Welcome to Fare Isle! I’m Kaity, a private chef and artisan living simply with my family on the island of Nantucket, 26 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Together with my husband, Jacob, I cook one-of-a-kind private chef dinners for folks who visit this enchanting island hamlet. I love working with my hands and food has always been my most inspired outlet for such work. And, even more so, I love sharing my creations with people (YOU!!!). To that end, the recipes you’ll find here on my blog are all plant-based and seasonal — my SOUL FOOD. I hope you love them as much as our family does. I love hearing your feedback, so please leave me a comment if you make something.
My maternal grandmother, Mary, was a mother of 10 and was always cooking for people (like 50 strong at Thanksgiving!!!!). I like to think I carry a bit of her legacy and that of my culinary-gifted aunts and uncles and my talented mother when I’m making something in the kitchen. My food is infused with not only love, but a rich history of those who donned an apron long before me.
The offerings in my web shop are all made by hand (my hands) in small batches, often to order. My husband and I forage the island for wild beach plums, rose petals and rose hips every season to use in our organic and/or wild-crafted provisions. This way is a labor of love but we think it’s worth it and I know you will too.
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet. If you’d like to chat or collaborate drop me line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to receive my recipes and shop updates to your inbox, sign up for our mailing list–I promise I won’t spam you!
Blessings and Peace
