Shopping at La Grande Epicerie is an exquisite experience. A recent 18-month makeover has left the store sparkling new with a redesign that echoes the grands magasins of Paris. Customers navigate through different sections – la Boulangerie, la Boucherie, la Crémerie, la Poissonnerie – engaging the métiers for their expert advice.
Le Luxe section is the most swoon-worthy with caviar and truffle aplenty. Even the security guards are clad in elegant black suits…
On my recent visit, I beelined to la Crémerie to check out the butter section. Amazing. More to come.

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
