In the Kitchen

I love to cook (and to eat) and sharing good food with people. Thinking and writing about the place of food in our lives as well as preparing it thoughtfully gives me great pleasure. I’m not a fine or fussy cook, so my recipes are simple and flexible, usually pretty rustic. All Nourishing Words recipes are gluten-free, vegetarian and made with whole, local, seasonal ingredients.
