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!

THREE HOURS and COUNTING...

getting ready to LAUNCH PARTY it up...

16 ft tables … hauling dishes … cement screws … pimento cheese … braising pork … you name it. Can't wait to have all our family and friends break in our new space!

men at work

as Tom and Jacob put the finishing touches on the walk-in, Jonathan and Katy challenge the chemistry of their relationship putting together speed racks and work tables... No, Ladies. They didn't come with assembly instructions!

walk in … REFRIGERATOR is here!

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. 

Load 'em in

Things are happening … this week we purchased a 3-Compartment Sink and began installation of our very own Walk-In Refrigerator… stay tuned to see images of the final construction!!

eyes on the prize

First things first.

We have signage [ woohoo ] and, thanks to Katy's hoarding eye, an antique welcome chest.

So hang up your coat and take a Pixie Scout Postcard … or maybe a Pixie Scout MARKET TOTE!
