Culinary co-working space Forage Kitchen launches with a public opening as part of Oakland’s First Fridays. Founded by cousins and food entrepreneurs Iso Rabins and Matt Johansen, this incubator for startup food businesses provides kitchen workspace, a communal office area, and business resources. Rabins and Johansen hope to create a community of working chefs, novices, and food lovers who can energize and inspire one another. Later this month, Forage Kitchen will also open a café where members can test public reaction to new recipes and dining concepts. RSVP to the First Friday event to be automatically entered into a raffle to win two tickets to a Second Sunday Family Meal on October 9. Free. Info and RSVP: here
