Kitchen Therapy


The kitchen is full of wonder. The sight of a bountiful pantry. The feeling of dough in your hands. The scent of freshly baked bread. The captivating sound of onions sizzling in the pan. And the taste. Oh, the taste.

We return to it again and again, for the kitchen holds powerful therapy. It holds the power to heal hearts, bodies, and minds.


Think of the dishes that speak to your heart, heal your body, and soothe your mind. Kitchen Therapy can be a powerful thing. Make a Ruth Reichl dish that speaks to you and post it by Sunday, December 9th. Please link a picture, and please leave a comment below, so that we don't miss out on your dish.

"And so I take my time, admiring the color that's hidden until you peel a peach. I open the oven door, leaning in to savor the fine yeasty scent of bread as it begins its slow rise. Making pie crust, I cut the shortening in by hand, eager to feel it becoming one with the flour. And I never fail to listen for the sizzle of sliced onions as they hit hot butter in a pan."

"My kitchen year started in a time of trouble, but it taught me a great deal. When I went back to cooking, I rediscovered simple pleasures, and as I began to appreciate the world around me, I learned that the secret to life is finding the joy in ordinary things."
