Life happens in the kitchen. That’s our belief and we’re sticking to it.

For 37 years, Cooks has been Twin Cities leader in all things culinary. From pots and pans to gadgets, recipes to James Beard award winning books, international chefs to local sommeliers, tea to sides of beef, grilling to cake decorating, if it happens in town, chances are – it happened here first. Heck, Martha even had an espresso bar in the window of our Grand Avenue store in 1989 – 5 years before Starbucks ever started its journey to becoming a global brand!

We love what we do and we won’t rest until you feel like you’re a part of our family. Life really does happen in the kitchen.
