The Three Kitcheneers

{xtypo_dropcap}T{/xtypo_dropcap}he Three Kitcheneers formed in such a natural way that the ladies can hardly remember how the team came to be. Now, however, the solid trio is popping up everywhere, from excellent restaurants to premier events to possibly even your very own kitchen. Think of it like this: The Three Kitcheneers are all things food, all of the time.

Assunta Swier, Charlotte Abrams, and Megan Greenberg make up the Three Kitcheneers. Assunta, being a first-generation American by way of Brooklyn, grew up in a traditional Italian kitchen where all duties revolved around the next meal, including hunting game and making wine. Megan credits her mother for nurturing her culinary interests by prompting her to try everything, without forcing her to try anything, which led Megan to a lifelong love affair with food. Charlotte’s palate was heavily influenced by world travel and Thomas Keller’s French Laundry Cookbook, each recipe looking better than the next.

The Three Kitcheneers came together without a fully formed idea of what they would become. Charlotte suggested an idea that could merge her vision and Megan’s then current projects. Megan and Assunta had previously discussed a similar venture. Thus, they decided to meet at Sarasota hot spot Pacific Rim to learn how to roll sushi and see what could happen with a little video magic, thanks to Tessa Lee of HuB Studios. The endeavor was a success, leading them to need a name. Megan randomly coined the term ‘The Three Kitcheneers,’ and to everybody’s surprise, it stuck. The Three Kitcheneers were born.

At the time of the interview, their current projects ranged from making chile with the Sarasota firemen of Engine 4, as well as home cooking episodes with YPG chairman Frank Maggio; Go-To Girl Molly Klauber, and Andrea’s restaurant owner, Andrea. The ladies truly enjoy their time together and their ability to create content organically. In addition to their webisodes, they have a strong presence via their website and social media and enjoy communicating religiously with their growing number of fans through Facebook and email. Fans can find them at threekitcheneers.com, and are encouraged to get involved, communicate, and pitch them ideas, big and small.

The ladies love the path that the Three Kitcheneers is taking and would be content should it never grow past this point. Megan pointed out that right now they are eating their respective “cake” and anything greater than that is the frosting. She also added she really loves frosting.

The Three Kitcheneers have several items in the works for the future, including an iPhone app and a Studio Kitchen in the new HuB, open next year. Assunta also hinted that a cookbook could be hitting the shelves next year, as well! Read more articles and watch Webisodes at threekitcheneers.com
