Welcome to KitchenSanctuary -- where local fresh produce meets media-making!

Cooking--of whatever kind, everyday or extreme--situates us in the world in a very special place, facing the natural world on one side and the social world on the other. The cook stands squarely between nature and culture, conducting a process of translation and negotiation. Both nature and culture are transformed by the work. And in the process, I discoverd, so is the cook. 

 --Michael Pollan, Cooked
