Welcome to The Botanical Kitchen

A TINY ATLAS. A PLACE DEVOTED TO BOTANICAL COOKERY AND A CONSIDERED EXISTENCE. IT'S APPRECIATION OF SLOWNESS; OF GESTURES; OF NATURAL BEAUTY & OF GATHERING.

The Botanical Kitchen is a  journal that exists to give creative root to an idea; one that dismisses modern drudgery in favour of the sonder that can be found in simplicity & solidarity. It is an archive of botanically minded thoughts and recipes; an illustration of gathered rituals and routines. It is a place for sustenance and of reference; one that meanders between ordinary life and the beautiful fringe at its borders.

Notes on Cookery

NATURAL / 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 seasonality and provenance like nothing else.

 

Notes in Conversation

creative folk / STORIES / CONTRIBUTIONS

Time and time again I've come to witness the magic in simple communion; be it wisdom garnered in conversation, a moment spent in wonder or the realisation of shared struggle - it’s powerful to appreciate the commonalities we share. This collection is my celebration of the social table; of its people, their habits and the nuances that make them remarkable.

 

Field Notes

ADVICE / INSIGHTS / MUSINGS

Natural insight and intuition are so often lost to the in between moments of daily life; they’re like secret whispers passed around while the table is lay or the meal prepared. This collection is my attempt at their record; a collection torn from book margins and time stained pages; from conversations in passing and scrupulous inquiry.
