Imagine a trunk full of premium kitchen essentials compiled to represent the best kitchen tools a cook could ever desire. This is exactly what Isabelle Mathez and Frederic Winkler set out to do, after their daughter threatened to poach their heirloom kitchen utensils prior to leaving home. Each product was curated for its exceptional quality, functionality, and beauty. Are any of your favorite kitchen items part of the Malle W. Trousseau kitchen set?
