It’s our 5th anniversary today! Can you believe it?! Way back on 11/1/13, we opened our doors for the very first time. Thank you, Sheboygan, for an amazing ride! We’re so grateful to you and we appreciate your support.
Some fun facts:
- The first item we sold was a $1.99 pickle picker.
- The most popular gadget in the store is the Original Cheese Knife (in cheddar yellow, of course).
- In January 2017, we doubled our size to open our super awesome demonstration kitchen.
- We have been nominated for Sheboygan County Retailer of the Year for four consecutive years, winning the honor in 2018.
- Over 1,000 students have taken a cooking class at Relish, with several hundred more attending private classes, demonstrations, and parties.
- When we opened, Luna was 7.10 pounds of cuteness. Well, that actually hasn’t changed even an ounce over these last five years.

We’re going to be at the Kohler Food & Wine Experience again this year! Stop by and visit our booth Oct. 19 and Oct. 20, while you’re sipping and noshing your way though the Kohler village.
It’s going to be an amazing fall!
Anyone browsing our upcoming cooking class calendar will quickly figure this out, but newsflash: I LOVE fall produce. Onions, potatoes, yams, carrots, turnips, rutabagas… but especially squash. Give me all the gourds! Every trip to the Farmer’s Market becomes a strength-training exercise for my biceps, carrying home bags full of delicata squash, pumpkins, butternuts, acorns, and spaghetti squash. Butternut squash is a personal favorite - made into creamy soups and risottos, spiralized into noodles, baked into chips, shredded and formed into “hash browns”, or just simply diced, roasted and caramelized in the oven — every method is delicious!
Here’s some of our upcoming classes featuring gorgeous fall vegetables:
Wednesday, October 10, 6pm: Fall Dinner for Two (Couples Class)
Wednesday, October 17, 6pm: Cornucopia of Fall Flavor
Tuesday, October 23, 6pm: Pumpkin Spice and All That's Nice
Thursday, November 1, 6pm: Cooking with Cider
Tuesday, November 6, 6pm: A Paleo Thanksgiving
Don't you love Mason Cash mixing bowls? The classic design mixed with an eye-catching color palette will add a bright pop of fun to your kitchen. The bowls are chip resistant, dishwasher and freezer safe, and available in several sizes.
Fun Fact: Mason Cash started making mixing bowls waaay back in 1800. This particular mixing bowl pattern was created in 1901, and the design has hardly been altered since. That’s pretty awesome!
We're halfway through tomato season and the crop is starting to boom! Between our Springdale Farms CSA share, the enticement of bountiful tables at the SCIO Farmer's Market, and our lovely, generous customers, the ladies of Relish are already enjoying heaps of tomatoes. So what to do with your bumper crop? Last year, I made and froze so much garden tomato pasta sauce, I was enjoying it all winter long. We had an excellent salsa canning class earlier this week, which is another great way to save tomatoes for later use. But if you're on the hunt for ideas on how to use your tomatoes while they're still fresh, consider taking our "Totally Tomatoes" cooking class! We'll show you how to make a variety of dishes that give tomatoes center stage, including Greek Tomato Fritters and a luscious Tomato Ricotta Tarte.
Join us on Tuesday, August 28 from 5:00pm - 7:00pm for our first ever Nora Fleming Release Party! You'll get first pick of Nora's new minis and serveware pieces. Enter to win excellent Nora Fleming products, and enjoy food, fun and minis.

Our Fall cooking class schedule is starting to shape up into a whole lot of deliciousness! Seriously, working on these delectable class menus has me starving, 24/7! We're planning classes that are loaded with fall flavor - from luscious stock-making to cooking with cider, from deep-diving into the world of pesto to crafting memorable fall desserts rich with warm spices. We'll take a trip to Germany for Oktoberfest, journey to France with Jacques and Julia, and head out East for a taste of the Chesapeake. You won't want to miss it!
We'll be releasing the September and October schedule very soon --- keep an eye on our Facebook announcements! (www.facebook.com/relishkitchenstore)
