Gourmet Girls, a Baton Rouge, LA-based bistro and bakery, has made its housewares industry debut. The business recently moved into an expanded location and added a selection of gourmet housewares to its new retail space.
The retail space, explained owner Katia Mangham, includes platters, a line of synthetic glassware, cookbooks and other dishes for entertaining.
“It’s sort of this small curated mix of really special items that you can buy,” she told local news outlet 225BatonRouge.
She also said that she would begin hosting cooking classes and demonstrations in the space, which can fit classes of up to 12.
Mangham spent her career in the food business, opening a restaurant called The Silver Spoon and then launching Gourmet Girls in 2009 as a catering company.
