I sat down with the HD for each of the surrounding counties and they all said the same thing. Cook on site, follow our guidelines, we don't care. Prep work - don't ask don't tell was their stance unless I'm filing for a temporary permit. My county even gave me a list of places I can rent from, but I have friends with restaurants and a couple of churches within walking distance that will do rent in trade.

Aside from this I would point out - don't forget insurance.....

I don't know how the laws are in LA but if you need a commercial kitchen, try working a swap with a social club (vfw, bpoe, etc) or perhaps even a church, that already has a commercial kitchen.

Now I don't recommend this, but...

The heatlth department here in Boulder County told me they can't possibly check out all the caterers who work illegally out of their house. That said, you better get good insurance one way or the other to protect yourself.
