Lorenn commented on Public Kitchen

I like the idea of a space where people are comfortable enough to go to
a) use communal equipment
b) learn/get advice on how to cook

Essentially, the kitchen is a community-building mechanism that can then be leveraged for a whole host of "add-ons".

Some of these add-ons have already been discussed such as involving local chefs in tutorials etc. Another idea could be involving the traditional "too busy to cook" category of people through the idea of crowd-sourcing your dinner. By this I mean use the kitchen as a tool/space to entice people to form groups that take turns in cooking/connecting/learning about food and share their food (and experiences) with others!
