The C.O.O.K. Alliance is the leading voice for home food entrepreneurs in the United States. Our groundbreaking 2018 home cooking legislation (AB 626) created a ?Microenterprise Home Kitchen? permit in California? the first of its kind in the nation. As a result, California counties may begin permitting home cooks to sell all types of prepared foods to the public beginning January 1, 2019. We expect many other states to quickly follow California?s lead.
