The holidays are a time of reflection, family and friends, gratitude, and of course - food. For the culinarian in your life, offerings of handcrafted cutting boards, antique trays, and inviting ceramics personally chosen by a loved one for their kitchen will not go unnoticed and will certainly add to their cooking and hosting experiences.
At Ró, we are lovers of slow home cooked meals, warm candle-burning evenings, and pink lips from that extra glass of red wine on a snowy night. With all the time spent in the kitchen this holiday season, help your favorite home chef slow down and savor with these handpicked selections for winter days spent by the stove.

This nourishing formula is prepared by hand in small batches, by delicately infusing pure white mineral oil with fragrant essential oils.
