My name is Mary Kat. I was raised in California but I live in Guelph, Ontario, Canada and go to university for environmental governance and geography. Afterwards I would like to pursue a diploma in sustainable waste management.
The point of this blog is to cook with ingredients that don’t have packaging. I aim for a zero waste kitchen but do not achieve it fully due to budget and time constraints. When I started this blog I lived at home and my dad paid for groceries, so it was easy to be a perfect zero waster.
If you’re in the industry, I’m not a chef. I worked in some kitchens a few years after I started this blog, but when I originally created it in high school I was a hobby cook. Now I have about 3 years of professional experience in kitchens, mostly baking.
I started this blog in 2011 when I was 16.
