Do your insides jump for joy when you see a perfectly frosted cupcake or cookie? Or do you love the look of violet lavender syrup or a mouthwatering strawberry and lime jam? Or are you more of a savory person and melt when you see a jar of homemade salsa or seasoned nuts with just the right amount of spices?
If food excites you as much as it does me, you just might be a foodie. And in today's food-centered world, there is serious money to be made with your passion.
Food consumption has really changed in the past decade, and now more than ever, people want to know what's in their food, where it came from and who made it. That's bad news for businesses that mass produce food, but great news for those in the cottage food industry.
You see, in the past individuals who wanted to sell food were required to involve the state health inspectors and lease commercial kitchens in order to sell to the public. Obviously, that prevented a lot of people from pursuing their food dreams. But now many states have passed cottage food laws that are designed to give home chefs and bakers the right to produce products from their homes and sell them to the public.
I've opened and closed many businesses in my lifetime, and there's nothing I love more than taking an idea and turning it into a smoothly run, profitable business. And this book was born of that desire.

I found this book just in the nick of time. I was on the verge of giving up on my dream to earn a living selling food items I've created for others to enjoy. After listening to Sam Kerns book on How to Start a Home-Based Food business, I literally decided that day to start making my dreams come true. The book was so complete and helpful I actually started my own business the day after I finished the book. Highly recommended to anyone seeking to start a home based food business. Even for those who think they already know it all!
