A kitchen witch, simply stated, is someone who does their magic in the kitchen, with food. However, its not exactly what simple, it never is.
A kitchen witch weaves magic into every small thing they do around the house. Cooking and cleaning is no longer a chore because they know that its not just a mundane task. They know that its not just food, its a way to make a difference in lives. Its not just cleaning, its making the energy in their environment sparkle. The kitchen witch understands on an instinctual level that everything is connected and there is no one right way to do anything.
In their home you will find all kinds of interesting things that at first glance just look like ornaments and knick knacks. But if you know who they are, and you ask nicely they might tell you its magical purpose. Nothing is ever as it seems at first glance in a witch’s house.
A kitchen witch is wise in the hundred and one tiny things that take no time at all but make a huge difference to how smoothly life flows. For them, and for everyone around them.
Who Can Be a Kitchen Witch?
There was a time when being a kitchen witch was a matter of heredity. The wisdom and knowledge was passed down from mother to daughter through the family line. Sometimes, if a woman had no children she would mentor a girl who lived nearby, passing her knowledge on to a new family for preservation.
Nowadays things are very different. Many, if not most, kitchen witches are self-taught. The internet and the positive slew of books on the subject make finding a virtual teacher easier than it ever has been before. Kitchen witches are of all ages, from the very young to the very old. Many of us come to it a little later in life, but that doesn’t stop us from being able to learn and more importantly, intuit just as much.
Many witches are some flavor of pagan, because the pagan religions are the ones that tend to embrace magic more readily. Many kitchen witches don’t practice any religion at all; instead they simply walk in tune with nature and her seasons and moods.
Kitchen witchery can be embraced by anyone, male or female, that wants to turn their home into a sanctuary.
