Plumbing, electric, induction, convection, arranging … re-arranging. You name it. It's happening at the Pixie Scout Kitchen. Thanks to the generous gifts of so many family members, friends, neighbors and strangers! we are now completing what we started in January … a production kitchen outfitted to meet the growing demands of events, suppers and culinary workshops!
In the meantime … we cook!
Friends Family Countrymen -- we are FUNDED! As we close in on the final moments of our 30 Day Kickstarter Campaign to raise $25K for the buildout of our new Kitchen in Crown Heights, we are truly blown to bits of grateful glitter by the generosity and the support and the LOVE you all have poured over our lives this month. It's CRAZY. We are so excited to begin making this Kitchen the stuff of dreams and we promise to keep you posted on the developments. Be sure to check out our new WALL OF FAME under the "Contributors" page. We are so proud to share our producer page with over 125 Kickstarter Backers.
The Count Down is on … with less than one week to go on our Kickstarter Campaign we just want to say a huge thank you to all the efforts of SO MANY AWESOME PEOPLE!! If you think of anyone we haven't reached in these last days … please please let them know! Every little bit counts and we are SO CLOSE to the 25K goal.
As many or most of you know … we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the remaining funds needed to build out our kitchen … we set our goal at $25,000 and we are more than HALF WAY THERE with more than half a month of time remaining!! This is FANTASTIC and we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the 70+ souls that have made this a reality. Coming soon to our website will be a more permanent wall of fame in our "Contributors" section. But for now … we tip our caps to:

And we already have our first guest … this 200 lb pig arrived the day we turned on our box! Timing is everything, say some. Not my timing but Thine, say I. We are ever grateful as all these little details fall into place. Our "box" is 12 ft long and 8 ft wide and it has a brand new compressor … haven't named her yet, but we are pretty certain it's a she.
Today we signed the lease on a beautiful space in the "Monti Building." This building is a restored commercial property dating back to the 1800's when it served as the Nassau Brewery and later … a HEINZ factory … a happy serendipity for us Pittsburgh natives. We now have 1,100 sq feet of poured concrete floors, big windows, exposed beams and white washed brick walls for our new studio and tasting room.
Over the next few months watch as we grow into our new home … outfit it with state-of-the-art kitchen equipment … and polish it up for hosting family, friends and clients. This is an exciting NEXT STEP for The Pixie and The Scout. We are convinced that this new space will allow us to do what we've been doing on a whole new scale. That means outrageously delicious food, responsibly sourced & harvested, served with a sparkle x 10.
