In 1972, the first Sur La Table store opened in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. It was a place where serious cooks found a surprising selection of culinary tools from around the world, with helpful, knowledgeable employees who loved cooking, too.
We’ve now grown to more than 100 stores across America, with a website and catalog viewed by millions of people each year and a highly regarded cooking class program. But some things haven’t changed: we’re still the place for an unsurpassed selection of exclusive and premium-quality goods for the kitchen and table. We’re still passionate about cooking and entertaining, eager to share all we know.
We're a useful resource for those eager to learn and keep learning. With instructional kitchens in more than 50 locations, ours is the largest avocational cooking school in the United States.
