'Community Supported Kitchen' Idea Seeking Support in Portland
"In food circles, Northeast Portland's Cully neighborhood might be best known for two things: it's patchwork of urban farms, and the unlikely collection of quality restaurants lining Northeast 42nd Avenue," writes Zach Middleton. "A new food center coming to the old Delphina's Bakery seeks to unite these two elements with a restaurant, a bakery, a green grocer and more."
The article describes the concept as a "community supported kitchen," and it's the brainchild of Stacey Givens, an urban farmer and champion of the television show "Chopped."
"Once construction is complete, the space will function as a very well-equipped commissary kitchen, featuring both a massive walk-in fridge and freezer, an extensive cookbook library, double dish pits and a separated baker's stall — stuff some cooks who are used to the spartan confines of many commissary kitchens salivate over," writes Middleton.
