Laila Hardman and Annie Gilbert came up with a singular vision for a culinary boutique, where shelves lined with gourmet coffees, cookbooks, and European cookware and gadgets open up into a demonstration kitchen that accommodates groups of up to 20 people. There, experienced instructors take culinary influences from around the globe and show students how to whip them up with healthy and fresh ingredients. In addition to a running packed schedule of specialty classes, they also cater to private groups for date nights or bachelorette parties.

When a chef reaches for a stick of butter, the staff at Mountain Town Olive Oil mourns. It's a missed opportunity to cook with extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), a much healthier and more flavorful option. That's why the EVOO connoisseurs give cooks a wide range of butter alternatives in the form of specialty olive oils. Many are tinged with unusual flavors: cayenne, basil, and, for the staunch traditionalist, even butter. The same is true of gourmet and balsamic vinegars—try the black cherry, cinnamon pear, or dark chocolate vinegars for proof.
