Hi, I’m Dan, and I'd love your support in completing Tinker Kitchen, a new maker space for food hackers in San Francisco.
It's a great time to be a chef. As an engineer who loves cooking, I’m fascinated by all the new kitchen gadgets and cooking techniques that have become popular over the last few years. Sous vide machines, molecular gastronomy powders, liquid nitrogen ice cream, coffee roasters, fresh pasta extruders. Each time I walk into Sur La Table and Williams-Sonoma, or browse ChefSteps and Kenji Lopez-Alt’s food blog, I find fresh ideas, cuisines, and recipes just waiting to be cooked up.
I enjoy cooking in the comfort of my own kitchen. But sometimes I dream of having a fully stocked kitchen, with access to professional cooking equipment that's much larger and more expensive than the tools I own. It’s fun to experiment on my own, but it's way more fun to geek out over recipes, gadgets, and stories with other people who share my love of cooking.
