For chefs and wanna-be chefs, this emporium is a dangerous place to be without a sensible wingman or woman to hold the credit card. Downstairs is floor to ceiling with cooking vessels and utensils from individual ramekins and Chasseur French-ovens (the Rolls Royce of cast iron cookware) to pots that you could probably fit a whole cow in, hoofs and all. There are colour-coded boards for professional kitchens; designer chopping blocks for homes, and a veritable murder of knives (which we assume is the collective term). Head upstairs past the sleek Kitchen Aid mix masters and coffee machines and you’ll find another cavern filled with every takeaway container, swizzle stick, candle holder and wine glass ever made.
