Most of the time my visits to these types of stores make for an interesting day. Kitchen gadgets, cookware and sauces are my entertainment and this store rises to activity quite well! The counter person was very knowledgeable and well versed in the local BBQ sauces! I would recommend travelers stopping by Charleston give these fine folks a visit!

I wanted to go to this store since I love to cook. I could of stayed in the store for hours, they had so many neat gadgets and cookware. I bought a bag of stuff and have loved using it. I only wish we would have signed up for a cooking class.

This is a must stop whenever we are in Charleston. They always have great kitchen gadgets to take home for our own use or for gifts. The folks in there are always friendly and they also offer cooking classes. One of these visits, I think I will send my wife to a class when we visit, as she has always... More

I typically stop in if we are in the area, walking around. Although I have a lot of kitchen supplies, they always seem to have something new or different, that I can't live without. Very nice selection of cook and serve ware. If you are into cooking or entertaining, it's definitely worth the stop.

The class focuses on ingredient prep, assembly, and cooking of each menu item. The class is... More

Saw this under "things to do". Nice smallish place with cooking gadgets and also classes. They have some cook books, too...including one just on "shrimp and grits" recipes.

My daughter and I attended the partipation class with Blair and (his wonderful assistant who I can't remember her name!). The kitchen is amazing and learning things in a relaxed atmosphere with people who obviously enjoy what they do and enjoy teaching others was one of the best parts of our trip. The people working in the store are also... More

This is a great way to experience the local fare! The classes are fun and informative with enthusiastic and well trained chefs. The cooking store is interesting and reasonably priced. This is worth the time when visiting Charleston and as a resident I have taken visitors there and they love it.
