She’s Making A List. And Checking It Twice.


M. Tucker hosted our first Farm-to-City pop-up at Steelite International’s NYC Showroom in conjunction with The Hotel Experience Show (HX) last month. “We could not think of a better way to kick off the holiday season,” said John Miles, President of Steelite, in his welcoming remarks.

In case you missed our inaugural fete, I’d like to fill you in. Upon arrival, the Farm-to-City guests were greeted with a curated tablescape of our proprietary collections. Charlotte Voisey, acclaimed Mixologist of William Grant Sons, kept the party fueled with expertly crafted Hendricks Gin cocktails. We hosted special guests Farmer Lee and Mary Jones of The Chef’s Garden and Executive Chef Jamie Simpson of the Culinary Vegetable Institute – who brought the farm to NoMad for the first time! Guests were invited to explore the boundaries of their tongues and their tabletops.

Our brand, Little M. Tucker, continues to expand rapidly. With the addition of our pop-up launches, we now have over 50 collections. It’s my pleasure to share many of them with you now. Interested in seeing more? Follow our newly minted Instagram – @littlemtuckerco.

It’s been a big year for us. Unlike other regional distributors, we are now truly serving a national network. Our company executed projects in 48 states. I made sales calls in 19 of them. We’re sourcing ourselves… quality products. I visited 6 European countries in the past 12 months to source exclusive dinnerware patterns. And on one of those international adventures, I witnessed the most important tabletop presentation in the history of American cuisine at the Bocuse D’Or, highlighted in my February LMT column, a favorite of 2017.

This year has certainly flown by and our team continues to achieve new milestones. One of the accomplishments I am most proud of is being a member of an illustrious group of strong female leaders, which have been featured in this issue each of the past three years. For those joining the list of The Top Women in Metro NY Foodservice Hospitality for the first time in 2018, welcome. Thank you for your commitment to development. Of yourself and of others. Thank you for paying it forward. Thank you for believing in better.

“If you “Believe in Better,” our world will continue to change for the better – one girl, one woman at a time.” Laura Kohler, Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Stewardship, Kohler Co.

I am a list person. I love making lists. I love people who make lists. I love checking things off my lists.

Join me in checking off nine recommendations from Ms. Kohler on how to truly make a difference this holiday season and beyond. Cheers.

These are the 5 best deals for home cooks on Amazon right now

— Our editors review and recommend products to help you buy the stuff you need. If you make a purchase by clicking one of our links, we may earn a small share of the revenue. However, our picks and opinions are independent from USA TODAY’s newsroom and any business incentives.

Day 7 of Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals brings a veritable buffet of discounts on all sorts of fantastic gifts for anyone who loves to cook. And if you’re hosting a holiday party this year, maybe it’s a good day to treat yourself to something new in your own kitchen too. We pored over all the different offers available today, and while there are lots of great prices on things like FRED and Friends kitchen accessories and holiday entertaining essentials, these five deals really stood out from the rest.

1. A new chef’s knife

Prepping ingredients for a meal can be really cathartic and fun, but if you’re using a knife with a dull blade, it can be stressful and tiring. There are all sorts of different knives for different tasks, but every home chef should always have one all-purpose chef’s knife on hand. This popular, highly rated knife goes on sale every few months, and for under $20, you really can’t go wrong. Most quality chef’s knives cost around $100 or more, and this one originally cost $100 but usually sells for $30-$40.

Get the Imarku 8-inch Chef’s Knife for $18.99 and save $11

2. A countertop herb garden

Cooking with fresh herbs always makes the food taste better, but buying them at the store is a pain. You can never use all of them before they go bad, and it’s just wasteful and expensive. So why not grow them right on your counter? The AeroGrow AeroGarden can handle up to six different plants at once, making it easy to always have your favorites on hand (and it comes with seeds to get started!). Not only does it come with an automatic light to keep plants healthy all year long, but the garden can remind you when your plants need to be watered. Did I mention this usually costs $180, but it’s marked down to $120 right now?

Get the AeroGrow AeroGarden Harvest Elite Countertop Garden for $119.95 and save $60

3. A full set of knives in a classic wood block

Know someone who could use more than just a new chef’s knife? This Cuisinart 15-piece stainless steel knife set might be just the thing. It typically costs about $70 and hasn’t been discounted this deeply in a year, making it a great time to grab one. It comes with an 8-inch chef’s knife, a bread knife, a santoku knife, a utility knife, a paring knife, a sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and six steak knifes, all in a timeless wood block.

Get the Cuisinart 15-piece stainless steel knife set for $55.24 and save $15

4. A stunning set of copper cookware

Do you know anyone who loves to cook but is stuck using old, scratched pots and pans with chips and wiggly handles? Why not surprise them with replacements they’re sure to love? This best-selling Gotham cookware set is not only made of steel and highly durable, but it’s all nonstick too. For just $75, this is a robust collection. It includes a 8.5-inch frying pan, a 10.25-inch frying pan, a 1-quart sauce pan, a 1.5-quart stock pot, a 2.5-quart stock pot, a 5-quart stock pot, a steamer insert for the largest stock pot, and lids for all but the small frying pan.

Get the Gotham 12-Piece Copper NonStick Kitchen Set for $74.99 and save $35

5. A kitchen mat for comfortable cooking

OK, this might seem kind of weird as a gift. A floor mat? Well, it’s actually really great for anyone who spends hours on their feet, especially baking cookies for the whole family or preparing a feast. It provides cushion that can prevent and ease foot and back pain, and it’s extra study to prevent slips. This GelPro mat usually costs $60, but it’s nearly half off right now. It may not be the flashiest gift to give this year, but it’s one that will be well-used and loved for years to come.

Get the NewLife by GelPro Anti-Fatigue Kitchen Mat for $34.99 and save $25
