We went as a group to one of the presentations on how to cook Low Country food. We watched the preparation of 3 recipes and then we got to eat the whole thing! The attached store is good for picking up lots of cooking utensils including those that were demonstrated in the cooking session. A fun experience!

This was a great hit to do as a team building activity while in Charleston and walking distance from the Inn we stayed in.

This store exemplifies what the downtown area is all about - FOOD & COOKING! There are so many of the cities best restaurants within a block of here, this store highlights how connected to food Market St and East Bay are. The Historic Market is a must visit, fun for locals, and driven by hospitality. I shop here too;)

Blaire was fun and educational as he taught tips and techniques of the kitchen and cooking effortlessly. Best part was when we got to eat!

Most of the clerks in this store don't have a clue! And frankly, neither does the management. But, we still ended up buying an eighty five dollar Le Cruset casserole piece for a gift to give our friends who were watching our dog while we were in Charleston. We asked for a gift box and they said that they didn't... More

our cooking class -- Shrimp & Grits and Chocolate Pecan Pie -- was a fun culinary tour of the Low Country and a most worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours. I had wondered how the grits I'd been eating were so much creamier than my own, so when we visited the fun cooking store and were asked if... More

We had a great time learning how to cook low country food. We learned to cook and got to eat the best collards I have ever eaten. The cook smoked pork on a stovetop smoker, cooked hopping john and we drank wine with the meal. Since it was not crowded in January, we had plenty to eat.

Spending an afternoon with friends was a great way to learn some new techniques, hear some fun facts about low country cooking and enjoy delicious samples. A reasonable price for 90 minutes of fun! Very nice to have a discount at the store as well - they have a great selection.

We didn't attend any classes or demonstrations, but loved some of the unique kitchen items available. They also have more traditional high-end products. Staff was fun to chat with.
