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). The Rojahn Performance Kitchen is available to rent for meeting space or to market your culinary business to Central Market patrons. 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.

  • Unexpected Cuisine: Pop-Up Dinners Abound in Central PA

    Fly Magazine
    June 29, 2015 By: Erin Dorney
    The essence of a pop-up dinner is a temporary, communal meal served in a place that doesn’t normally host dinners. They sometimes focus on a certain theme or concept and are held in nontraditional locations like art galleries, co-ops, co-working spaces, teaching kitchens, bars, grocery stores, movie theaters or even outside. Pop-up dinners have been hosted in these very venues throughout Lancaster and York over the past three years.
