What is Scratch Test Kitchen?
Scratch Test Kitchen is a cooking show geared towards helping people affected by food allergies find easy, fun, and delicious recipes that they can make at home. We know how hard it can be to work around allergies in the kitchen, especially when you’re a young adult living on your own or a parent who has more than one hungry and unique stomach to think about. We want to help you create meals that everyone can enjoy whether they have allergies or not!
Why should you help us?
An online search for cooking with food allergies will yield many groups, websites, and blogs that give recipes and support, but no cooking shows that guide you step by step through meals. No television network offers a show of its kind either! It seems crazy to think that with the recent dramatic rise in food allergies and intolerances that there is still this void, but we are confident that we can fill it.
This show isn’t just for people with food allergies—it’s a chance to raise awareness as a community that includes our friends and families. If you’ve ever tried to cook for someone with food allergies, it can be just as stressful as if you have them yourself. We’re here to help.
Each episode will take your requests for what specific allergies we focus on, favorite foods that you miss, or ideas for party foods that you can make and share with a whole group of people.
All donations will go towards producing our first season. This will include a full scale pilot episode that we can propose to networks and to allergy-friendly food companies for support, while we continue creating shorter online episodes.
Our budget goals are in place so we can maintain a level of professional quality that will allow Scratch Test Kitchen to grow and become the standard in food allergy cooking. Our film crew is comprised of professionals who have worked on national and international broadcast commercials and films. They have already donated their time to help make this Kickstarter video, and this budget will allow us to keep working with this talented crew. Along with the crew, we’ve got food to buy, a studio kitchen to rent, guest chefs to bring in, and other marketing costs.
We feel that this goal is realistic and reachable in order to produce a professional show series. Your help and donations are so very much appreciated; we know that this show can help so many people and we couldn't do it without your support.
Risks and challenges
The only risks we face are a delay in shooting schedule based on the availability of our crew and resources. Once funded, there is nothing to stop us from getting these shows up and out to the people we can help.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
