AJ’s Kitchen Drawer is a unique kitchen store and culinary teaching center. It began in 2017 as a small retail store, selling hand forged knives and personalized cutting boards. These products are handmade here in Tampa, Florida with wood imported from AJ’s own family farm in Wisconsin. Combining old and lost techniques of woodworking with a touch of modern technology, we offer a wide variety of products made of the highest quality. Getting customers to try our products led us to begin our culinary center in 2018, and since then have revolutionized what you know about cooking classes.
We offer classes for people of every age and experience. On top of trying out our beautiful products, you will enjoy a full meal made with your own hands. Our experienced professionals will walk you through dishes you have never heard of before, or believed you could ever make, and will do so in a fun and exciting environment.
AJ’s Kitchen Drawer has become the one-stop shop for many things gifting and hosting related. We sell a multitude of handmade, one-of-a-kind wooden pieces ranging from cutting boards, to wooden cups and bowls, Charcuterie boards, wine flights, sushi flights and more. Each wood piece can be personally engraved, or even custom made to fit your needs. So, whether you are looking for the perfect gift or a fun night out, AKD is your spot!
