From tikka masala to Mexican BBQ, home kitchens set to expand across the state

California is one of the first states to legalize the sale of meals from the home, opening up new avenues for amateur chefs - namely immigrants, women, and people of color - who are not formally in the restaurant industry or do not have access to professional kitchens. While implementation of the new law is at the beginning stages, there are signs that it is already providing a lower-risk way for people who might open a restaurant in the future, although opponents have raised some concerns regarding zoning.
