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.

Baking with Love: Kitchen Must-Haves from Molly Yeh

Looking to capture whimsical perfection and a bit of fairytale living? Follow in the footsteps of Molly Yeh. Molly is a food blogger, farmer’s wife, and a Zola bride! Oh, and she was professionally trained in percussion instruments at Juilliard. When we saw her blog we were a bit tortured; our mouths watered, and we were starved for the delicious food she pictured. We knew we had to ask her to build a collection around her registry picks because, let’s be honest, we could all learn a little something about kitchen equipment and accessories from a baker extraordinaire who moved from Brooklyn, NY to North Dakota in the name of love!
