When Chef Kristen Schumacher opened Heirloom Cookshop in sleepy downtown Snoqualmie a year ago in September, she never imagined how quickly it would grow and impact the little town. Her vision was to offer some grab-and-go items and cooking classes in the historic State Bank of Snoqualmie building on River Street. Less than a year in, customers were already lined up out the door waiting for a seat upstairs during lunch.
“Women are doing really cool things here. I feel lucky to be part of it. It’s a privilege for me to do this. I love the collaboration,” said Schumacher.
Heirloom Cookshop raised the bar for Snoqualmie’s culinary scene, but Schumacher is also impacting the larger community by organizing events and volunteering.
Heirloom is hosting Procrastination Sunday on Dec. 22, featuring artists, jewelry makers, and “apothecary”-style crafters; a bake sale and fundraiser on Dec. 23; and take-home lasagna and cinnamon rolls on Dec. 24. heirloomcookshop.com
