Founder of Grateful Grahams Launches Kitchen Convos Series

Rachel DesRochers and the Northern Kentucky Incubator Kitchen (NKIK), announce Kitchen Convos, a new, exciting, and intimate series of live and recorded conversations with Greater Cincinnati’s foodpreneurs - people who have created a business in the food or beverage industry.

“We are community builders,” says DesRochers, founder of Grateful Grahams, NKIK, and The Hatchery. "Where do we all love to gather and share our stories? In the kitchen, of course. We are grateful to be able to open our kitchen doors and talk with some of the top names in the region. People who are doing really exciting and innovative things - growers, manufacturers, chefs, producers, writers, and farmers. We want all of the foodpreneurs in our area to have an outlet to share their story."

Each live event takes place the second Wednesday of each month at the NKIK in Covington. Admission is $5 and the doors open at 6:00pm. The conversation begins at 6:30.

The dialogue, as well as shorter interviews which feature both local and regional industry professionals, are available online at the NKIK website or as a podcast on iTunes at Kitchen Convos.
