MILLY'S OF PONSONBY - SINCE 1983
Milly's of Ponsonby first opened its doors in 1983 and since that time this Ponsonby icon has become known for its wide range of quality cookware and kitchen tools. An enthusiastic following of food lovers, both home cooks and professional chefs, soon helped make this store the success it has become.
Milly's all these years later, still enjoys the reputation of being the premier specialty retailer of kitchenware and cookware in New Zealand. It truly is the Auckland meeting place for people who love to cook!
The brands we represent are among the best known and most respected in New Zealand and we have, over the years, built up long lasting relationships with suppliers of the best quality cookware in the world. We love sharing our food and cooking knowledge (many of us have come from commercial kitchens and other hospitality positions) and are happiest when talking food and recommending to our customers the cookware and kitchen products that we know, and importantly, use ourselves in our kitchens at home.
THE MILLY'S CATALOGUE
Every year since 1997 we have selected the best and the most interesting products we could find and presented them to our customers in our iconic ‘Milly's Catalogue’. This eagerly awaited publication has become an institution in the New Zealand food scene. It is sent to thousands of food lovers across all parts of New Zealand. We try to keep each catalogue true to the original Milly's style - informative and chatty - whilst at the same time keeping abreast of trends. Our catalogues are stuffed full of trusted products, recipes and tips and tricks which, we are reliably informed, become a trusted resource for many months after publication.
Our website began as an extension of our catalogue. It has now morphed into an online resource for foodies and cooks worldwide as it is packed with the same knowledge, how-to’s, recipes and product information that our instore customers enjoy.
MILLY'S COOK SCHOOL
Milly's cook school has recently relocated to 20 Heather Street in Parnell. Here we continue to offer the full range of Wilton Cake Decorating classes brought to you by our internationally trained Wilton tutors. Wilton is a vast cake decorating brand in the US and Milly's imports a large selection of Wilton specialty bakeware and cake decorating tools and products. Our cake decorating courses are extremely popular and are often booked out months in advance.
We also hold a range of speciality cake classes and general cooking classes here too. Details of these can be found on our website under the “Classes” tab.
