These are just some of the stores at which to shop for your chef arsenal, so tag the other places where you like to shop in our neighbourhood, and share your kitchen secrets.

You cannot miss Le Creuset’s new Fig hue as you wander by its colourful store. Here’s where you’ll find pots that will last you a lifetime. Woolworths is equally enticing, with a large portion of its lower level dedicated to kitchenware. Its baking utensils are stylish and the loaf pans are just the right size.

Many people are surprised to find online retailer Yuppiechef has a physical store in our neighbourhood. It sells everything from outdoor cooking brand Everdure by Heston Blumenthal to Wüsthof electric knife sharpeners.

Make MRP Home your stop when looking for quirky, fun utensils and gadgets for the kitchen. Its casserole dishes are sturdy and affordable. But if it’s a toaster, juicer or slow cooker you’re after, check out @home for a great variety of high-quality appliances. For statement-making dinner tables, opt for Country Road’s thick ceramic dishes and modern graphite cutlery.

After the success of 100 Beautiful Things, where we celebrated creativity, compassion, ingenuity and resilience, through projects, products, ideas and experiences from around the country, we’re bringing this idea of celebration closer to home.

Photographed and illustrated by a group of young South African talents, many of our experiences are unique to our hood and can be found nowhere else on the planet!
