For close to 25 years, the Main Course has offered professional-to-novice chefs a place to browse, talk and learn more about cooking. Julia Frater, owner and cookware expert, assembles an assortment of quality products to meet the needs of her customers. Whether your passion is baking, braising or barbeque, we are here to help you discover the tools and expertise you need to be successful in your own kitchen.

The Main Course is a business built intentionally on the following core values:

  • Every person we encounter is important to us and deserves the best service, information and products we can offer.
  • Every product we sell should provide our customers with an enjoyable and enduring experience or we will gladly refund or exchange your purchase.
  • Every decision we make will consider the impact on our customers, our community and the planet.
Reaching out beyond the cozy confines of our shop, we hope you find the same warm, friendly feeling, great information resource and exceptional service that are the hallmarks of our business. Feedback and ideas welcome!
