Passionate about gourmet cooking and frustrated at having to travel all over town to gather the ingredients for one simple meal, Kathy Kudler decided to open her own gourmet food shop. Her vision was to create one store that would stock a wide selection of the freshest ingredients as well as all of the tools a gourmet cook could ever want. Kathy was certain that combining the convenience of one-stop shopping with reasonable prices would be a recipe for success.
Kathy’s vision became a reality in 1998 with the opening of the La Jolla store. Her concept was an immediate success and in two years Kudler’s expanded with the opening of the Del Mar location. Our latest store opened in Encinitas in 2003 and we are already looking for just the right spot for another shop!
Kudler Fine Foods is committed to providing our customers with the finest selection of the very best foods and wines so that your culinary visions can come true. Thank you for your patronage and giving us the opportunity to serve you.
