As the year winds down and our holiday activities (and cooking) ramp up, we are pleased to send along our December news and update you on our activities.
With all that our team is doing in the community, it is a good time to remind everyone of our primary mission and focus :
Our vision is to empower culinary entrepreneurship across Cape Cod and we are doing that via education, connecting with the community, and providing shared-use commercial kitchen facilities for Cape Cod Food Industry entrepreneurs.
Obviously, getting the kitchen in place is the highest priority (and toughest challenge given funding and finding the right type of facility) so that we can serve those who need it from food product makers to chefs, caterers and food trucks. We continue to look at spaces and negotiate some possibilities. Until that time, you will find us doing some of the secondary activities including holding classes and workshops. Bringing consumers into the mix with classes helps build awareness for our mission and brings attention to the many local food makers creating interesting products. Hence you will see us posting some recipes like those from Chef Alan and the articles on some of our local food makers.
It is all part of the culinary community and we hope you enjoy.
Cooking Classes Begin!
On December 5th, we held our first cooking class at KAM Appliances with Chef Alan hosting a great group in a hands-on experience. Some great holiday side dishes were created and it was a fun time with the ‘students’ taking their creations home.
Our next class will be held Saturday, January 12th.
We are grateful for some members of our community coming forward to volunteer & help us. We could use some additional help in Marketing. If interested, please contact Harry Henry - firstname.lastname@example.org
Taste of the Cape!
Plans are moving forward for our event on April 25, 2019 at the Willowbend in Mashpee. “Taste of the Cape, an evening of Culinary Excellence” promises to be a mouth watering delight.
We are lining up 4 chefs from across the Cape (plus an out of town celebrity chef). You will see and hear more about this over the coming months.
