We are not your average run-of-the-mill, cookshop!
pssst - come and see us soon
A little bit about what makes us so unique
Because let's face it, we are!
Having built up a solid reputation and a loyal following of customers in our old home on the High Street Knaresborough, Cooking Fantastic relocated to our farm in Killinghall. We are now pleased to have everything under one umbrella at THE CUD LIFE at Spruisty Hall Farm.
We are still an ‘Aladdins Cave’ of fantastic quality and value cookware products not to mention fabulous gifts for every occasion. We still have everything from potato peelers and pans to pickling jars and pressure cookers!
Where possible products are sourced and made in the UK, including the ever-popular Silverwoods bakeware range and lots of cake decorating equipment. We still source new products all the time. We will still hire lots of things out from cake tins to fish poachers, offer honest advice and have lots of fun along the way.
Our Cooking Fantastic Products
We care deeply about what we sell and we also care about our customers. That's why we have this website.
We want to share the knowledge we've built up over the years and we take pride in the quality, provenance and cost of the items we sell.
And we have a LOT of items - just call in to see!
We are happy to, and in fact encourage you to, test out your chosen TEAPOT. Make sure it pours well – we have plenty of boiling water on tap!
Wherever possible, we will always try to buy British. For example, our extensive range of Alan Silverwood BAKEWARE
A wide range of Le Creuset ceramic and cast iron products
We sell AGA cast iron products, made in their Coalbrookdale foundry.
We love to swap RECIPES and give advice on how to get the best from your products, so you will be even happier with them.
We sell a range of salt and pepper grinders as well as pourers
We have a wide range of products for PRESERVES including jars, jam pots and jelly pans for all manner of home-made delicacies.·
We have a range of tableware products from Yorkshire based FAIRMONT AND MAIN, Arctic White and AFC
We offer WISH LISTS. These are like wedding lists, but for everyone! Whether for a birthday, Christmas, housewarming, anniversary or any other special occasion we can keep a wish list of your favourite items and whenever friends or family (eg Mother in Law) come in, we can help them to choose exactly what YOU want!
EVERYTHING you could possibly need for cooking and baking your favourite festive recipes.
We sell two ranges of cutlery. Both are sold as individual items rather than complete sets. That way, you can add new items and replace missing ones (where DO all those missing spoons go?) as and when you need them. We always keep these items in stock.
Harley & Muse
Knife blocks usually come with at least 6 knives, when in reality most people only use 2 or 3 - it seems far better sense to buy the best you can of the knives that you will use.
We stock three full ranges:
Kuhn Rikon - Bright colours at a budget price without compromising quality
Veritable Sabatier - The originals with lifetime guarantees and still made in France
Robert Welch - multi-award winning kitchen knives.
Everyone has a different MUST HAVE for their kitchen so we just sell LOADS of them!
We have a great selection of the ever-popular POLISH POTTERY from teapots to plates, mugs to jugs.
Paper, silicon, minis, bun tins and everything you need for cakes and buns
Pestle & Mortar
Many sizes and shapes - wood, granite and pottery. Choose the best ones for your needs.
On balance, weighing things up, we reckon we offer a great selection of SCALES from KitchenCraft and others.
A choice of crockery for the ever important afternoon tea.
We have a large selection of pans including Stellar, Judge and Le Creuset in a variety of sizes and shapes. These little copper pans are perfect for individual servings!
Everything you need to make wonderful pasta including ravioli cutters, drying racks and parmesan graters
We sell a range of ready meals in our freezer. From our own kitchen, we sell our lovely soups and our AWARD WINNING Apple Pies! We also sell meals from Simply Suppers and pies and sausages Kendalls butchers in Pately Bridge.
