Food is a deep, fascinating world with a wealth of possibilities. From Sous Vide to Pickling, High Pressure to Slow Cookers, Beer to Xantham Gum and all the places inbetween.
The problem is it can be hard for food hobbiests to persue their delicious experiments. Equipment is hard to find (or costly), kitchen size is limited, friends and family don't appreciate it.
What if there was a place where food makers, beer brewers, cabbage picklers and gustatory mad scientists could come together to share ideas, knowledge and techniques, use commercial style facilities for pet projects (Or even kick-starting a food business!) and play with noms as long as their hearts desire?
Well, there isn't.
Which just means we'll have to make it happen ourselves!
The Brisbane FoodLab is intended to be all the above, and more. A subscription based space'n'toys, leaning more towards supporting member projects then being a rentable kitchen for catering. Basically, it would function like a http://​www.hackerspace.org/ but for food. We'll also give it a better name.
If you want to make it happen, and bootstrap what might be the first food-lab in the world aimed at everycooks, come along to the kickoff meeting, and bring ideas, enthusiasm and a preference for Getting Stuff Done.
We'll meet somewhere it's easy to get drinks, get fed, and talk, where we don't have to book a table and parking is cheap: Stones Corner Hotel. Please invite all your food-making kimchi-fermenting gastronomy-moleculizing friends.
