Our Story

The Cook’s Nook: Created to Celebrate Family and Food!

The Cook’s Nook was born many years ago when Priscilla Smith realized that young women in the McPherson community needed help with bridal registry. In short, she wanted to help those who were preparing to begin a new and exciting phase of life.

Since then, business has bloomed! Today, the store is run by Priscilla’s daughter Jonna. If you ask Jonna what brings the most joy to her day, the answer is simple: “I like to be the final stop.” So often, people search store after store, trying to find that one item they need to put the final touches on a meal. That one special gift that will convey to a friend just how much they care. At The Cook’s Nook, that’s what we do best!

To say we’re experienced might be a bit of an understatement. Our most recent hire has been on staff for over ten years. When you come inside, we’ll have someone there to greet you with a warm hello and to give you all the help our experienced staff can provide.

Years have passed and our business has grown, but at The Cook’s Nook we remain committed to helping people create beautiful homes and cook delicious food. We hope to you’ll visit us soon!

Great Gifts & Specialty Items!
Spoil the one you love the most! We’ve got a great selection of specialty chocolates in our candy case, and—we’ll even gift wrap it to go!

And, when you’re getting ready for the next family gathering or social event, we can help make it special. We have a great selection of festive foods: appetizer preparation packs and specialty relishes, cheeseball mixes and salsa kits.

Cooking Classes!
Cooking classes: a good excuse to have a great time.
A night out, a chance to meet new people, a professional chef teaching you to cook a fun new dish, an opportunity to be a part of the community—at The Cook’s Nook, we love to bring people together. We love to share our passion for good company and good food. We offer a wide variety of experiences.
