Leading a little culinary revolution
We teach you cooking strategies for improvising excellent, original meals, without rote execution of recipes, and adapted to the circumstances, whims, and mishaps of life.
We teach you, in other words, what you’ve always wanted to know.
What We Value
We scale down the systems of professional production to the home, distilling important general strategies of organization and suggestions for stocking a top-quality, versatile pantry.
An excellently-prepared, flexible pantry gives any level of cook the ability to improvise. All Purple Kale instruction starts here.
Our ingredient-driven approach requires we use the best products possible. Mostly, these are seasonal and local.
We focus on using perishable items first, and on using all parts of any single ingredient, even sometimes those typically discarded.
Culinary instruction fails when attempts to save time, money, and effort make for anything less than fantastic food.
