Food costs are quickly approaching new heights, even locally. Certainly this is no news to anyone who has made a trip to the grocery store in the last couple of months. Being in the food business, food costs made a huge difference to my bottom line. Folks at home tend to think only of their soaring grocery costs, not those of the businesses they use.
Yesterday's Washington Post had a great article by food critic Tom Sietsema on how Washington area restaurants are handling the problem. Here's a link if you want to check it out: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/15/AR2008041500778.html
At The Kitchen Studio, we're working hard to keep our costs in control so that no price increases are necessary as we weather this hopefully temporary storm. Rest assured, our customers and students will continue to receive the excellent quality fresh food that we are known for. We're not going to skimp just because it hurts a bit in the pocketbook right now. We're proud of the food we offer, both in classes AND Make It, Take It, Bake It! (and soon to be coming Chippa Chippa Bloem Bloems!) and promise the same great quality at the same great price.
