Murfreesboro’s Curious Kitchen has new spot for cafe, cooking school

More than six years after opening The Curious Kitchen in Murfreesboro, Helena Spensatelli and daughter, Rachel Spensatelli, have moved operations.

Now located at 327 E. State St. in downtown Murfreesboro, The Curious Kitchen is now at least four times the size of the previous space. Once a warehouse, the building they purchased on East State provided a blank slate for them to dream big.

“Everything is big enough to where we can grow,” Rachel said. “Mom and I will make magic happen.”

Helena and Rachel expected to have The Curious Kitchen open in the spring. But between COVID-19 and renovating an old building, the cafe opening won’t happening until early 2021.

Although you won’t be able to enjoy The Curious Kitchen Cafe, reservations for cooking classes are underway for group, individual and kids camps in December and into January. Most have openings and some classes have waiting lists.

“We get some of our best joy out of teaching the kids. Some of them come in we had one kid who didn’t know what a potato was,” Helena said.

Rachel Spensatelli and her mom Helena Spensatelli stand in a dinning area of The Curious Kitchen, on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020, in Murfreesboro, the two will soon be opening their venue for cooking classes and a new cafe.

To incorporate fresh produce to use in cooking classes — and be able to introduce children, especially, to how things are grown — the pair built a raised garden patch at the side of the building.

There are a variety of cooking classes to suit everyone’s taste palate, from A Night in Tuscany featuring gourmet Italian dishes, Exploring Indian Food, and baking classes for a wide range of ages.
