Detroit vegan chef and blogger Quiana Broden is planning a new food incubator and live demo kitchen in Midtown.
Called The Kitchen, the space at 6529 Woodward will serve as a culinary classroom of sorts where vegans and meat lovers can hone their culinary skills; a place for businesses and individuals to rent a shared commercial kitchen; and as a place where people can rent private dining space.
Broden, who developed the healthy living brand Cooking with Que,
says in a release that she is focused on teaching people to eat healthier with an emphasis on plant-based food.
The Kitchen is "designed to help people of all ages build sustainable healthy cooking habits, especially those just starting out," Broden says. "It is a platform to promote a more plant-based, eat-to-live mentality for the community through the art of food, all from preparation to presentation."
Broden started the Cooking with Qu
e brand after being diagnosed with sarcoidosis and dairy allergies 10 years ago. She chose to search for alternative holistic methods and recipes, as opposed to taking doctor-recommended steroids every day for the rest of her life.
Broden and The Kitchen were recipients of a $60,000 Motor City Match grant.
