I’m Kate, a plant-based (and fungi-based) chef in Brooklyn. I use this newsletter to write about food and health — where health encompasses nutrition, mental balance in a destabilizing world, and the resilience of our communities.

Sunday letters are usually personal essays or interviews with people who cook about ingredients they use, and Fridays are subscriber-only recipes — often vegan, always vegetarian.
