At The Gifted Kitchen, we are committed to being the beating heart of our Longview/Kelso community – a place for Southwest Washington folks of all kinds to gather, celebrate, create, and get inspired.

The Gifted Kitchen launched in 2014 as a home-based business offering an array of culinary services, including personal chef, cooking classes, meal planning, cottage food sales, and more. As the business grew and gained more & more customers, we felt commercial space was the best way to adapt to customer demands and increased volume. In this commercial spot, our primary focus has become our gourmet grab & go market as well as our open teaching kitchen that welcomes more friends and gives us ideal space to host on-site catered events.
Our friendly neighborhood kitchen, located at 711 Vandercook Way in Longview, WA, proudly offers a fridge loaded with tasty, grab & go options for busy consumers on the run who are looking for complete convenience. We also provide customers the only cooking classes in the area where students, of all ages, can learn in a fun, yet professional, atmosphere and enjoy amazing, hands-on experiences.

- Signature sandwiches, wraps & salads
- Assorted desserts & snacks (cookies, candies, nuts, chips, etc.)
- Made-from-scratch, heat & eat side dishes & entrees
