Little Bites: Cooking School Needs Help to Open Its Doors



ichele Morris has worked for world champion chefs in Las Vegas and taught at the college level for over nine years. She's helped many students follow their dreams to become successful professional chefs. Now it's her mission to get kids and adults excited about cooking with hands-on cooking classes.

Morris' space, Kindred Creative Kitchen, has helped kids learn to make bread, introduced them to Italian cuisine and has shown them the art and science of making candies. But Morris wants to do more. She's been constrained by the space and equipment in the commercial spaces she's rented, so she's building a brick and mortar kitchen where Kindred Creative Kitchen can teach more kids and adults the joy of cooking. She's self funded the majority of the project, but now needs help from the community. She started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and hopes to raise the $10,000 she needs to finish the kitchen.

If you're interested in backing the project, you'll find incentives including a day at a kids' cooking camp or an adult cooking class. It's also a way to pre-pay for things including a chocolate truffle workshop or an introduction to French pastries, if you're interested in having a private cooking school in our community. Kindred Creative Kitchen will only receive the Kickstarter money if the project reaches its goal by Nov. 11.
