A Lifetime of Experience in Every Bite
What's Kim Mitchell All About?
Cooking and sharing over food has always been a passion of mine. I started being interested in cooking when I was a young girl. I would read the recipes in the coupon and food sections of the newspaper, and beg my mom to let me try them. Eventually she started letting me try them, and it wasn't long before I was cooking dinner for our family a couple nights a week.
As I got older, I could always be counted on to be in the kitchen at any event, helping out, or being the one making the food for the group. I kept taking on more and more until I was eventually even leading meals as a volunteer for large camping trips- including making falafel and toppings for over 300 people!
After my daughter was born in 2015, I realized that I needed to be a better role model for her. I wanted to show her that we don't have to save passions for our "off hours", and that it is possible to both work and love what you do. So I left a 20 year career in retail to start this business.
I love being able to help people- and through my services I'm able to help in a variety of ways. I can make restrictive diets taste good, I can share the tips and tricks and food that I've learned to cook with decades of various diets. I can let you get home from a long day (hopefully also doing what you love) and ease into a balanced meal that will nourish your body and soul.
I'm constantly learning, trying and experimenting. I believe that food is the common language of all people, and through sharing it, we can have a better understanding of each other and our world. I'm happy to share my experiences and favorites with you, and I am equally happy to learn about your likes and find new to me recipes and cuisines that bring you joy. I especially love it when I'm trusted to recreate family favorites for my clients.
The food I offer is thoughtfully prepared so that my values are held true in every bite. Someone once described my cooking style as "veggie forward." I believe in eating food that is good for our world as well as our soul; I choose produce that is organic and local whenever possible. Meats and sea foods are chosen only if they are from responsible sources. I try to minimize waste, using leftover bits to make stocks or other dishes.
