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.

I have visited thus store several times. It is interesting because of the cooking classes given here. They no longer have the spices they used to sell. A disappointment there. Some of the food items, such as the Charleston rice, are over priced. Same rice at Fresh Market is two dollars cheaper.

This small store on busy Bay St. sells any kind of cooking paraphernalia you can imagine. It's fun guess what some of the stuff is used for! They also give cooking classes that seem to be well attended and fun.

We took a demonstration class which overall was fun and tasty, but seemed to drag on a bit with the poorly conceived comedy presented by the instructors. I felt we were prepared by our concierge to expect little food at the end, but others were not - do not come hungry. The food and instructions were great. They suggest many... More

This place has so many gadgets, we had to ask what some of them were! Lots of colors of everything so very eye-appealing. There was a cooking class going on when were there. Would have loved to do that, but not enough time this trip. Could have spent an hour in here. As it was, just spent my money instead!... More

My wife and I took the cooking class at Charleston Cooks today, a class dedicated to pasta. There were 12 or 13 participants, we made several types of pasta, rolling and forming ourselves, then prepared them along with preparing complete dishes from each pasta. Finally we ate the fruits of our labors. The instructors were very hands on, offering tips... More

We went in Charleston Cooks! after eating dinner next door at SNOB. We wanted to buy a bottle of the Maverick label wine. It's a wonderful cooking store, and there was a cooking class getting ready to start on the other side of the store... something to do the next time we are in town! Great store; very helpful sales...
