ANYONE passing through Watlington will have noticed the colourful splash of K is for kitchen on the corner of the High Street and Shirburn Street.
If you like cooking, eating and drinking, you will have been tempted to stop and look.
From washable Swedish dishcloths to cast iron tagines from Shropshire, K is for kitchen is cuisine-heaven: it also sells stylish classic-modern kitchens and is the place to check out the latest baby AGA — the City 60.
Stopping at Watlington is easy: the car park is free and the High Street beyond K is for kitchen is a hideaway gem. Showcasing almost every style of English vernacular architecture (from medieval timbers to Georgian facades), the once bustling High Street now holds a clutch of individual independent shops, including a first-class butcher (Calnan Bros), an award-winning chocolatier (Tutu Delicious) and a café-delicatessen (The Granary) that has a cheese selection to rival that of France.
Cookery events, such as pasta-making workshops, have also drawn a small crowd to Watlington — and on warmer days those in the know come for authentic Italian ice-cream (salted caramel is a favourite).
With so much going on, K is for kitchen is on the move. Our lovely corner will become another shop while we move along the High Street to number 14 (opposite the butcher’s).
More room for our working kitchen, more space for our lovely cookware and a great location right in the heart of Watlington’s beautiful High Street.
