Time Inc. test kitchen investment adds to Birmingham culinary scene

With new restaurants opening every month and a massive Time Inc. test kitchen on the way, Birmingham’s dynamic food scene is gaining national exposure and positioning the Alabama city as a premier culinary destination.

In the latest development, New York-based Time Inc. plans to make a multimillion-dollar investment to set up what’s being called its Food Studios, envisioned as a production center for food-related content for its stable of national magazines and websites.

Earlier this year, Zagat named Birmingham the no. 1 city in its list of “America’s Next Hot Food Cities,” but Birmingham’s culinary renaissance did not pop up overnight. It’s been years in the making thanks to passionate chefs and an enthusiastic consumer base.

“Business is coming here and believing in this community,” said Chef Brandon Cain, co-owner of Saw’s Soul Kitchen and Post Office Pies, a neighboring pizza restaurant that was featured in Zagat’s announcement.
