The romance of creating wonderful food and drink on a huge scale (Passata days! A cellar! An orchard!) is intoxicating, but that’s not where life is for most of us. At best there’s a corner of the pantry and an odd bit of time on weekends and evenings.
The projects you’ll find on this site can all be made in a small space, and in pockets of time stolen from work, kids, and all the other business of acting like a grown up when you’d really rather be berry picking. There’s a project for every time of year, and nothing will break the bank or take over your home. You can make a tiny jar of unique bitters or a liqueur from things you forage on your walk home – and even your very own wine.
I made this website as a space to write down what I’m learning, and share my recipes, ideas and research on everything boozy you can make at home. As such I would love to hear from you if you have comments or requests.
