Kitchen witchcraft

Kitchen witchcraft, or kitchen witchery, is a form of witchcraft practiced concurrently with tasks centered on the kitchen, such as cooking and baking, and making use of readily-available items for rituals and spells rather than purpose-bought or purpose-made elements. Like other forms of witchcraft, kitchen witchcraft centers on the practice of magic which may or may not be combined with other forms of spirituality.[1]

Similar in context to other forms of folk magic, kitchen witchcraft is generally associated with white magic and benevolent assistance rather than malevolence. Kitchen magic may be combined with cooking and food preparation as a method for delivering healing or other benevolent spells or incantations.
