UAF's Extension Test Kitchen Available for Public Use
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 13, 2010
Fairbanks, Alaska—The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service is opening its test kitchen in Fairbanks for public use.
For an hourly fee, the Department of Environmental Conservation-certified facility is available for small, food-based businesses, caterers and one-time event food preparation. The idea is to aid entrepreneurs who are trying to get their businesses going but do not have access to a certified facility.
The kitchen contains two standard commercial ovens, a commercial refrigerator and freezer, a three-compartment sink, a hand-washing station, a prep station and ample counter space. Assistance with product development and generating nutrition fact labels is also available.
The kitchen is located in the Extension state office and will also continue to be available for food product development research.
For more information, contact kitchen manager Kate Idzorek at 907-474-5391 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
