Review of A Cook's Companion in New York

Jennifer Baron is exactly how you’d imagine a Wisconsin native and kitchenware store owner to be. That is, friendly, knowledgeable, loquacious, and perhaps above all, practical. Except Baron’s store is located in Brooklyn Heights. She told us that the idea for A Cook’s Companion was sparked in the 1990s when she had to take the subway into Manhattan just to get a spring-form pan. To solve that dilemma, she opened A Cook’s Companion in 1997 and never looked back. From Japanese knives and Italian espresso makers to handcrafted pepper mills, the shop has the ingredients to make your culinary dreams a reality. Baron knows her products and insists that people come to her store and speak with her kitchen-savvy staff. “Cooking isn’t as complicated as people often make it out to be,” she says. “We want to give customers the information to make the right decisions.” Baron’s idealism is reflected in the shop’s website where you can only view their products, not purchase them.
