Pineapple Kitchen offers a little bit of everything culinary to Lakewood Ranchers. At their Culinary Theater, they have Kitchen Kids Culinary Education programs which teach children ages 7-13 about principles of food safety in the kitchen, best practices for food preparation, and basic kitchen tools and measurements. They also provide hands-on experience on how to prepare a recipe. Their summer camps and fall Kitchen Kids Challenge classes are very popular and fill up quickly. For adults they offer unique Dining & Mixology Events, Charcuterie Classes, and Interactive Murder Mystery Shows. Husband-and-wife owners, Mike and Jenny Schenk welcome everyone to visit them at Pineapple Kitchen in Lakewood Ranch.

“Come and experience our new line of flavorful burger jams to take your burgers to the next level,” says Jenney. “Try our yummy Fusion Jalapeño Strawberry Jam for charcuterie cheeses or brunch. Hospitality never tasted so good!” Pineapple Kitchen’s Gourmet Market is open select hours this summer. Stop in for all of your gourmet condiments, soft pretzel needs and more. The Schenks love helping customers put together gift baskets and choose delicious unique items to entertain with or pick up as a hostess gift. New for the fall, Pineapple Kitchen will offer Family Mystery Shows twice a month for all ages.
