Home Cook Set
What better way to get a dinner invite: give your bestest chefy friend our very desirable Home Cook set. It includes some beautifully designed and highly practical items we doubt they’ve ever had the pleasure of before. Such as our kitchen scissors that perform a sharp list of functions beyond cutting, and our mushroom brush – the only way to dust down the fresh and wild fruits of the forager’s haul. Bet they don’t own trussing twine either - a must for roasting the bird. All wrapped in tissue and packed into one of our large and highly desirable vintage ex-museum archive boxes, making the Home Cook set a sure chicken dinner winner.
Prices start at £26 for the box only - make your choice by clicking in the box below. The completed boxed set as pictured is £86 and includes, from left to right:
Our A G Hendy & Co branded boxes will make your gift that extra special. Constructed from vulcanized cardboard with an internal aluminium frame and rivets for extra rigidity, they were originally made for a well-known central London museum in the 1950s to be used as archive boxes. Never used, they were recently discovered in a forgotten store room belonging to the museum. Once unpacked, the box offers further very useful storage solutions for today’s office and home.
Hand-forged, stainless steel and dishwasher safe, our all-purpose kitchen scissors are made for us in Sheffield and are an all-round winner. The offset handles provide a very comfortable grip and the curved blades extra strength, coupled with a notch for anchoring bones, when used as poultry shears. The micro-serrated blade will not blunt, adds extra grip and will swiftly cut through all meat, plastic, string and film. There's even a lever for prizing open cans, a flattened edge for tapping tin lids shut, and another notch for flipping off caps from bottles – and the handles can be used to grip and aid the opening of stubborn screw caps and resilient corks. No kitchen worth its salt should be without. Length 21.5cm
