Les Touilleurs: A Kitchen Emporium in Montreal

Issue 17 · North Country · April 28, 2014

Located in Montreal's fashionable Outremont neighborhood Les Touilleurs is a high-end kitchen emporium with a working demonstration kitchen and an impeccably designed interior by Louise Savoie.

Owners François Longpré and Sylvain Côté aim to create a "classic store with big open-pantry displays that evoke true kitchen feelings." Among the wares: Wüsthof-Trident knives, All-Clad and Mauviel pots and pans, and hand-carved, beeswax-finished maple spoons and paddles by Quebec artisan Tom Littledeer. The couple has also added Gourmet Trips, from Bretagne to Chicago, to their offerings.
