Some fine wooden kitchenware made in Door County has come a long way in two years and is gaining national attention. Richard Rose Culinary moved its retail operation called Cutting Boards and More to a larger store on Jefferson Street in Sturgeon Bay. Richard Odea and Rose Miranda initially wanted to sell their unique cutting boards and other wooden kitchenware at their own retail location as well as online. Rose Miranda says she fell in love with Door County during an Odea family wedding. She says the proximity to raw materials made the decision to move from Tucson to Sturgeon Bay very easy.
The handcrafted cutting boards and other items are made at the DCEDC Business Development Center, where additional manufacturing equipment was recently installed. Richard Rose Culinary is known for making kitchenware of all shapes and sizes. Miranda says their product quality is gaining national exposure.
In addition to Richard Rose Culinary wood products, the Cutting Boards and More shop also sells other Door County products. Those include “Chocolate Chicken” coffees and candies, “Cherry De-Lite” products, “Sweetie Pies,” “Uncle Tom’s” candies and products made by “A Sturgeon Bay Bowl Turner and Potters.”
