KITCHEN COLLECTIVE

Connecting people to food.

Our kitchen connects people to unique food experiences. These unique experiences arise from our access to incredible food, our belief in the congregative power of dining and the ongoing effort to balance evolution and consistency. We’ve created a space for people to gather and eat. While the chefs and cuisine change nightly the ability to break bread with neighbors is available every time we open for service. We combine food with art, music, film and community. Through this programming conversations spring up. We invite you to dine with us and to join in the dialog.

Collective? Yes. The food, the recipes, the concepts and the ideas that come from our kitchen come from a group of chefs. Some of the chefs cook often, some grace us with their presence just once. Some of the chefs are classically trained, some self-taught in their kitchen at home.

ABOUT

A lot of places try to put their twist on the taco. And many of us leave these joints wondering why they didn’t just hit us with the simple delicious & affordable taco found in so many other parts of the country. Corn tortilla, a little meat, a little veg, a little cilantro. Believe us we agree. Then we had Tommy’s deep fried tacos. Save your taco craving for Tuesday, we’ll put the hot sauce in your beer, you’ll get it.

ABOUT

Jeremy Bernozzi: “After traveling around Asia extensively, and spending a year teaching in Chengdu, China,  I became a convert of Asian food culture–and particularly, the mind-boggling diverse world of street food. I’m hoping to introduce people to some of the great foods that I’ve encountered around the world, but can’t find back home.”

Handmade food is run by Tommy Winrock. He's been cooking up dishes from around the world for 20 years. Always handmade from scratch! Recipes that are tried and true!
Jeremy Bernozzi: ``After traveling around Asia extensively, and spending a year teaching in Chengdu, China, I'm hoping to serve and introduce of the great foods that I've encountered across the world, but can't find in Vermont.``

Andrew Burke: ``Born and raised in Burlington, having graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and Cornell's School of Hotel Administration, I've worked across the country and across the food industry with everyone from Cornell Cooperative Extension, to the ChefStable Group in Oregon, and most recently at Misery Loves Co. I returned home to Vermont to continue exploring my love of local foods while having fun and incorporating the Japanese sense of balance.``

``It’s hard to believe we’ve been food trucking for four years now. There has been rain, wind, bugs, Mothra, and some folks so crazy it was like looking in a mirror – and that was a good day. The greatest joy has been bringing our Southern flavors to you good people of the North. So before I get choked up with emotion or sap, you best come see what I’m talking about.`` - Brian

Brian Stefan, owner of the infamous Southern Smoke food truck, continually brings the best flavors of the south to the good people of the north. Learn more about Brian and his creations here:
