Support Kitchen Shaman Cooks

After months of planning, we’re pleased to announce that we are launching a crowdfunding campaign today, October 1st.  We want to turn the things you love about this blog into a web series and we need your help. 

We have created a number of videos showing you recipes, cooking tips, and me eating things and you can see them on the Kitchen Shaman YouTube Channel.  We want to take this to the next level, renting equipment and hiring a professional crew to bring you a higher quality program. We’re asking you to help make that happen.

Talk To Chef: Culinary 911

There’s a new service available now called TalktoChef. It is a face-to-face video service, connecting you directly to an expert who can help you with a cooking emergency or culinary 911. I am a Featured Chef on this app.

Imagine you are in the middle of cooking a dinner for friends and you realize that you forgot to buy an ingredient. You need to know if there’s a reliable substitution. You can use TalktoChef to immediately connect with a professional to help you locate an appropriate substitute in your pantry. What if you miss a step in a recipe and need to back up? How do you do that? Connect and have your questions answered by me. You gain confidence in cooking with someone beside you (virtually) and a guiding hand to help.

Over the last two years I have been healing from shoulder injuries.

Follow the Photographs, and More

Are you following the Kitchen Shaman on Facebook yet? I usually post photos of my food over there first and I always put a direct link to all blog posts so you’ll know when there’s something new to read. I also provide links to other food blogs, videos, news and information, as well as notices about local events. And that’s where I announce upcoming cooking classes and demos.
