If you need something for your kitchen, this store will have it. It is such a fun store to browse, there are so many items there that you never knew existed. But, these items are so useful. They also offer cooking classes which I sadly didn't have time for this trip.

Oh a whim, we signed up for an afternoon class of low country cooking. Chef Blair Mingo was funny and informative. My wife and I learned lots and the meal he prepared was absolutely FABULOUS: Smoke pork, hoppin' John, collard greens and strawberry cake. AWESOME experience. Wish we had discovered it earlier- we would have taken 2 or 3 classes.

This is a great store! We wandered around for about an hour delighting in the scores of fun gadgets and goodies. Everything is top quality. We left with two large shopping bags and cannot wait to get home and start cooking. We found local food items that we did not see anywhere else. Pickled hot okra, Red Clay hot sauces,... More

My wife and I participated in a cooking class here in early March. It was a hands on session, which made the event a lot of fun. A total of five dishes were prepared in class, and then everyone sat down to enjoy all of the dishes - they all turned out very well. We ate so much we skipped... More

If you like to cook, check out this kitchen gadget mecca on East Bay. I always discover something I just have to have. Fun and interesting, they also offer cooking classes.

This is a retail kitchen equipment store, but with a lot of charm and savvy. It has things that you didn't even know you needed, but you will before you leave. Prices are excellent. I scored a German device that takes the top off a soft boiled egg. It cost me $8 but it retails for $22 in famous-name online... More

We happened too be walking past and remembered reading TA reviews. The staff was pleasant and helpful but I did not see anything very different from another kitchen store. Certainly not worth a special trip.
