Diane Burry has opened The Kitchen @ 1001 in her home at Woodley and Division. Her flyer (PDF) on the community kitchen/farmer’s incubator reads:

Do you want to make jams, jellies, pies and other yummy things? Come and use our kitchen!

If you want to sell your creations, we provide a kitchen from that meets the MN Department of Agriculture requirements as a “licensable kitchen”, with NFS equipment, the correct types of sinks, a hood system with an ANSUL fire suppression system, etc. so that the food preparer can be licensed by the MN Department of Agriculture to process food for retail sales. The kitchen itself is not licensed. Floform recently did a kitchen renovation for us.

We are renting out time in the kitchen at a rate of $15/hour through the end of 2010. The fee is due on the date of use.

Diane’s other business is DUX International which “provides high quality Japanese/English translation and interpreting for US companies working with Japanese companies, on a short-term contract basis.”

    Today’s Marketplace Morning report: Rentable kitchens make LA food businesses a reality

    Brown opened Big Man Bakes last year, after he lost his job at a tech company. Andrea Bell owns the space Brown rents. It’s a culinary incubator called Chef’s Kitchens. She started it in the 1980s and it was the first business like it. There are more than 70 similar incubators around the country today. Bell’s clients pay $17 to $25 an hour, and they make everything from street cart tamales to diet meals for movie stars. Bell says incubators minimize startup cost. Cooks can jump in without much capital, or professional training, then grow a business. But she says it’s not easy to turn your recipes into a living.
