Hey there! Welcome to The Cultivated Cupboard. I started this blog in the hopes of sharing my love for cooking and the satisfaction of a warm meal shared with loved ones.
Since I was a kid, my family sat down together for dinner every night. Each meal was savored and enjoyed in good company. Every dinner was an event worthy of remaining at the table long after the food was gone.
I am lucky enough to have amazing parents who worked all day, raised three children, and still found the time and energy to make delicious meals each and every day.
Being raised on lingering meals, good wine, and pleasant company has made me a lover of food and meals. I no longer get to enjoy my parents cooking every night, but as I moved out into the world on my own, I found in myself a love not only for those meals, but for cooking.
I now live and eat here in Columbus, Ohio – a city with an underrated and hidden food scene. Unique restaurants, craft breweries and distilleries, and local grocers and butchers make Columbus a hidden gem for foodies.
I am by no means a professional chef, but I hope my simple take on food will inspire others to enjoy a good meal in good company.
