In 2011, Florida passed the Cottage Food Law, allowing people to prepare certain types of foods in their unlicensed home kitchens for sale to the public. This two-hour class will teach you everything you need to know about which types of foods can and cannot be produced in a home kitchen and why, how to label your products, where you can sell your food, food safety, and associated regulations.
