Are you a backyard barbeque guru? A cupcake curator? Do you have a secret recipe that surpases the magic sauce found on the Big Mac? Do you want to start selling your creative cousine but find your kitchen is too small or you don’t have the money to buy the expensive machinary you need?  The Collaborative Kitched Space would be an opportunity for community members and entrepreneurs to rent out kitchen space for a few days or hours.

Perhaps it could even include an incubation space as well.  See this article for more ideas that could be included in this Kitchen Space: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/06/nyregion/a-taste-of-long-island-a-commercial-kitchen-with-a-built-in-market.html?_r=0
