Our history

In 1972, Shirley Collins opened the first Sur La Table in Seattle's Pike Place Market.

Since then, we've grown and had plenty of fun along the way:
• In 1974, we gave the brand new Cuisinart food processor its West Coast debut
• We opened our second store in Berkeley, California, in 1995.
• Our cooking class program kicked off with a sizzle in 1996.
• Food & Wine magazine named us one of the best shops in America in 2005.
• We published our first book, Things Cooks Love, in 2008
• We had a good laugh being spoofed on an episode of "South Park" in 2009.
• Our 100th store opened in White Plains, New York, in 2012.
