Ready, steady, cook

The Cookshop has a superb range of varied stock, everything for the kitchen but the kitchen sink!

Nigel Bourne is not just one of the nicest people you could meet, he’s also a successful businessman, a keen supporter of local events and a great ambassador for Rye.

It’s no wonder therefore that his business, Rye Cookshop Ltd continues to flourish. It seems only yesterday that Nigel opened the doors at 95 High Street but believe it or not the shop has just celebrated its third year of trading, yet another success story for the town so happy birthday Nigel and many congratulations.

If you have never had the pleasure, take time out to go and visit his shop at 95 High Street, it’s an Aladdin’s cave of all things kitchenalia.

The shelves are groaning with a huge selection of kitchenwares with something for everyone.

If you are looking for that unusual but useful gift for a wedding or celebration then the chances are Nigel will have it in stock. If on the other hand you are a budding Paul Hollywood or Mary Berry there is a fine selection of pans, knives, crockery, appliances and utensils to suit everyone’s culinary abilities and budget.

In the short time that the cookshop has been open Nigel has worked hard to offer what people want and to make the shopping experience one to remember. As well as being nominated for various awards, his following on social media is testimony to his knowledge of the business, the excellent service he provides and the range of stock he has available.

With Christmas just around the corner (sorry to mention it!) if you are looking for something different for that special someone who has everything then fear not, pop into the cookshop and speak to Nigel or call him on 01797 458324. If he hasn’t got exactly what you want, the chances are he can get it and in good time for the big day.

  1. This is a great little shop for local people
    And visitors alike
    A great selection of cookware and knives.
    This is where you can get something special.

    • I hope Mr Briss is not suggesting the Rye Cookshop has any similarity to the other “local shop for local people” in Royston Vasey.
