Outdoor Kitchen Design Classes at NKBA Chapter Meetings

Chris Mordi, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet | 05/07/2012 | Design, Continuing Education

Outdoor kitchens represent a meaningful growth opportunity for many design professionals, including kitchen designers. Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet has taught a number of classes on outdoor kitchen design for a variety of professional associations.

Our educational materials have been developed out of experience with hundreds of outdoor kitchens, and from a desire to encourage great design that delivers wonderful experiences for homeowners. Most recently, I spoke at the NKBA Rocky Mountain Chapter meeting to more than 60 members, covering outdoor kitchen design basics and specific recommendations for making projects a resounding success. The response was overwhelmingly positive.

"I was exceptionally pleased with your NKBA presentation on outdoor kitchens last
Thursday in Fort Collins."
- Tim Clemens, Animas Kitchen & Bath LLC

"Just wanted to thank you for presenting 'How To Design an Outdoor Kitchen' last Thursday to the Colorado NKBA Chapter. It was extremely informative and have a project in the fall that I could use your knowledge for. My guest, who is a builder in the Mountains (around 9,000 feet), was also very impressed and we both got ideas we could easily implement." - Erica Kalkofen, Erica Kalkofen Designs, LLC

"After meeting you and enjoying your marvelous seminar last night at BAC on Outdoor Kitchen Design I wanted to follow up on our conversation. I would be very interested in becoming a Kalamazoo Gourmet Professional Partner..." - Lori Pivonka, Kitchens at the Denver
