In November, 1996 Cooks Pots & Tabletops was established and founded on the concept of cooking with friends and family....sharing tables with people we love. Thus, the passion for the store was born and continues all these years later. The staff at Cooks Pots & Tabletops is dedicated to offering the highest level of education we can possibly provide. Our food sources are organic and sustainable when possible and we love to work with the local producers and farmers of our area. We invite these hard working foodies to join us in the kitchen and share their knowledge with you our students and fellow cooks and all share the same goal...a passion for good food, easily prepared and easily enjoyed.
