Happy 12 years to Culinary Connection!

Located in The Shops at Legacy in Plano, Culinary Connection hosts an incredible selection of product lines and styles that work together to bring warmth, elegance and style to the home’s dining, bar or entertaining areas. Customers enhance and accent their lifestyle with the help of the unique collection of products offered. At Culinary Connection, the focus is about the connection or presentation to the home and kitchen rather than the preparation side of the culinary experience.

An artisan and 12-year anniversary celebration event was held at Pam Vincent’s shop, owner of the Plano-based company, with the accompaniment of artisan Alessandro Taddei. Born in Italy, he began learning from local craftsmen in Tuscany and developed his 30-year resume in ceramics by working alongside the best ceramic maestros in the world. Taddei is most known for his ever popular, best-selling Old St. Nick collection, which was inspired by his childhood memories of stories his mother used to read him about Babbo Natale.

Customers at the event were thrilled to meet Taddei, and have the opportunity to buy a VIETRI piece that could be signed by the artisan himself. For those who are unfamiliar with this brand, Pam Vincent gives a great explanation by stating that VIETRI, “has grown from a small company representing one Italian factory to the largest Italian importing company in the American tabletop industry.” It is not only a popular company in all 50 United States, but also serves Canada, England, Mexico, Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. Pam goes on to mention the 40 manufacturers VIETRI works with throughout Italy and their involvement in ceramics (earthenware and stoneware), glass, metals, and textiles. The richness of European culture combined with a sophisticated American spirit creates the fashion-forward yet classic look of VIETRI’s Italian collections.

Culinary Connection specializes in unique gift items and is proud to represent local artisans. Looking for a one-of-a-kind piece? Look through the many gift options for a friend or family member that is hard to buy for. Pam Vincent  is most passionate about entertaining and spending time with family and friends, and “curating distinctive items for the home. No matter how a meal is prepared, from scratch or take out, a beautiful table can be set and all of life’s blessings appreciated around it.”
