Cute little shop but it's so typical. Did have some samples out but I could see the same things anywhere.

I am not much of a cook, but I enjoy cooking classes as a great way to learn about a city. This venue is near the Charleston Market in the heart of town. There is a kitchen side and a retail sales side. The food was authentic and tasty, but this activity was a little wanting in terms of being... More

I attended a demo/class on low country cooking with Chef Blaire...and he rocked! He was animated, gave great tips and advice and explained clearly every step of what he was doing, preparing, cooking, etc. The food was delicious! The best part...the 10% discount you get after the class in the store. They have great kitchen gadgets and local food stuffs.... More

You learn some local history as well as history of the regional cuisine. The recipes are useful and the cooking tips very worthwhile. The chefs (we have seen three different ones) are personable and well versed... More

The really special thing is the afternoon and evening cookings demos that they offer. You have to sign up early as they are heavily subscribed. My... More

I attended a demonstration class at Charleston Cooks this afternoon. Blair was the chef. He was knowledgeable, funny, and produced a delicious meal for us to enjoy. During this 1.5 hour experience, Blair shared with us the history of lowcountry cooking, shared tips and tools for food preparation, and answered many questions, all while preparing sweet/spicy fried chicken, Carolina Gold...
