welcome to Your NEIGHBORHOOD kitchen
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. Our hope is that BLVD Kitchen becomes the heart of our Sherman Oaks neighborhood, and the soul of a community of cooks in Los Angeles.
Who's cooking here?
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.
Stop in weekdays to grab a bowl of house-made soup, some bread, or 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, a cake pop from Lollibakes, delicious treats from Calabasas Candy Company, or other selections to eat now or make later from our bountiful BLVD Sweet Shop and Larder. We do great gift baskets and catering, so contact us for creative ideas for office meetings and celebrations for groups large and small.
We rent our commercial kitchen space to caterers, food entrepreneurs, 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.
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.

Su Sunday Supper guests only
We are often open later if class is in session.
Intimate, tasty, hands-on, and a lot of fun, BLVD cooking classes are a great way to learn new skills and meet new people.
One Sunday a month, we open the kitchen for a community supper session. We set up a menu and give you the option to cook the appetizer, entree, side dish or dessert in teams. All ingredients and materials provided, BYOB of choice. Everyone eats together as the meal progresses through the evening. Make good food and great friends!

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****.
* This is a direct quote from my husband.
*** Part of the BLVD magic is how it attracts great people, like Jamie our marvelous shopkeeper, Jenni the queen of BLVD events, and the growing roster of brilliant chef-instructors, like Darryl, JJ and Michal, 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 cookies and ice cream in the shop. We find that really helps with the making-people-happy thing.
