Art and Cook: Bringing Creativity Back to the Kitchen

“We’ll help you put food on the table - more than that, we’re here to feed your head. Great ideas are to the soul and mind as food is to the body.” Allan Ben

Who is Art and Cook?

We design and create distinctive kitchenware that is functional and beautiful. We aim to inject more joy and life into cooking and all that it brings: connection, fun, experimentation, and artistry. 

To us, cooking is an art and a craft - a pursuit of the senses and of the intellect, as delicately balanced as the flavors in a fine dish. When Art and Cook turned its attention to the mechanics of cooking, we committed to creating tools that heighten not only the efficiency, but also the visual and tactile gratification of your cooking experience.

You’re never far away from an inspired recipe or pro cooking tip with Art and Cook. Across this website and all our social media channels, our endeavor is to stimulate the senses and encourage creative expression in the kitchen. 

Our Mission: Bringing Creativity to the Kitchen and Table

Everything we create is based on marrying function to form, style to quality, innovation to inspiration. We are all about enhancing your cooking experience - and your life.  

Our founding director, Allan Ben, had a vision to change the way we think about time in the kitchen. He authored the bestseller, Art and Cook, a cookbook re-imagined as a meditation on life, culture, and artistry rather than a conventional collection of recipes with predictable photography.

From the beginning, we have sought to disrupt, invent, and motivate; to sweep away outdated notions about cooking and to celebrate the beauty and meaning of time spent in the kitchen. 

We see the kitchen as the heart of the home. It's the place where people are reconnecting after an unprecedented global pandemic. Art and Cook is here to help you make room for more guests at your table by offering everything you need to host and entertain.

Art and Cook Products: A Cut Above the Rest

We want Art and Cook products to spark the question: how have I ever lived without this?! Kitchen solutions like a fat separator cup or bulb baster for holiday roasts - you won’t know what you’ve been missing until they’re in your hands! Or the Art and Cook silicone crust mold and silicone crust protector for all your festive winter baking. How have we survived without these simple pie-making hacks?

When it comes to inspired style, why not reach for our colorful wood-handled knives or sleek steel and silicone utensils? We are committed to creating innovative products that enhance every aspect of your cooking and entertaining experience while staying true to our vision for artistry and beautiful design. 

Kitchen Solutions You Didn’t Know You Needed
