Need more kitchen equipment, the kind professionals use? Elmsford resident Kevin Schofield, not himself a chef (“I just love to eat”), has opened a kitchen-supplies emporium of sorts in White Plains. Chef City, a 7,000-square-foot space, is chock-full of kitchen goods, including Libbey glassware, CAC China, and Allied baking equipment. The store’s bestseller? Professional Mundial knives ($8-$35). Pricing otherwise runs the gamut—from $3.72 for CDN pocket thermometers to $10 to $100-plus for assorted cookware, pots, and pans from Winco and Vollrath, to more than $2,500 (upwards of $10,000 for some models) for Moffit convection ovens.

Sold!—to the Savvy Buyer
Kenneth Hutter, the principal auctioneer and appraiser of Kenneth Hutter Auctions, was a second generation owner of Tepper Galleries in Manhattan until rising rents forced the shop to close in 2010. Thus, Hutter has launched a new auction house, this one closer to his Armonk home. “We knew from personal experience,” he says, “that Westchester residents appreciate fine antiques.”
The shop specializes in 19th- and 20th-century furniture, fine and decorative arts, silver, porcelain, and jewelry, and Hutter purchases and accepts on consignment both entire estates and individual items, with auctions held monthly. Notable recent sales included a Louis Vuitton steamer for $10,000 and a 19th-century oil painting by French artist Emile Munier for $55,000.
Think there’s treasure in your attic? Bring your family heirlooms for a complimentary drop-in appraisal any Tuesday between 11 am and 3 pm.
