The Test Kitchen is a hobby that makes no money and no value can be exchanged for attending. (We may on occasion charge a venue fee for the rental) It is unrefined, yet well executed. So come explore the food, each other, and bring something liquid (or a toy for the dog and cat).


Most of the food I cook is focused on feeding more than one to two people. I believe food acts as a great catalyst that brings people together. 


Many of the recipes use more modern equipment like Sous Vide machines and electric pressure cookers. However, you'll find a fair amount of traditional style cooking as well.


The test kitchen has a small community that attend the events every week. These people serve as taste testers, friends, and are all around smart folks.
