"This place is outstanding and the offerings couldn't be better. Cheryl Zinni has created a place for anyone that has a love for cooking to come and get the best products as well as learn from some great chefs at her cooking classes. Her newsletter is one I read from start to finish every time it comes out. If you love cooking, this is the place!"

If you live anywhere near Albany (even a couple of hours away) or Clifton Park - Spoon and Whisk should be in your radar and on your Must-Visitplaces.

This is a wonderful gift that the proprietor(Cheryl) and store-manager (David Dial) share with the Capital Region and North Country as a whole.

I had agreed to teach a class to give back to the community without having ever visited the store. Charlie and my arrival a half hour before the class was to begin was every bit of motivation I could have asked for.

The store is bright, well stocked with just about everything and then some that a home cook or even a professional might ever want to have at their side to cook beautifully tasty and inspiring food.

With this store even if a couple of hours away from you - you have no excuses to not have a well stocked kitchen in which to cook beautiful food for yourself, family and friends.

A roster of visiting chefs share their knowledge and passion for anyone wanting a night out alone or with a loved one or family. Classes are Demo-Style which means you get to learn, eat and be entertained.

David Dial - the store manager is one of the finest people I have ever met and arrived at a class to work along with. Meticulous, charming, witty, gracious and kind. Organized so perfectly for the class that he made me, the teacher look good and seem smart.

Cheryl and David - Many thanks for inviting me to teach at your store. It was an honor I am most grateful to have had. 

We shall be back and often.

"Everyone is helpful and friendly. They make you feel so welcome. They have everything you need and more!! The cooking classes are great too!!"

Heather M.

"I have always been able to find everything I am looking for. I very much enjoy the classes, even if it's just to see what other cooks are doing. Please don't stop! I especially love the classes where we are all at the bar. It's just so up close and personal. I have loved every one of the classes and put the info to good use!"

"This store provides, not only, all possible equipment or gadgets you may need or desire but an incredibly knowledgeable staff who can guide you through your purchase as well."

Susan H.

"The Classic Sandwich class last night was excellent. Chef Ben made it informative and fun. I like the new style of sitting around the cook table much more than the auditorium style of rows of chairs. You can see much better and I think the class interaction is better. Like sitting around the kitchen table with friends."

Sue K.

"Even when we don't have something on our shopping list, there are always new products that are useful in the kitchen (especially if you are gadget people like us!) Great selection, prices... fab selection of cookbooks, and excellent, friendly and knowledgeable staff always! Highly recommend to those who cook, would like to learn, and for the perfect gift for most any occasion! Our fave place to shop for kitchen/cookware items!"

Terry S.

"It is always a pleasure to shop with my girls. I know when I go there if I leave with nothing? which is rare for me. The visit is always a great time. Rock on Spoon & Whisk keep the good stuff coming!"

Sharon Z.
