About The Kitchenista Diaries

Hello!
My name is Angela Davis but you probably know me online as "The Kitchenista." Nine years ago, I launched The Kitchenista Diaries, where I blogged about my journey to become a better home cook. Developing recipes and growing my platform on social media ended up being the catalyst to leave my former construction accounting job for a freelance private chef career. I've since self-published four digital cookbooks and my work has appeared in The Washington Post, Wine Enthusiast, Shondaland, and Food & Wine. As far as my presence on social media, you can find me actively creating content on Instagram. On Twitter, I'm most proud of #kitchenistasundays, which started as a Sunday dinner roll call for home cooks to share their food pictures. I've successfully branched out to do local events and pop-ups, most recently at Mabel Gray restaurant. Next up, I'm creating my first YouTube series based on the concept!

I've always been vulnerable about my story, whether that means sharing glimpses of my life as a single mom or coping with bipolar disorder. The process of growing a business from the ground up is certainly not without challenges. I share those ups and downs right along with the recipes. The life lessons learned in the kitchen were instrumental to my personal development. My mission for The Kitchenista Diaries is to create digital storytelling that inspires authenticity and confidence in your personal cooking journey. I enjoy sharing content that motivates you to get in the kitchen! I use food photography, videography, music, recipes, and personal essays to inform, encourage, and connect a new generation of savvy home cooks like myself. 

I'm so excited for the journey to officially continue on Patreon after blogging for nine years at kitchenistadiaries.com. By supporting as a Patron, here's what you can expect:

  • Exclusive access to #kitchenistasundays, #kitchenistadiaries, and #duckfatganggang content, featuring the extended recipe notes I can't squeeze into social media captions + free pdf downloads so you can save them to your phone.
  • Merchandise preorders and discounts.
  • Invitations to virtual gatherings. 
  • Behind the scenes updates as I self-publish The Kitchenista Diaries: Volume 2 (#kdv2) and pursue a cookbook publishing deal.
  • Get updates on my next business adventure - I'm launching Kitchenista merchandise and have a goal to launch my first retail food product in 2022.

Please review the tiers carefully to be sure you're subscribing to the type of content you want to see weekly. No matter what tier you choose, you're helping to make it possible for me to share my gifts with the world, provide for my family, and grow my business. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and for making the decision to support the work of an independent creator. You are appreciated and I can't wait to cook with you! 

Love, peace & duck fat,
Angela
