Kitchen Conservatory

Kitchen Conservatory is expanding.

Kitchen Conservatory is about to get a whole lot bigger. 

The cooking school and kitchen store announced on Facebook last week that the plan for a new Kitchen Conservatory building in Brentwood, Missouri, was approved by the city's aldermen. It will replace a vacant bowling alley on Manchester Road next to Carl's Drive-In.

Kitchen Conservatory's culinary and event director Marianne Moore says that although the current facility at 8021 Clayton Road is in a good location, the Brentwood location will be even more central to people from all over St. Louis county. 

"We felt that it was time to make the move," she says. 

The new location will feature three kitchens, a big expansion from the previous location. 

"We've got a huge demand for cooking classes, which is so exciting that people want to get back in the kitchen and learn how to cook," she says. 

Moore hints at Kitchen Conservatory hosting some outdoor events as well, but no other details have been released. 

With the plans newly approved, the move is still quite a ways away. The building will be entirely new construction, so the estimated opening of the location is about a year away.
