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. Signature Round Dutch Oven, Le Creuset Flame, 5.5 quart “A right of passage for any adult—chef or not—is to own their very own Le Creuset piece! The Dutch Oven is an absolute staple of any kitchen and can last for generations. This all-purpose cookware is perfect for creating stews, cooking vegetables or grains, and one-pot meals. I love to braise meat in my Dutch …

The Coolest Geode Finds to Add to Your Wedding Registry

The hottest registry decor this season are gifts that incorporate geodes, crystals, and natural minerals. These items are colorful, fun, and add a more organic feel to any home. Geodes in particular are very popular, because they are durable and can stand up to wear and tear, even though they look quite delicate and fragile. Adding in a jewel toned color, or a natural element, provides balance among other more modern, stark pieces and will make your newlywed home pop long after the honeymoon!

Best Barware – Registry 101

You’re already known for your great taste in wine and extensive repertoire of cocktails, so why not have the best barware in town, too? Your wedding registry is the perfect reason to freshen up your selection of cups, glasses, tumblers and all things “party” because this year, you have tons to celebrate. Let’s do it. What do I need?  We’ll start with the basics. Wine (red and white), beer, champagne, and cocktail glasses are all first steps to getting your collection started. And please, get rid of those lingering red plastic cups. How many of each do I get?  If you’re thinking 8-12, you’re almost right. We suggest adding a few more for insurance purposes. Accidents happen (especially when drinks are involved) so to be sure to you can always keep a full set around the house, we err on the side of caution and always add some more. That seems like a lot! Don’t we know it. It takes first-timers a bit to get used to ordering in bulk like this, especially since most of us are living in cramped starter …

Spring Cleaning

How does Spring Cleaning differ than just regular cleaning? We’re talking about an all-hands-on-deck organization overhaul where we break old habits, make new systems, disinfect and totally start fresh. To us, Spring Cleaning is less about daily chores and more about setting the tone for a seamless transition to summer so you know exactly where your shorts are and have the perfect spot to store your winter coat when the cold weather breaks. Having said that, we also encourage a major scrub down of all your corners, shelves and in-between spaces (you know the ones that we on-purpose forget to clean all year long). When is the official start date of Spring Cleaning? ASAP or sooner! Spring Cleaning can be whenever you want. Maybe you already started after being majority inspired by the KonMari method or maybe you’re waiting for a rainy day so you don’t abandon your mission for the sunshine. But one thing is for sure – the sooner you start, the better you will feel. Should I put cleaning supplies on my wedding registry? Absolutely. Zola is …
