A kitchen and gift adventure...
For nearly a decade, Mary Beth Guard and her husband Michael have maintained the PrettyFood.com website as a way to share new recipes they developed, explore ideas for entertaining, spotlight cool kitchen gadgets and tools, and experiment with tablescapes (Michael has always said the site was just a reason for Mary Beth to buy more dishes, and that wasn’t far from the truth).
Now, with Capers Emporium, PrettyFood.com has a real home — a large retail store where people can purchase elements to set beautiful tables, concoct wonderful meals, and play with gadgets.
Following a two-year restoration to a building in the heart of downtown New Harmony, Ind., Capers opened its doors in 2018.
Capers is a “kitchen and gift adventure.” With its large commercial kitchen, it offers cooking classes, product demonstrations, food samples. On the other hand, it has a wide range of gift items that don’t involve the kitchen at all — from pocket knives to pajamas, greeting cards, tech toys, and so much more. It’s a destination worth driving to and you will always see new things and items you’ve never seen anywhere else.
