    1. If you, like me, are considering reading this book for cooking recipes, I'll save you some time. On the last few pages there's instructions for a fruit salad and for an inedible decorative bread wreath. Now for the good, the bad, and the ugly. Because really I'm not out here to trash an author, but it's rare that I run across a witchcraft book quite this poorly put together.The good: There are some valid magical practices in here. The unbinding spell, for example, is legitimate. There's an inter [...]


    2. Badly written, reductive, appropriative and poorly researched with no references. When a text has the obligatory copyright claim (this is the authors own work and cannot be reproduced in any way) and yet copies slabs of content from thousands of sources with no reference this is just shoddy practise. To use a Pratchett reference, just as one cannot claim to own the cauldron of story, one should not claim ownership of The Cauldron. There are better books for beginning witches to use. Let me offer [...]


    3. Bought this book on the strength of Pagan Portals - Kitchen Witchcraft: Crafts of a Kitchen Witch,I have to say it's a great book, very informative but leaves room for you to do your own research if you want to look deeper into a section,the exercises are good and again is written in a very friendly,fun, accessible way.Very good for beginners and intermediates alike, one that I will keep going back to over and over again, has to be my new favourite book :) Looking forward to the next one


    4. I was pretty disappointed. I was not aware that it is entirely written from a Wicca perspective which means a big chunk of it does not apply to me. It is also completely full with grammatical errors. I don't recommend this book at all. There is no information in it you cannot find with a minimal amount of googling.


    5. Wonderful awakening!This book is spot on. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of nature and human existence. A must for any witch.


    6. Rachel Patterson and the Witch’s KitchenTraditional witches didn’t have temples and the nearest they ever got to an established meeting place was a remote grove in a wood or a cunningly concealed cave – most of the time their witchcraft was practiced in the privacy of their own kitchens. If this seems rather mundane, then we need to remind ourselves that the hearth fire is one of the most sacred elements of old witchcraft; and this is what Rachel ‘Tansy’ Pattersen harnesses in her seri [...]


    7. I hate to place a negative review of a book but when I have to rate a book with so few stars I feel I should explain. Had I been able to rate zero stars I would have because this book is not only nonsense but potentially damaging. There are many books available that might be thought fluffy but this book pales the majority. I was bought this book by a well-meaning friend as a Samhain gift (a bit of a tradition) and when I read it I wondered if it had been bought as a joke. The most interesting th [...]


    8. I was really disappointed with this book. I expected it to be more of an intermediate book on paganism/wicca and it isn't. The information inside is like so many other books out there. That being said, while it wasn't for me, I'm sure it will help someone who is just starting out to find their way. To me it was like picking up a book and seeing that all the pages are just like the last book you just read.


    9. Edit: After a re-read of this book I'm changing my review to a 1 star. Not a fan at all many other commenters have summed up why this book isn't that great.It was pretty okay. Ignored roughly 30% of the chapters and didn't really like that the author did the whole witch=wiccan thing. I'm a pagan witch and I follow none of the rules or traditions of Wicca. But it was an okay book.


    10. A good introduction to kitchen witchcraft, which a lot of people still look down on. It is written from a Wiccan perspective, so most of the rituals where far more elaborate than my Solitary ones. I love her writing style, it's very down to earth, and bonus points for name-checking the witches of the Discworld.


    11. Janet Mawdsley's review of Grimoire of a Kitchen Witch is published on her blog, you can read it in full there. bluewolf-reviews/index


    12. This was a fun book by a modern practitioner telling us how she does things. She's accessible, doesn't take herself too seriously, and enjoys what what she does. There's plenty of good practical advice. Not a lot about background, history, or the why of different things.



    13. I can't with this book. The appropriation and misinformation on indigenous and other closed/initiatory traditions is too much to bear. Be advised this is a book about Wicca and there are a lot of other books that are more informative and do not steal from other traditions.
