Welcome to Cooks & Poets.
The kitchen was my refuge at a very early age. I fell in love with baking when I was nine and found myself working in a private kitchen in Los Angeles, serving Hollywood’s elite my blueberry pies by the time I was nineteen. But the film industry’s allure was too strong, and I ultimately chose that path which set forth a career and trajectory that some would say was just too good to be true.
However, in last couple years, I have emerged back into my kitchen because ultimately baking and cooking are a labor of love. When I was baking early on, I had no idea about what I know now in regards to fresh ingredients and the power of plants. So I get to take that new knowledge back into the kitchen and start experimenting from a new place.
I keep the kitchen minimal but surrounded by tools and pieces that I have collected along the way — using cutlery designed by world-renowned architects, porcelain on permanent display at MoMA, and handcrafted one of kind bowls and tools, not because they look pretty but because these tools are functional and made to last for generations to come. In that way, they have environmental sympathy. I wanted to find a way to share my passion for food and the functionality and beauty of good design together in one place — and that is how the Cooks & Poets shop came about.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to send an email or DM, we respond to all of them.
