Scottsdale, AZ-based Sweet Basil Gourmetware and Cooking School recently celebrated 27 years in business.
The store originally opened in 1993 and is owned by Martie Sullivan. It began selling kitchenware and housewares, but soon expanded so that Sullivan could add cooking classes. Now, the store also boasts a market café, which serves food and bakery items that are made in-house, as well as a coffee club.
Sweet Basil regularly hosts cooking classes featuring in-house and local chefs, as well as industry influencers. Sullivan is also regularly featured on local news outlets, sharing her culinary expertise.
