For rent: commercial kitchen space
Cooks who dream of opening a catering business or marketing a food item often lack the money to outfit a commercial kitchen.
Jenny Bailey, an owner of Bailey's Café, 39 South Main Street, Winchester, has commercial kitchen space for rent. It's available after 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and any time Sunday. Call Bailey at (859) 771-0573.Kathy Yelton, co-owner of Chipotle Chicks, will offer a food tasting of Kentucky chipotle sauce and hot pepper jelly from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 5 at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea.
Yelton grew up in Northern Kentucky with a mother who loved growing tomatoes. Yelton started her own tomato garden when she and her husband settled on a farm in Pendleton County. She also grew peppers. After she bought a smoker, Yelton began to experiment with smoking and drying vegetables, including jalapeño peppers. In 1999, she created a special sauce using her hickory-smoked jalapeño peppers.
Then along came Sheila DeSimio, who was growing vegetables organically on her Augusta farm and selling produce to area chefs. She had tasted Yelton's chipotle sauce in 2004, and her enthusiasm for the product led her to join Yelton to produce a line of sauces, salsas and jellies made from produce grown in their gardens.
You can sample Chipotle Chicks' products at Kentucky Artisan Center, 975 Walnut Meadow Road, just off Interstate 75 at Exit 77 in Berea.
