On New Year’s Eve I had the best time strolling down Manchester in Maplewood to check out some of the new stores. One of my favorites was Nate Bonner’s new shop, NHB Knifeworks. Nate’s knives are collected by chefs and foodies nation-wide. The Maplewood shop also carries other home decor items and cooking-oriented items. I love the twig candles and purchased a ceramic cheese platter with a birch bark design.
Make sure you also check out Larder & Cupboard a few doors down Manchester. I bought some of their ice cream from Audhumbla. Mont Blanc Chestnut Castanean was the flavor I enjoyed….though believe it or not, they also have Beef Brisket.
