Every kitchen gadget you can think of, and quite a few that you haven't! I can't go into Charleston Cooks! without leaving with something that I LOVE. I visit nearly every time I head to downtown Charleston.

I have visited this little cooking store several times. I usually find something interesting to buy. I took one of there classes and thoroughly enjoyed it. I still make the Shrimp and Grits recipe that I learned. A great Charleston experience.

Loved the mixture of regular and quirky kitchen products, cookbooks, and gadgets. It reminded me a bit of Sur la Table, but with a more edgy flair. Great place for adding some unique touches to your kitchen!

Great Chef who made it fun and we learned a lot about Argentina cooking. Just the right amount of students. Loved participating and eating our final product as well.

Lots of great kitchen gadgets and accessories here. They also offer cooking classes (we watched a bit of one through the glass but did not attend). Will try one on our next visit as they looked and sounded fun.

Great little store in the middle of town. If your missing a gadget in your kitchen they have it. If you need cooking lessons, you can even get those there.
