Size Matters

JUST CHECK OUT those XXL gas ranges at my new digs, GIA Kitchen, the “incubator” kitchen in St Paul.  Talk about sexy, spacious, stainless steel heaven!  Doesn’t this make you home cooks drool?  All that counter space makes me swoon.

And, this is only one of THREE prep rooms, one of which is designated gluten-free. Yes, more counters and sinks. Can you stand it?  I’m even not including photos of the various walk-in freezers and coolers.

This is what I’ve been dreaming about. Now I’ll be able to handle more delivery & catering clients! And, hopefully, I can start offering cooking classes here next year!

Mark your calendars! GIA Kitchen is holding another HOLIDAY FOOD FAIR on SUN DEC 2, 2pm – 5pm.  It’s a great opportunity to sample tasty treats from local food entrepreneurs as well as see this facility for yourself. We’ll be offering Special Holiday Sales, too. One whole room will feature Gluten-Free products!  

Please see Nov 5 post “Incubating Good Food” for more photos of me and other fellow food entrepreneurs at GIA’s first Food Fair on Nov 2, 2012.

I’ve posted a few more photos of the kitchen on my Facebook page — go to  — “Like” and Share!  I post news, pics and cooking tips daily.
