Kitchen Witchery

I like food. Duh, right? Unless you’re new here, in which case, hello, I like food. Thusly, I am always on the lookout for books that can offer me new and exciting reasons to enjoy the foods I like. Enter “Kitchen Witchery: Unlocking the Magick in Everyday Ingredients” by Laurel Woodward.


Personally, I’m loving this renaissance of food and cocktail books infused with witchery, and “Kitchen Witchery” is a wonderful addition to this growing niche. Woodward includes plenty of recipes. However, what I truly loved was the extensive list of ingredients and their potential for adding magic to your cooking. I liked looking at the ingredients that go into some of my favorite dishes and reimaging the dish as this new, magical thing. And thanks to Woodward’s thorough writing including oils, nuts, vegetables, fruits, beans, gluten-free flours, spices, and more, you’re sure to find magic in everything!

For example, tonight for dinner I made chicken with black beans, corn and bell peppers. The side has corn, which is associated with abundance, fertility, life, luck, protection, resurrection, and spirituality, black beans for healing, love, prosperity, and wisdom, and green, red, and yellow peppers which are associated with growth and prosperity, vitality and strength, and creativity respectively. Suddenly that pile of veggies is a lot more impressive, right?

“Kitchen Witchery” by Laurel Woodward is for anyone looking for a little more in their meals.
