So glad we stopped in here while walking around Carmel. They have samples of food out everywhere, very nice! Great gift ideas and large selection of olive oils and fun finds for the kitchen. I will definitely return when wanting a unique gift. I bought some of the pastas that I'm looking forward to trying. Great store!

It is a really great store! There's a lot of samples of kurtz products to try. Almost all are very tasties and excelent options to apetizers for a lunch or a dinner or even just to bite during a good game on tv. Go there!

Dropped in last night just to have a look around and ended up staying for about 45 minutes. Ernie was more than welcoming, what a wonderful person. We sampled all the amazing dips and spreads and bought a few beautiful pieces to take home with us! There were so many things I wanted to take home, but only so much... More

Kurtz Culinary was a wonderful shop. It carries the most unique wine furniture and pieces. The owner, Ernie, was absolutely a breath of fresh air. He was so helpful and knowledgeable. I will forever make it a tradition to stop by each time I visit Carmel. WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!! Thanks Ernie!!!!

This is a fun store to go and taste and then buy ones you like. The employees are helpful and the store is a delight. There are marinades, sauces, jellies, spreads, oils. It is fun to stop at if one likes food.

When we travel we love buying food to take home as a souvenir. We were able to taste the many bottled foods on crackers. My husband and I each chose a favourite and purchased them. It was great fun and we are looking forward to enjoying these foods when we return home.
