Whitefish, MT has welcomed new kitchen supply store, Trovare. The independent gourmet housewares store opened its doors on November 9.
According to owner Julie Hickethier, the store is one in which tasting is encouraged. It carries a sampling of gourmet cheeses, olive oils, vinegars, infused salts and other gourmet food products. These are complemented by an array of cookware, bakeware, kitchen tools and cutlery.
She told local news outlet Daily Inter Lake that she heavily analyzed the markets, both at the University of Montana and on the ground, to figure out the best location and product assortment for her business.
Hickethier noted that she plans to host cooking classes and chef-driven events at Trovare after the holiday season winds down.
