“Love this place! An absolutely fantastic find! Literally hundreds of one of a kind, handmade culinary items for the discerning host, even hand crafted dining furniture. You will be amazed at the selection of exclusive, artistic, and spectacular items at this boutique culinary shop. Staff is great; they went out of their way to assist us with finding a wonderful hotel, and also stellar restaurant recommendations.” -DWO

“We just happened upon this fabulous culinary shop. What a great find, we sampled many different sauces, dressings and dips. They all were made with quality ingredients, with excellent favor profiles. We bought some and brought them back to Florida. We had a New Years party and used a couple of their Asiago dips and had rave reviews from our guests. Great product well worth the price.” -Mike Abet

“Lovely Culinary, Kitchen store and so much MORE! We walked into his shop because it looked interesting. We love beautiful kitchen items and ended up finding a souvenir in here. A beautiful natural piece of PLUM wood. It is now on our dining table with our S & P and salad O & V. This store has many unique and hand made items for your home or gift giving. Lovely table top items,glassware, specialty prepared foods, jellies, sauces, marinades, olives, crackers and more. This store is also a very successful catering business. They owner and manager were very helpful and cheerful. If you like to roam around and see,smells and taste, this is a great place to stop in.” -Jeffrey Shapiro

“Great shop for gifts or to splurge! Kurtz’s Culinary has wonderful sweet and savory gifts for the foodie in you. Friendly staff helped me select some of the best items, cheesy artichoke topper, ICE and Cabernet Sauvignon jellies for cheese and can put any size gift basket together. They had endless suggestions on how to make quick, gourmet appetizers and party favorites. They even hand out recipe cards using a variety of Kurtz products. An added bonus is that many products are available for tasting before you select your favorite bites. I especially liked the way they spent time with each customer answering questions and giving suggestions. Great place!” -Happy Retiree

“I am from Frederick, Maryland. I moved to Frederick, Maryland because I love the quaint, historical charm and the boutique-like shops in downtown. Queen Street in Niagara-on-the-Lakes, ON, CAN is similar to my current town. I love towns like these. It brings back a nostalgia peaceful feeling.  Additionally, I love cooking and just recently ventured with wanting to cook with better quality ingredients outside of the neighborhood grocery store. This is a great food shop. Not just because they offer specialty sauces, dips, and jams…but because you are able to taste your way through the store. It was convenient and fun to sample everything – making me confident in my purchase…” -Courtney T.
