Purpose of the Domestic Kitchen Rules:
The purpose of these rules is to allow individuals using domestic kitchens to prepare, manufacture and sell non-potentially hazardous foods to the public, while ensuring that the public health is protected by compliance with these rules and inspections by the Department of Agriculture.

Please note:
If you are in a catering business or are interested in starting a catering business (e.g., made-to-order birthday cakes, wedding cakes, etc.) this course is not a requirement for your business. For that type of business, you need to contact your local Health Department. Also, if you are interested in manufacturing foods that are considered "potentially hazardous," the Domestic Kitchen Rule does not allow these to be produced in a home kitchen. A partial list of common foods that are potentially hazardous and not allowed to be manufactured under the Domestic Kitchen Rule includes: salsa, pickled vegetables, relishes or chow-chow, cheese cakes, canned vegetables or meats, fermented vegetables and dairy or meat products.
