5 Kitchen Tools Real Chefs Register For

Back at our Los Angeles Zola Townhouse, we had the pleasure of working with Pace Webb, executive chef and owner of Taste of Pace, her catering company. She’s one of the most sought-after chefs on the LA food scene and after she cooked for our events, we could see why. She makes the type of food that is so pretty, but you’re not-at-all scared to eat it because you know it will be insanely delicious. And it was! Then we started chatting with her and we became full-fledged fans. We asked our new friend to tell us what real chefs like herself would register for. Here are her top five kitchen must-haves.

Wedding Registry Hacks

How to get exactly what you want for your wedding is one of the frequently-asked questions from our Zola couples and we completely understand why. It’s not everyday we get to ask for whatever we want from our nearest and dearest (and coworkers, family friends, Great Aunts we’ve only met once, the list goes on). So here’s our expert advice on how to check gifts off the perfect wedding registry. Ask and You Shall Receive Don’t be shy! First-timers may feel a bit of pressure to register for what they think they’re supposed to register for, instead of registering for what they actually want.

It takes few extra minutes, but it is totally worth it …
