celebrating simplicity and resourcefulness

Hi, I'm Kristin! Welcome to the Kitchen Sanctuary.

My richly layered food journey has led me back home to the kitchen, to my refuge. It is here that I wish to inspire good health by encouraging others to consider their choices - from the way they shop and store their food to how they prepare and enjoy it, making sure to waste nothing in the process.

I teach home cooks to think confidently through the lens of simplicity and resourcefulness, and to adopt the practical skills of our past. My writing covers these and other topics around wellness and the environment.

I believe that the kitchen should be a place where we feel joy and ease, using our senses to guide us. My hope is that by making more space in your kitchen, you will create more space in your life and deepen your connection to nature. It's that easy, and yet so complex in today's world where our instincts have become overwhelmed.

Thanks for joining me!
