In an effort to be closer to their clients, Magnolia’s Dish it up! is expanding to Ballard. “They [customers] are hip foodies and we thought we should be right in the heart of where they shop – one of the best year round Farmer’s Markets in the Northwest – The Ballard Sunday Market,” owner Andrea Reith tells us. The space is right next to the new bar, Noble Fir, on Ballard Avenue.
Dish it up! offers things the at-home cook wants including cooking classes, skills classes, kitchen gadgets and an assortment of culinary gear. The new space is larger than the current one in Magnolia and the “cooking class stage will be twice as large and feature two completely decked out Viking Kitchens for side by side cook-off competitions and throwdowns,” Reith says. The events offered at Dish it up! include “a great line up of Sunday mini market cooking classes, regular evening & daytime cooking classes, kids cooking classes, technique classes plus book signings, winemakers events and more.”
The second arm of the business, Urban Kitchen Company, will also be in this space, featuring several model kitchens for people looking to remodel the kitchen in their small, older home or condo.
Reith is hoping to open later this fall.
