I am actually good friends with Rachel and work alongside her at Kitchen Witch school. But while you may think that would make me biased, I think that would make me her biggest critic.

Reading the book is honestly how she would talk to you over a cup of peppermint tea and a slice of cake. The book is down to earth, uncomplicated and in all honesty a breath of fresh compared to other witchcraft books.

I really wish there was something like this when I first began my journey into witchcraft. A lot o

I am simply in love with this book. Rachel Patterson, a kitchen witch divine, has excellently written this as an absolute essential in any modern Pagan's life. Instead of complicated spells, expensive tools and hard-to-find herbs, you will find that almost everything is already in your kitchen -- and if it's not, it's just one trip away to your local natural food store.

This is a wonderful introduction to the everyday life of a witch, and as another reviewer said, for anyone who would prefer to

Recommends it for: Witches, Pagans, Druid - anyone interesting in magick!
I found this book very well written and very down to earth - both great things for a witchcraft book! Rachel does a fantastic job of showing you the world of a modern witch :)

I think it is a fantastic introduction to what a witch does and what they can do!

There are so many books out there filled with lists of herbs that are hard to get and expensive tools and this book is wonderful as it tells you what you need to know when you first start to practice - everything you need can be found in your

Rachel Patterson and the Witch’s Kitchen
Traditional witches didn’t have temples and the nearest they ever got to an established meeting place was a remote grove in a wood or a cunningly concealed cave – most of the time their witchcraft was practiced in the privacy of their own kitchens. If this seems rather mundane, then we need to remind ourselves that the hearth fire is one of the most sacred elements of old witchcraft; and this is what Rachel ‘Tansy’ Pattersen harnesses in her series of ‘kit

I have read this book and found it to be a wonderful little book full of advice, recipes and straight forward, easy to read information. I think this will be a great help to any Pagan or in fact anyone who wants to use natural things rather than a whole bunch of chemicals.
Its on my pad and I am bound to look in this often!
The phrase 'Kitchen Witchcraft' conjures up brewing potions and hanging herbs, and while this of course can be the case, the experienced witch knows the kitchen can be the beating heart of their home, where the material and the mystical meld to create magic.

Rachel approaches this topic with just such a theory in mind, and makes no assumptions about the level of skill or experience of the reader. It's important to bear in mind that as part of the Pagan Portals series, this book is intended as a b

This book is part of the Moon Book collection called "Pagan Portals"

On the surface you might think that this book has nothing to offer the experienced craft practitioner but I can guarantee that there will be a nugget of gold to be found by all who read it

As I have come to expect of a book published by Moon Books, this book is well presented and well written, the author has a personable style and writes with familiarity over formality, a quality I enjoy in this kind of book. The reader feels as
I bought this book on a whim after trying to find a more friendlier simpler book, I was not disappointed.Extremely well written,the style it is written in is friendly and more like you are sat in her kitchen with a cup of tea having a chat.
Very inspiring,fresh and very informative,great for if you are new to the path.
I have since bought her new book Grimoire of a kitchen witch .I will definitely be buying more of her stuff,I urge you to give it a go for so little money.
