decades of exploration and research with many wise and wonderful authors, food and plant people have gone into creating this content


  • My shelves are lined with many amazing books that I have read, learned from and referenced over the years and used throughout Botanical Kitchen’s website while creating and compiling the content and educational information. 

    I created this page to credit those authors and show my gratitude for their hard work, research, experience and willingness to share their stories and knowledge.
