Over three years Smart Kitchen™ has refined and customized the approach specifically for the home market. The result is 'The Smartest Way to Learn to Cook like a Chef, from the Comfort of Your Own Home. ™' They have put all this proprietary education online because their goal is to spread culinary knowledge as far as possible. They want people to improve their gastronomic experiences, build their palettes, save money on eating out (by cooking in), and create more healthful meals for themselves and their families. And it is catching on. They are growing quickly from a small staff of chefs, technologists and business people. You'll notice in their biographies that they are either poor portrait photographers or not about that. It is the latter. They are not about egos or celebrities. They try to focus on the techniques, ingredients and end product in all things, even their portraits.
