Kitchen Witchcraft 101

The hexed apple. Enchanted mushrooms. Ceremonial cakes.

Witchcraft has been used in food & cooking, both in history & lore, for centuries. With the understanding that we are what we eat, and that preparations ingested become alchemically fused with the body of the practitioner, witches use bespelled food to influence people and outcomes, making it a powerful tool in the practitioner's toolbox.

From commonplace ritual entheogens, to the practice of eating sustainably and bioregionally, to magical food correspondances, to downright devlish uses for frosting, join us as we explore the multitude of ways to bring the craft into the kitchen.
