: Spectacular Recipes from Boston’s Flour Bakery + Cafe.” We wandered around the store for a few minutes, and I think I’d like one — or two or three — of everything there.
Cookbooks, obviously. I can’t decide which Flour recipe to try first, but it seems the sticky sticky buns or homemade Pop-Tarts might be a good start.
Who doesn’t need a lobster cookie cutter? Seriously!
I can always find more uses for ramekins.
And, of course, a $1 item — the soap saver. This is not necessarily a kitchen item, but we’d been in dire need of a soap solution for our shower. Kitchenwitch saves the day!
