Welcome to Kitchen Witch!

Cooking, baking, and ingredients are some of the key tools of the trade here at Kitchen Witch, and this newsletter celebrates all the magic that can be made in the kitchen. We cover anything that hits the intersection of food and witchcraft—whether that’s a recipe for a honey jar, the history of altar cakes, or even a deep-dive into food-adjacent topics, like ancient Icelandic farting spells and how they relate to food. Our goal is to provide you snackable bites of information once a month on fun, unique, and otherworldly topics, through professionally edited articles.

Subscribe and stay up-to-date on everything happening in the kitchen.
