With most of us staying at home, coming up with dishes for your daily meals can become a chore. Continuing to cater to the needs of all customers, Rustan’s allows everyone to Embrace Summer as their Home Department provides curated choices and fine experiences from store to home to help you make and serve a great feast for your family.

Rustan's will take care of the participants hardware, whether these are electric appliances that will make cooking a lot more convenient or dinnerware to showcase the hard work they put in and present the food well," Chef Him Uy de Baron, Restaurant Consultant of Rustan's East Café.

Each class will have a unique theme that will require specific kitchen tools and equipment, which, if unavailable to you, can be found at Rustan’s.
