Sylvan | Thirty to Open “Culinary Incubator” With Chef Sharon Hage as Culinary Curator

Oh my, what a great idea and perfect timing. Today comes word that an unnamed “culinary incubator,” a space to help start-up food entrepreneurs launch their own businesses, will open when Sylvan | Thirty opens next year. Local chef Sharon Hage will be the Culinary Curator. She is, in my book, the Earth Mother.

What a great fit. Hage will help local artisans and food businesses get up and running. The focus, naturally, will be on local start-ups and chefs upping their game. Participants will pay a membership to join. They will have access to a shared commercial kitchen and retail space which will enable them to sell their products without the initial expense of building out their own space. Cox Farms Market and Matador Meat & Wine have already signed on as neighbors at Sylvan | Thirty.

I think this culinary incubator needs a proper name. Shall we give it one?

  1. The Dallas Gourmet Co-op.

    It sounds like it is modeled after the old food cooperatives that used to be in my home town in the 1970’s. Brilliant idea. Wish it was at the Farmer’s Market.

  2. Des œufs d’oie. Just to hear how that will get pronounced by 99% of the people discussing it…

  3. Darn, have been waiting for Sharon to open up a new spot. Sigh, just call me selfish. Sounds like
    a ‘hot spot’ to me!
