Kitchen in the Market gets cooking in new space
In a corner of Midtown Global Market the new kitchen space glints stainless steel with cherry red accents. The recently expanded and upgraded Kitchen in the Market boasts enough space for six entrepreneurs to be working simultaneously in their commercially licensed space. It also has an area for cooking demos, classes, and retail shelf space.
Molly Herrmann & Tracy Morgan toast their Kitchen in the Market
"The space is designed to be open. It's part of the philosophy for Kitchen in the Market," says Molly Herrmann of Tastebud catering, who developed Kitchen with Tracy Morgan of Segnavia Creative consulting, with help from the Homegrown Minneapolis project.
Last night the space opened to the public, and we were invited to take a tour.

Elsewhere on the tour we sampled a luscious organic egg salad topped with a just-heated-enough sweet dollop of habenero jelly. Meringues like softly lobbed snowballs speckled with dark chocolate shards wrapped in a crimson cherry kiss. Tender coins of seawater sweetened scallops atop a ruby grapefruit tart mingled with the light anise crunch of fennel salad. Glasses of champagne with fizzing sugar cubes were spiked with exotic vanilla-spiced bitters. Even glasses of water were dressed up with evergreen-scented rosemary sprigs.
Each business represented a lovingly cultivated culinary dream as unique as the individual behind the apron. Kitchen in the Market has space for more cooks. Join them this weekend for more events. Find Kitchen in the Market on Facebook or Twitter for more information.
