    It looks like Cook County doesn’t allow me to sell perishable items made in my home kitchen. Does anyone know if I rent a commercial kitchen to bake in, can I sell perishable items (i.e. quiche, low acidic pies)?

    Yes, you can start any kind of food business if you use a commercial kitchen, but you’ll also need to get the necessary licenses to run your business, which can be complicated.
