JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, April 8, 2024 / — Leading kitchen and culinary retailer Sur La Table held its grand opening Saturday, April 6 at Highland Village in Jackson, marking the brand’s first location in Mississippi. In place of a traditional ribbon cutting, Sur La Table holds a baguette breaking to celebrate the opening of each new location. For Saturday’s ceremony, Jackson’s own Broad Street Bakery & Cafe donated a 6-foot long baguette for the Sur La Table team to break.

Brought together by an appreciation for food, exploring new experiences, and commitment to community, Sur La Table and Highland Village have teamed up to offer locals the resources they need to elevate their cooking, whether with tools for the home, skills gathered in Sur La Table’s kitchen, or inspiration from SLT’s collections, recipes, online guides and more. 

“We could not be more delighted to welcome Sur La Table to Highland Village,” said Alexandra Clark, WS Development Senior Vice President, Asset Strategy and Experience. “The excitement from our community has been palpable since we announced Sur La Table was opening a location here a few months back. We are proud to bring such a well-respected and exciting brand to our guests.”

Since debuting its first shop at Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market in 1972, Sur La Table has become an experiential destination for those passionate about cooking and entertaining. The retailer specializes in sales of quality cookware and tabletop entertaining products, while offering a robust cooking-class program tailored to adults as well offerings for younger cooks (age 7+). With frequent in-store events and demonstrations at locations in more than 20 states across the nation, Sur La Table provides customers with knowledge as well as enjoyment. With their cooking-class calendar – including seats for their 2024 Kids and Teens Summer Series — already posted on their website, you can even begin booking seats early.

“So much work has gone into opening our first location in Mississippi and we are thrilled to officially open our doors today,” said Jordan Voloshin, Sur La Table CEO. “Jackson has such an impressive culinary scene, and we have been overwhelmed by the welcoming response we’ve already received from both the restaurant community as well as our neighbors here at Highland Village. We feel right at home and look forward to being a small part of the culinary journeys of so many in the Jackson area.”
