Lancs cookshop adds specialist tabletop outlet

Dine at Home will be directly opposite the Ramsbottom cookshop, and is set to open for business in mid-March.

Sara Wilkins, a partner in The Cook’s Emporium along with her parents Roger and Stef, told that they had taken the three-year lease on the new premises “because I couldn’t do what I wanted to do in the Cook’s Emporium.

“The shop is smaller than the cookshop’s and on one level only, but I didn’t want a huge space,” she said.

In terms of tabletop, the cookshop sells only a small amount of terracotta oven-to-tableware. The new shop will extend the offer to tableware, glassware, cutlery and linens.

“It’s everything that doesn’t involve cooking,” said Wilkins.

Key brands include Denby, Fairmont & Main, Villeroy & Boch and Roy Kirkham, “who have all been very enthusiastic and exceptionally helpful”.

Wilkins added that a new full-time employee has already been recruited to run Dine at Home.
