ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the largest public commercial kitchens in the Southeast is open for business in South Georgia, and they want to put you in business selling your favorite dishes. They provide the utensils, and a certified kitchen. All you have to bring is the food.

A chef for more than 40 years. "Chicago, Florida, Texas." Chef Count Charles wants to get back in the kitchen. "Your imagination limits the menu," he said.

Chef Count likes to prepare gourmet foods and sauces and now is even planning to sell a few of his famous recipes. "I'm planning on marketing some special sauces, along with doing some personal chef catering from here."

Food safety regulations prevent him from selling foods cooked in his own kitchen, but he can come here to the East Baker County Commercial Kitchen, which meets all state and federal standards.  Shirley Sherrod said, "We have not had this type of facility anywhere in Southwest Georgia that I know of that's open to the public."

The kitchen has all the appliances and cooking utensils. All you need to do is bring the food and your favorite recipe.  Manager David Milliner said, "This is a wonderful opportunity. People can actually build something for their kids and grand kids. It's something that we really want people to take advantage of."

Once you develop and make the recipe, your food is sent off to the University of Georgia for testing. Then the kitchen manager will help you market and sell your product.  Sherrod said, "It's more than just making something in the kitchen. You can actually try and start your own business from right here in the kitchen."

A business where the only thing at "steak", is the meat on the grill. You can rent the kitchen for $20 an hour. For more information, call 291-0466.
