Wife and I scheduled a class for something different to do on couples day. Seemed like a great idea and we figured we could learn something new. The class was not overly lengthy, lasting about an hour. We assumed one of the several two person work stations and immediately began. Turns out the class was GREAT! Our instructor led us step by step through the preparation phase and then the cooking of the food. Then we got to eat our creation, and it was fantastic. Along the way, we were presented with lots of tips and tricks which was a wonderful surprise. Kudos to the staff! Also the store has a good selection of kitchen ware. We will be going back back again. Different menus are offered through the month. Consult the online schedule and pick one that suits your fancy.

I shop there for kitchen items all the time. I purchased gift cards for cooking classes. They offer lots of different menus. We gave them to our kids for Christmas.

I recently moved back to the area after being away for 15 years and was very pleasantly surprised to discover the exciting transformation of Sharon's downtown! Thyme In Your Kitchen is an innovative facility, the likes of which you would expect to find in a much larger metropolitan area. The retail side carries a wide variety of unique cookware and gift ideas while the open kitchen is a beautiful setting to interact with fellow foodies and the chef instructor over the course of an evening. I enjoyed learning some restaurant "secrets" to create delicious food and meeting new friends in this interactive environment! Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area!

I have been to 4 different classes here in the past year with 3 different chefs. This is a great way to spend time with friends and family while learning new recipes and cooking techniques. The chefs all have different cooking and teaching styles and all have prepared delicious food. The owners warmly welcome all guests and are quick to make you feel at ease. Classes are fun and interactive, guests are encouraged to mix and mingle with each other and to participate at whatever level they feel comfortable. The chefs have all been very knowledgable, and I have learned a lot cooking with these culinary professionals. I have attended cooking classes in Pittsburgh for years, and I can say that these classes surpass any that I participated in there, and for about half the cost! The store is well-stocked with quality cookware and unique gadgets; a real foodies' dream store! I will continue to attend classes, to learn new recipes and to just have a fun night out!

Went on a date night with my husband. Not much instruction as you sign up or even when you get there - kinda loosey goosey - but, I guess they are new or maybe most of the people are "regulars". We got to actually only prep part of one dish out of a 4 course meal - so kinda misleading. I think they would do well to invest in one of the those mirrors for above the cook - we couldn't really see what he was doing. He openly admitted to not have any real cooking credentials as far as cooking goes; other than working at a well known slightly upper scaled restaurant. He used margarine and Velveeta in two of his recipes, which, I thought as "odd" and slightly "unprofessional". Margarine is a step above plastic - uugggh! There was a few dead times in-between courses that he cleaned up. I felt he could have used that time more efficiently and he said we would we sample some more beers and we did not. We ended up browsing the store and they do have some cute things for decent prices.
I think he could have provided more attention to one of the items another table made as it really turned out horrible. And unfortunately, one lady used the bathroom with her apron on - YUCK. I guess you need a sign saying "Remove apron before entering" on bathroom doors - you can't teach common sense.
A few things weren't cooked correctly and had to be put back in the oven. Again, timing was off and I feel the lack of proper education reflected on this cook. Perhaps offer a lower price when the cook is not really a chef?
The biggest turnoff of the whole evening was that the owner (or maybe she was just a manager) had her (boy?)friend there; she kept taking him over samples of beer. Each course was paired with a beer. Well, along with some loud talking between them which was distracting he ended up getting drunk and dropped his beer goblet right outside the door when he went out for a smoke. (He had brought some of his own beer in to the store as well). This really was unfortunate and unappealing to us. Plus, he got a bigger sample than most of us and we were paying customers! No way to grow or run a business for success.
I'd like to say we'd go back and try it again -but, for the cost of basically watching someone cook your food that wasn't professionally trained and then to have the mishap with the drunken boyfriend - we might just go out to dinner at a restaurant instead.

Cooking classes, vintage housewares, upscale cooking products, gourmet food items - everything a good cook needs. Light and spacious store. Gorgeous displays and windows. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Reasonable and appropriate prices. Do yourself a favor and stop here.

I went to a couples cooking class with a friend (because our significant others didn't want to go lol), and we had a great time! We learned to cook lobster bisque, crab cakes, and baked fish. Everything tasted great and the chef there was so funny. We will be returning for more classes in the future!
