  1. Confessions of a Serial Entertainer by Steven Stolman

    Book: Confessions of a Serial Entertainer by Steven Stolman (signed by the author)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $29.99

    Why It's Cool: Witty, entertaining and informative book about how to be a gracious, relaxed and confident host.

    We love cookbooks and have a huge library of them, but it’s not something we’ve chosen to carry at Colbrook Kitchen… until now. But then, this isn’t just a cookbook--it’s a guidebook for anyone who invites people over (or would like to) and wants to do it with a maximum of style and a minimum of stress.

    Steven Stolman, clothing designer, former president of Scalamandre Fabrics, author, and self-proclaimed serial entertainer, shares his secrets, not only of how to be a gracious host, but how to be a great guest as well. Steven is the author of 40 Years of Fabulous and Scalamandré: Haute Décor. And he's our cousin!
    He freely admits to using lots of shortcuts and packaged products to make life easier, and these tips and many others are part of the wit and wisdom that fills these pages and will make everyone from the novice to the veteran party thrower a more confident and successful host. And along the way Steven shares recipes for everything from Pimento Cheese through Chicken Milanese to Sorta Strawberries Romanoff.

  2. Carré Olive Wood Dip Olive Boat

    Carré Olive Wood Olive Boat

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $40.99

    Why It's Cool: Easy to both serve and retrieve olives in a warm, beautiful presentation

    The Olive Boat from Carré is an excellent example of the combination of functionality and design: the “beauty” that we look for in a Cool Tool.

    This classic design makes serving olives - whether cured or straight out the jar - easy and convenient. Olives line up neatly in the Olive Boat and can be retrieved easily from either end … and refilling even while your guests continue to enjoy them is quite simple. Cleanup is doubly simple: as with any good piece of wood, no soap or water required. Simply wipe away the excess oil, while leaving behind whatever oil is naturally absorbed by the wood, to achieve the double benefits of cleaning and seasoning. You’ll use this frequently in your home, and it makes a great gift!

  3. Sea Collection

    Charles Viancin Silicone Glass Covers (XSmall Lids) - Set of 2

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $8.99

    Why It's Cool: Keeps the heat in and the bugs out

    OK, it’s a beautiful afternoon, you’re enjoying the outdoors with a lovely glass of wine, and all of a sudden you notice that a fruit fly is doing the backstroke in your wine glass--ugh!

    Unfortunately, bugs are a fact of outdoor life, but they don’t have to be a source of protein in your drink. These small adorable silicone lids form Charles Viancin in a bunch of different designs are perfect for keeping the bugs out of your glass or (in the case of coffee or tea) the heat in your cup. At 4 ½” in diameter, they fit just about any wine glass, highball or cocktail glass, cup or mug, and look good while they’re doing it.

    And they also make great covers for cups of soup at your table--try a different cover on each bowl for a charming and whimsical table setting!

  4. Erik Bagger Stainless Steel Nut and Olive Spoon Set

    Erik Bagger Stainless Steel Nut and Olive Spoon Set (Serving Spoons)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Regular Price: $30.50

    Special Price: $20.00

    Why It's Cool: Stylish and functional way to prevent the spread of germs in shared food.

    We’re not germaphobes, but there seems to be a concern these days that germs spread all too easily. We now sneeze into our elbows and try to remember to sanitize our hands. So it probably makes sense to put something between bare fingers and shared food...so long as it’s done graciously and with style.

    fusionbrands ServeItUp (Serving Pedestal)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Creates an elegant elevated server without the storage problems

    One of the key elements to creating a beautiful table is the subtle use of height--it adds a dimension (both literally and figuratively) to the look of your table. But as elegant as footed plates may be, you know that storing them is a nightmare. And then if you want to change the look, you have to buy another footed plate...and where do you put that?

    Well, the folks at fusionbrands have come up with an incredibly clever solution…

  6. Joseph Joseph Double Dish

    Joseph Joseph Double Dish™

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Hides pistachio shells, olive pits, etc. out of sight

    We love eating and serving olives and pistachios, and I love edamame. We also love cherries and cherry tomatoes. The thing that all these foods have in common is that they leave detritus behind: pits, shells, stems, etc. We have been on a many-year hunt for the perfect serving piece to offer the food and deal with the residue. We found several in the south of France that had a separate space for the residue, either next to the good food, or, in one case, over it in a lid that held the pits and had to be removed every time you wanted an olive.

  7. Lékué PopCorn Microwave Popcorn Maker

    Lékué PopCorn Microwave Popcorn Maker

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Makes great popcorn that's both convenient and healthy; distributes toppings throughout! Collapses for easy storage.

    Remember when making popcorn was as easy as throwing a bag (including who knew what additives) into your microwave, waiting a few minutes and then taking out a bag of popped popcorn? Then we learned that all those additives weren’t very good for us. So the convenience of microwave popcorn went out the window. We still wanted popcorn, but we wanted to control the quality of the corn, as well as any of the other stuff that was used to cook it.

    Well, now we’re back to having it all: convenience and total control of the ingredients, as well as great tasting popcorn!

  8. Oggi Handled Expandible Trivet

    Oggi Handled Expandible Trivet

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $20.00

    Why It's Cool: Sleek design, easy to serve and pass your hottest casserole.

    Does this sound familiar? You’ve made a beautiful casserole for company, but how do you serve it? If it’s hot (and it probably should be), do you don oven mitts and try to keep a grip on it as you pass it around? Or do you designate someone as “Mom” to serve as everyone passes their plates? Neither of these is a very elegant solution.

    On one of our trips to France, in a town in the Dordogne, we went to a small cookware store and found a wonderful expandable stainless steel trivet with handles that would take almost any size casserole dish to the table safely and elegantly, and also make it easy to pass the casserole around the table to serve.

    When we started this business we hunted for an equivalent to offer to you, because it has become a treasured and very useful part of our kitchen. Finally, this last January we found one and have been putting it through its paces...and we can truly say that the new one has everything we were looking for ….

    Why It's Cool: Deviled Eggs stay chilled (and food safe) ...for as long as they last!

    Everybody loves Deviled Eggs - right? And we especially love them in summertime, when we can devour those one-bite wonders almost as quickly as they’re served!

    But wait! Isn’t that kind of quickfire consumption really a learned behavior? ...because those delicious chilled morsels of protein - and mayonnaise, and more - can spoil so quickly in the summer heat? Now, you can slow down, and savor your Deviled Eggs … because we’ve found a Cool Tool that will keep your Deviled Eggs cool!

    Why It's Cool: Top lip puts your salsa firmly on your chip with no dripping

    How many times have you made (or have you watched your guests make) a mess of the seemingly simple act of dipping your chip into Salsa (or some other delicious, but messy, dip)? And how many times have you thought … there ought to be a solution for this problem! Well, … you can take that question off your list of life’s great mysteries, because two very clever, motivated guys have answered that one! And now you can ask yourself - why didn’t I think of that?
