Started in 1993, Cooking Enthusiast originally mailed catalogs under the name "Professional Cutlery Direct" and educated the consumer about high-end kitchen cutlery and knives. Today the breadth of the assortment spans all areas including gourmet food and ingredients, kitchen decor and accessories, cookware and cook's tools. We search the world to discover those special treasures that appeal to the passionate cook in all of us - whether you are a trained professional or a casual home chef.

The entire Cooking Enthusiast operation is run out of our location on the Connecticut shoreline. When you call our customer service department, you are speaking to a person who has been trained regarding each product we sell and has first-hand knowledge of how the item works. Most of our customer service people are also our biggest customers.
