Quincaillerie Dante

Quincaillerie dante

When you walk out of Milano, turn right and walk to the first light (Dante street) then cross St Laurent and walk one block down Dante Street to Quincaillerie Dante. This is one of my favourite places in the city, a tiny little store filled to the brim with kitchenware (and hunting gear!). Opened since 1956, the ex-hardware store – and favourite chef haunt – is now dedicated to selling kitchen appliances, utensils, houseware and oils and vinegars as well as hunting supplies. The juxtaposition of pasta-making machines and rifles is a bit surprising at first but the concept seems to be working. Along with the dizzying array of colourful kitchen essentials you will also be able to listen in on a free pasta-making lesson every Saturday afternoon by the reference in Italian cooking in Montreal, Elena Faita, owner of the store since 1968.
