Welcome to The Botanical Kitchen

A TINY ATLAS. A PLACE FOR PONDERING SIMPLICITIES AND A MEANINGFUL EXISTENCE. IT'S APPRECIATION OF SLOWNESS; OF GESTURES; OF NATURAL COOKERY & OF GATHERING.

This journal exists to give creative root to an idea. An idea to share in the scripting of a common story; one that dismisses modern drudgery in favour of the sonder that can be found in simplicity & solidarity. It is intended to act as an archive; an illustration of how people gather in ritual, routine & thought. A place of sustenance; that is both personal and public. It is a gesture comprised of three series; each with their own nuances. There might be relevance found in only one or indeed with them all but nonetheless they're a means to meander.

The Art of Gathering

PEOPLE / placemaking / travel

The Art of Gathering is a homage to the ways in which we gather; an illustration of how lives are marked by both ceremony and daily habit. It's intended to be storytelling in nature; a collection of short visual and written pieces; conversations, field notes, habits and adventures with thoughtful contributions from creative people.

 

The Botanical Collection

NATURAL COOKING / SIMPLE / SEASONAL

Food has sustained legions; generations of people, each with practises born of time, culture, circumstance or ingenuity. Good food isn’t convenient but it needn’t be extravagant either. Simple cookery so often yields a savoured meal and with many that hunger for real sustenance a botanically minded plate is entwined with the ebb and flow of nature like nothing else.

 

The Art of Getting By

INSIGHT / ADVICE / RESOURCE

We live ordinarily for the most part but our existence is entwined with untold beauty, turmoil and emotion. The Art of Getting By is a collection of observations and insights; a gesture examining the nature of ourselves and our surroundings. It meanders not with expert credential but with simplicity and solidarity in common experience and inquisitive thought.
