I’m pausing my IG account.
.
Creating a podcast, writing email notes from my kitchen, helping support the growing Ancestral Kitchen patreon community and trying to write a book on oats. These things (as well as mummying and creating in the kitchen) are enough!
.
Exciting things come from creating space.
.
I’d love to stay in touch with you. I am devoted to sending missives from my kitchen via email and creating the podcast, Ancestral Kitchen, with @farmandhearth bi-weekly. You can get both via the link in my profile.

With much love from my kitchen to yours. xx
