The Coastal Cupboard

When it came time to design The Coastal Cupboard’s demo kitchen, owner Brad Pitner shied away from industrial-grade appliances, opting instead for the kind of layout you’d find in your average home kitchen. That decision reflects the Cupboard’s mission to make gourmet cooking accessible to all.

To that end, Mr. Pitner and his staff of gourmands stock a vast selection of cooking gadgets, bakeware, and cutlery by top-tier brands such as Zwilling, J.A. Henckels, and Kuhn Rikon. Staff members are happy to walk customers through each product’s function and share their own favorite gadgets and dish towels with sentimental value. They also stock gourmet foods such as small-batch wines, baking mixes, sauces, and rubs.

Customers have a chance to see those tools and ingredients in action during the store’s weekly cooking classes. Most are led by in-house chef Stephen Harman, who tailors his class offerings to suit the interests of customers. “He’s ridiculously talented—he’s just fearless,” says owner Brad Pitner of the inveterate chef. That fearlessness has motivated Chef Harman to master dishes from paella to pad thai. But his true passion is for Lowcountry farm-to-table items. “He’s obsessed with local agriculture,” says Mr. Pitner. “If he can get it local, he’ll get it local.”
