Culinary Residency Programs at The Archery 

The Culinary Residency programs were created in an effort to provide an opportunity for chefs and people in the food world that operates similarly to an artist residency. In exchange for work, the chef, baker, recipe tester, whomever, has the chance to refine a food concept, prepare for a restaurant launch, thoroughly test recipes from a cookbook, create a new food product, or play around in the kitchen. We encourage collaboration between the residents and other folks at the studio.

The Archery offers access to an equipped professional kitchen, onsite workshop, laser cutter, photo studio, event space, coffee roaster, and cafe.
