In New York State, you will most likely have to create a separate commercial kitchen in your residence with all that entails: equipment, sinks, wall and floor coverings, ventilation, municipal water vs water quality testing, etc. First check with the NYS Department of Health and your local zoning and code enforcement offices for their requirements to see if it is doable.
