Chefworks is now known as Toque Blanche, just like its sister store in Half Moon Bay.
As you may already know, a toque blanche is the white pleated hat that a chef wears. The name was chosen to emphasize that the store exists to serve the needs of cooks—the home chefs as well as the professional ones.
Some background about the stores: Toque Blanche in Half Moon Bay was opened by Charles Nelson in 2006. In 2013, he purchased Chefworks in Santa Cruz from the original owner. Although each store is distinct, they share the same drive to find and stock the best cookware and accessories. And the management and staff at both stores are all enthusiastic home chefs.
We look forward to continuing to serve you under our new name.
