HOLIDAY SHOPPING AT
THE COOKING GALLERY
Not to cause panic, but did you realize it’s only two weeks
before Christmas? While online shopping has left our lives
changed forever, there’s something special and festive about
Christmas shopping at an actual store (where you actually
have to put on clothes), with a crowd of other shoppers.
I hate shopping in general, but Christmas is that one time
I admittedly enjoy it. I actually like shopping for that one
time of the year when I think about what to get multitude
of people something special, clever, and useful. And while
I hardly ever set foot at a mall anymore, thanks to the
convenience offered by shopping from the coziness of
your couch, I feel differently about specialty stores where
shopping is actually a pleasant experience, not merely a chore.
The Cooking Gallery is a new niche cooking store in Reno
that just opened its doors this fall. The original store has been a
fixture in Truckee for many years, and Suzanne Preaseau, ½ of
the sibling tandem that run the Truckee and now the Reno store,
is excited to be in the thick of the rapidly changing Reno food scene.
I’m sure you have at least one gourmand or cook in your list
(that, plus yourself), and I would recommend you consider
shopping local and buying from this well-stocked cooking
supply store. Yes, they have dishes and all imaginable baking
and cooking implements, but they also carry specialty items
for the beer lovers, the coffee junkies, or the party hostess.
The Cooking Gallery is located at 606 W. Plumb Lane, Reno, NV.
