Call the Kettle Black set culinary trends and expanded the shopping experience for those with a passion for cooking.
Call the Kettle Black was a local speciality kitchen shop which operated for two decades. Setting culinary trends since their first Edmonton store in 1996 in the Highstreet shopping area of 125 Street and 102 Avenue, Call the Kettle Black owners and operators Darcy Kaser and Randall MacDonald expanded the shopping experience for those with discriminating tastes, sophisticated palates and a passion for cooking. They travelled the world to find the most unique culinary tools and toys while offering a comfortable, friendly atmosphere and knowledgeable staff to give customers quality service and insightful information about the products.
This sign, used for the Highstreet location of Call the Kettle Black, was originally built by Blanchett Neon in 1994. Darcy and Randall opened their second location of Call the Kettle Black in Riverbend Square in 2006, and in 2009 expanded the company to include 3 locations in Vancouver: North Vancouver, Kerrisdale, and West 4th. In 2016, Call the Kettle Black closed down. Their 20 years in business left its impact which is still felt in both cities.
