New Sur La Table offers 99-cent cooking classes in May

Want to fill your life with cooking classes without blowing too much money?

To mark the open of a bigger location in SouthPark that includes a cooking-class space, Sur La Table is putting its classes on sale for 99 cents through the end of May.

From May 17-31, you can take hands-on classes like “Easy Thai Cooking,” “Spring Macarons” and “Girl’s Night Out: Great Spring Cooking” that usually cost $59 to $79 for 99 cents.

The special price ends May 31, but the list of classes through early July has been posted. They’re taught by a team of chef-instructors who work for the store. Most are 2 to 2 1/2 hours long and times include mornings and evenings.

The opening date for the new store is expected to be May 2, and the kitchen will open about May 15. Sur La Table’s original store in SouthPark didn’t have room for cooking classes, but the new store will be 6,000 square feet.

Class space is limited and registration is required. For a list of classes and registration, go to, choose “cooking classes” and selection the Charlotte location.
