Magick in the Kitchen

The Kitchen is the Hearth and the Heart of the home and this is where the magick happens! Welcome to my kitchen. The kitchen is my happy place where am always whipping up something magical, nourishing and fun.

Kitchen Witchery is a magical art akin to alchemy but also closely tied to folk magick. The Kitchen Witch uses materials at hand to craft magical spells that also double as delicious meals, home decor, bath products, clothing, jewelry and other everyday items. Kitchen Witches cook and craft with intention while being mindful of the natural properties of the materials they use. While many Kitchen Witches work on instinct, we also spend a great deal of time studying recipes and the magical, healing and nutritional properties of the foods we use.

Using Herbs for Magick

Herblore or Wortcunning is often closely associated with Witchcraft in the public imagination and indeed many witches are also experts in using plants for magical and healing purposes- but not all. So I just want to say before we begin, that if you’re not into plants, you can still practice magick without them and you […]

Hassenpfeffer

Because I raise rabbits for meat, I am always looking for good rabbit recipes and hassenpfeffer is a classic, and so one of the first I sought out. It is an old recipe, bearing the hallmarks of upscale 16th and 17th-century cooking. It is loaded with spice trade goodness. One nice thing about hassenpfeffer is […]

Getting Started with a Simple Herb Garden

Gardening can be intimidating and, for those of us who do not have our own patch of dirt to tend, it can seem nearly impossible. But growing and using your own herbs is quite satisfying and can only improve our magical relationship with them. And if you don’t have your own patch of dirt, many […]

Little Kitchen Rituals

Ritual is the difference between the ordinary and the special. Rituals surrounding objects, times and places signify their importance, their sacredness. While there are certainly other things involved with Kitchen Witchery, rituals surrounding the kitchen and the preparation of food is a defining feature. It reflects the sanctity of the space as well as the […]

First Harvest Reflections

The feast of the First Harvest is a feast of little bits. The garden is full of promise, but not full of ripe produce. We have some zucchini, an eggplant, maybe even a tomato, but hardly enough of anything to make a meal, but together, with a handful of herbs, couple eggs from the hens […]
