welcome to Your NEIGHBORHOOD kitchen

 

 

Into cooking? We are, too. 

In fact, we're kind of crazy about it. There's something addictive about turning ingredients into sustenance, and sharing your creations with people you love. There's a reason why everyone gathers in the kitchen. It's the beating heart of every home.  BLVD Kitchen aims to be the heart of our Sherman Oaks neighborhood, and a place for Los Angeles cooks of all kinds!  

Who's cooking here?

YOU ARE.

Try one of our casual, hands-on cooking classes, or come in and cook with your family, friends and neighbors for Community Sunday Supper.  Got an idea or a group? Let us create a cooking event just for you

WE Are.

Stop in weekdays to grab a fresh-baked after school snack from Mom in the Mail.  Treat yourself or a friend to luscious house-made caramels and brittles from DEW Foods, delicious artisan foods from Kid Doc JJ, or other selections to eat now or make later from our bountiful BLVD Sweet Shop and Larder. Our BLVD TO YOU team does amazing gift baskets and catering, so contact us for creative ideas for office meetings and celebrations for groups large and small.  

PROS ARE.

We rent our commercial kitchen space to caterers, food entrepreneurs, chefs, bloggers, and other food pros on an hourly, daily, or longer-term basis. The space may also be booked for private events. Call or email us for details and kitchen rental availability, and add your name to our roster of great BLVD community members.  

 One-of-a-kind gifts, often created by local residents.

AND THERE'S EVEN MORE IN STORE. 

Stop into our shop, and find unique kitchen gifts and ideas, all tested and loved by us. Browse a selection of hand-picked cookbooks, with recommended recipes already bookmarked. Ask anyone for advice. We'll be thrilled to help.

MEET The OWNER

Me and Rachel at the opening.jpg

Hi. I'm your BLVD Proprietor, Sharon Graves, the curly-haired dreamer on the right there. I still can't quite believe that BLVD Kitchen is a real place and I get to come here and bake cookies for people every day, but it's true. I'm proud, nervous, "financially insane"*, and beside myself with joy over this exciting venture. 

Am I a professional chef? Well, now that I work in this giant commercial kitchen, maybe. But I consider myself more of an enthusiastic and accomplished** cook who has managed, at last, to turn a lifelong love of sharing, teaching and learning about food into a business that feels like coming home when I walk in the door. 

Here at BLVD, my primary job is to welcome other people into this home we're creating.  I want everyone - chefs, students, shoppers, neighbors - to walk in and get that same happy, "lucky me!" feeling.  There's a whole team of us here*** dedicated to making that happen, and we can't wait to have you come in and tell us if we are on the right track****.

MEET THE CHEFS

Hands down, an amazing place.

HEY! WATCH SHARON MAKE a WHOLE PIE in Less than 4 minutes ON tHE KTLA MORNING NEWS!


* This is a direct quote from my husband.

** I hit a trifecta at the KCRW Good Food Pie contest a while back (Best in Show, Best Fruit Pie and Best Crust) and make some of the best holiday cookies in town, according to the LA Times.

*** Part of the BLVD magic is how it attracts great people, like Jamie our marvelous shopkeeper, Sharon the queen of BLVD events, Kris, the steward of the kitchen, and the growing roster of brilliant chef-instructors you see on this page who also call BLVD home. Did I mention I love coming in here? They're a big part of the reason why.

**** FYI, we liberally sample our treats in the shop. We find that really helps with the making-people-happy thing.
