What is Basque cuisine?

The gastronomy of Basque Country is one of the most famous in the world, but it is more than a kind of food, it is a philosophy.  Kaixo Gourmet makes all of their dishes fresh and from scratch using local and organic products.  By combining these techniques with Basque food culture, Kaixo has created Basque fusion cuisine.

Meet YOUR team: Lutz/Wesley Chapel

Lutz, FL:  Jan  McNerney (pictured above left) started baking under the cottage food law; only to discover the limitations.  She was challenged by her son-in-law to find a commercial kitchen to use for her baking business.  Jan and her husband Jack McNerney (pictured above right) took it one step further when they set up a meeting with owner/founder of Your Pro Kitchen, Cindy Pickering and toured her Largo kitchen.  Pickering wanted a Your Pro Kitchen in Pasco County.   Her dream to expand was a perfect fit for the McNerneys.

November 2014, Your Pro Kitchen, Lutz/Wesley Chapel opened for business.
