What is YorKitchen?


YorKitchen is a shared commercial kitchen incubator available for rent which consists of two physical parts the Rojahn Performance Kitchen (pictured on the left) and the Production Kitchen (pictured on the right).

It is also where we have cooking demonstration and kids' activities. The Production Kitchen is available to rent by those starting or expanding a culinary business. It is also available for private parties, preparing for private events and dinners. Our special events like 21South and the Chef Challenges are also held in this area.
