Plenty of recipes exist on the Web. What’s our niche? Simple, straightforward recipes using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Our recipes come from a variety of sources: contributors, cookbooks, and the Culinate Kitchen — the food we cook at home.

At Culinate we believe that eating well and living well are interconnected, and that the intentional act of preparing food with, and for, other people leads to both. Join us in the kitchen — and let us know how these recipes work for you. Look for a recipe by ingredient, season, type of dish, or theme by searching our tag database.

Don’t forget to check out our featured recipe collections (at right), focusing on recipes from our contributors and Slow Food chefs as well as cooking weeknight meals, with whole grains, from farmers’ markets, for holidays, and Jewish cooking.
