We are looking to fund our own commercial kitchen in order to teach cooking classes,host community events, and supper clubs.

Our Goal: The Kitchen - A Cooking School For Everyone 

Our current space limits us to one class per week, but with our own kitchen we would be able to diversify our class offerings to fit the needs of our entire community. We would also bring all the Pacific Northwest foodie awesomeness under one roof - vintners, brewers, artisan food crafters, and the seasonal bounty offered by the Willamette Valley. Beyond cooking classes, the kitchen would give us the flexibility to experiment with product offerings, supper clubs and a community food space that could be offered to non-profits.

Thank you to Good Keuken  

About Us: Chefs, Teachers and Food Entrepreneurs/Restaurateurs 

Our passion is food. Whatever the venue - television shows, supper clubs, restaurants, our family dinner table - the driving force has always been teaching. As chefs/educators, we want to provide our community with the skills and knowledge of how to provide better food for themselves and their families. Our classes would offer a wide variety of topics, everything from basic nutrition and home economizing to knife skills and gourmet ingredients. We aim to provide a spectrum of food knowledge while keeping things fun and entertaining.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We have faced many challenges in our business over the years everything from fighting guests, flooding, theft, naked employees, and the list goes on and on.

Each of these challenges taught us something new about the business and helped us to do a better job moving forward. The expansion of the kitchen will bring with it it’s own set of challenges such as filling seats, construction delays, and working with new purveyors. We feel the experiences we have had over our twenty plus years will help us deal with these challenges and face them head on.
