Hands-on cooking and baking classes for all levels in Los Angeles

Student Spotlight: Crafted Kitchen

Two years ago, I was fortunate to run across "The Business of Food", offered at The Gourmandise School.

I wanted to build a shared commercial kitchen. I wanted it to be much more than simply a licensed kitchen under a roof, yet I didn't know where to begin. Had it not been for Clemence, my dream would never have materialized. With her expertise and insights, she helped me understand what, specifically, culinary artisans needed and what was missing in the marketplace. She worked with me to create a business plan that was market-driven and rock solid. From strategy to implementation, Clemence has been there every step of the way, and I can proudly say that her imprint is all over Crafted Kitchen. Take the class. You and your small food business will reap tremendous rewards.

I look forward to a continued partnership with Clemence and The Gourmandise School.”
