So excited to be introducing the Kitchen Gadget Hub by Feisty Tapas.
A kitchen gadget lover's theme park.
A cookery school with a difference.
What is the Kitchen Gadget Hub by Feisty Tapas?
- Filming studio
- Test kitchen for recipe development
- Test kitchen for putting kitchen gadgets through their paces (yes, you'll be able to come do that in person in due time)
- A subscription
- And so much more
You can be a part of the Kitchen Gadget Hub wherever you are in the world.
The hub, like everything Feisty Tapas, will be very community-based.
I want to build it with you inside it and will be sharing my journey.
From buying a second hand kitchen to go in it and filling the empty shell that it now is to deciding what kitchen gadgets to take to it and which ones to leave at home (which is hard to decide, let me tell you!).
But let me tell you all about it personally in the video below!
This was a live I did in my Kitchen Gadgetry with Feisty Tapas group.
Where will the Kitchen Gadget Hub be based?
A lot of it will be online so, wherever you are in the world, you will be able to be a part of the Kitchen Gadget Hub by Feisty Tapas.
The physical location will be at the Saxon Business Park, in Ely, Cambridgeshire, England. Not far from Cambridge.
Ely is a beautiful town with a stunning cathedral, beautiful riverside, quaint little streets, a fantastic market on Thursdays and Saturdays (a smaller market on Sundays).

5th September 2021
Well, the second hand kitchen was transported to the hub on the 23rd and fitting started a few days later.
A whole lot of sockets were added too. It was necessary as there were no sockets above counter level but also, as all kitchen gadget lovers know, there are never enough sockets!
There has been dust, a lot of dust! But yesterday (4th September 2021), the floor started being fitted!
I popped in in the evening to check progress.
Actually, I was nervous that I had chosen totally the wrong flooring colour wise.
I wanted something with a light colour that would brighten up the hub.
Commercial flooring is expensive and not the prettiest but I was really pleased when I saw progress yesterday! Phew!
I can't wait to post a photo of it! Keep an eye on my social media and Facebook groups for updates
By the way, this is my favourite spot! As I only have those two "chairs", I've been working a lot from there.
I forgot to say, I also have wifi there now!
I was hotspotting with my phone having moved to an unlimited data plan (just as well I did) but the laptop loses connection every time it goes to sleep which makes it painful!
Online Launch Party
I'm planning an online launch party as soon as it's feasible. I can give you a tour of the place and tell you more about how we adapted a second hand kitchen into that space.
You can dress up... or not! Party hats encouraged.
Keep an eye out for the dates (and I'll update this post too).6
Good stuff, Maria! How exciting!
