Whether by necessity or for fun, lots of people have started cooking and selling out of their home kitchens this past year. Here are 9 to try in Queens.
Every other day I seem to learn about another new home-based kitchen or chef in Queens—someone with or without professional cooking experience making something delicious for sale out of their apartment. Some of these home cooks are more organized than others, with a set menu, active social media presence, a physical food stand and/or delivery options. Others are more word-of-mouth: an email address and an undisclosed pickup location.
Certainly home-based chefs and kitchens existed, particularly in the immigrant communities of Queens, well before the Covid-19 pandemic. But this past year’s restaurant closings and skyrocketing unemployment rates have contributed to a surge of home-based kitchens, and I for one am here for it. Not to detract from our wonderful brick-and-mortar restaurants or established street vendors, but in a perfect world of the curious and the hungry, there’s room for everybody. And new variety on the dining scene only makes our existing diversity more exciting.
