Ghetto Gastro and CRUX Are Launching an Exclusive Line of Small Kitchen Appliances with Wi
Upgrade your cookware with this bold collection.
A team of young chefs redefining the culinary world recently joined forces with a brand known for its stylish, functional kitchen appliances, resulting in a new collection of cookware you need to know about. Ghetto Gastro, a Bronx-based culinary collective founded by Jon Gray, Pierre Serrao, and Lester Walker, and CRUX, a kitchenware brand designed for modern home cooks, have teamed up to create an exclusive line of cookware with Williams Sonoma. “Williams Sonoma began working with Ghetto Gastro and CRUX on a collaboration over a year ago out of admiration for the culinary collective’s shared commitment to community and advancing social justice through food,” said Williams Sonoma president, Ryan Ross, in a statement. “Ghetto Gastro’s culinary prowess and passion for design, culture, and community come through in every piece of the collection.”

The goal of the collection is to offer bold, simple-to-use appliances for the home cook. The chefs involved in the project aim to utilize food to empower communities and advance social justice.
