Located in Montreal's fashionable Outremont neighborhood  Les Touilleurs is a high-end kitchen emporium with a working demonstration kitchen and an impeccably designed interior by Louise Savoie. Owners François Longpré and Sylvain Côté aim to create a "classic store with big open-pantry displays that evoke true kitchen feelings." Among the wares: Wüsthof-Trident knives, All-Clad and Mauviel pots and pans, and hand-carved, beeswax-finished maple spoons and paddles by Quebec artisan Tom Littledeer. The couple has also added Gourmet Trips , from Bretagne to Chicago,  to their offerings. Above:  Les Touilleurs  is located  on  Avenue Laurier Ouest in Outremont, Montreal.
