If there is one thing I have clearly established here on The Magical Buffet, it’s that I love food. Full stop. End of story. Obviously, this meant that given the opportunity to try out the “Witches’ Kitchen Oracle Cards” I was all in! And honestly, this exceeded expectations.
Barbara Meiklejohn-Free and Flavia Kate Peters, together with Richard Crookes as illustrator, created an all-purpose deck for anyone who loves food. It’s beautiful in its simplicity. Each card focuses on an ingredient and has an associated theme. For example: Apple with Forbidden, Blackberry with Invasive, or Olive with Peace. Each card is densely illustrated, evoking a mood and reminding you of all the various ways that food item can be used. With that you have everything you need!
Like most oracle decks, and particularly with this one, I favor the single card draw. You may think with a food theme “Witches’ Kitchen” would be awkward used that way. You would be wrong. Not only can the evocative images and theme inspire some insight, you realize that you have a strong personal association with food, and that adds a personal depth to the deck that you won’t find with others.
The accompanying book features different spreads you can use the cards with, more detail about each card, and recipes! Yay food!
Seriously, this deck may seem “light weight” at a glance, but there is a lot of wisdom to be found in the “Witches’ Kitchen Oracle Cards”.

Any deck that makes sure to include a martini on the Olive card is A plus in my book!
