Kitchen Provisions to open store at Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross
King’s Cross announces that British culinary product shop Kitchen Provisions is to launch in Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross today. A premium retail concept, which re-imagines the traditional kitchen supplies store, Kitchen Provisions sell only the finest kitchen products beautifully crafted.
Launched five years ago as a hand-forged knives business Kitchen Provisions is now owned and managed by Helen Symonds, Tom Saunders and Jake Knibbs, and boasts both celebrated chefs and keen home cooks as loyal customers. With an existing site in Stoke Newington, N16, the new Coal Drops Yard store will be their most exciting venture yet; hosting interactive foodie classes and featuring an incredible range of food-related products.
Celebrating small and emerging craftspeople, Kitchen Provisions stocks primarily Japanese and UK-made knives – all of which are produced in small batches following frequent meetings with artisans.
As industry experts the team have an incredibly in-depth and personalised knowledge about the metal composition, knife capability and maintenance of each of the models and travel to Japan several times a year to meet with the craftsmen and select the best knives and finishes.
Whilst the core business of the company remains its hand-forged knives, a range of artisanal foods from London-based makers will also be offered at the Coal Drops Yard store. These will include: jams, chutneys, spreads and toast toppers, chilli sauces and Ketchups. In addition to these, Kitchen Provisions will stock a range of ceramics sourced from London-based designer makers.
Helen Symonds, Founder of Kitchen Provisions says; “We are thrilled to be locating our newest shop at Coal Drops Yard and have great plans for the space, including a greater range of knife sharpening and skills classes, collaborations with London designer makers, and an even more comprehensive range of Chilli sauces and other delicious edibles from London producers. The shop will allow us to showcase chef knives from Japanese and UK makers alongside ceramics and vintage kitchenalia.”
Located within a reimagined set of historic buildings and arches directly adjacent to Granary Square and Regent’s Canal, Coal Drops Yard houses over fifty stores from a unique mix of established and emerging brands, along with cafés, bars, top independent restaurants and new public spaces.
