Enter our draw for a grand prize of a Krups Silver Art Espresso maker, plus receive a FREE gift if you're among the first 40 people to arrive on Saturday!

Chef Bianca Osbourne, Edmonton's effervescent chef with a natural foods perspective, will be in the kitchen conducting demonstrations every hour. Bill Marshall, our Zwilling representative will be here in the afternoon to educate on Henckels products and you will be able to sample products from our best suppliers -- Gourmet du Village, Bella Cucina, Garlic Box and more.

Thank you to everyone for your support and patronage over the past year! We look forward to serving the community for many years to come!

Meet Cathy

Posted on Mar 01, 2013. 0 comments

 Hi, I'm Cathy Slobodian, part owner of The Pan Tree and Baskets in the Park. My passions are retail, cooking and travelling. In the store, you will usually find me in the office but, on Saturdays I love to cook up a storm in the demo kitchen. I like to try out new dishes and what better place to prepare them than in The Pan Tree kitchen! Pop in and say hi and sample the creation of the day.

Currently my favorite product from The Pan Tree is the Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker.  I'm new to pressure cooking and am amazed at how quickly foods cook in these pots and how fresh everything tastes when it's cooked this way.  So far, I've made beef stock, chicken stock, pumpkin soup, squash soup, all kinds of veggies, red wine braised beef shanks, and more.  Everything has been delicious and the time for cooking is cut by half or more!  I don't know how I lived without this for 35 years!  Hope to see you in the store soon.
