My kitchen is a laboratory, a library, and classroom. From 2011-2017, my food blog Cupboard Sundries was the online extension of my kitchen. It was a tool for experimenting with food and writing. This much I have learned is true—the most unassuming ingredient in our cupboards has a rich story that is intricately interwoven in culture and memory. Cupboard Sundries was one place where I explored these stories.
