Kitchen Confidante®


Be the first to review!

Hi, I’m Liren.  I am a mother of two and wife to one, currently based in the SF Bay Area, land of fresh foods and sublime wine.  I have lived in foodie meccas such as New York (where I was born and raised), Chicago, and Los Angeles.

While I started Kitchen Confidante® in the early part of 2010, in many ways, this blog has been over 15 years in the making. When I began cooking in earnest, I learned to cherish recipes that remind me of family, friends and life events – this space allows me to share my battered, overstuffed recipe binder and the stories behind them. Along the way, I have found that my blog gives voice to my creative side, whether it is developing my own recipes or working on my photography.

I also can’t help but share the vibrant culinary culture I have learned to embrace in the San Francisco Bay Area. One of the most rewarding aspects of blogging is connecting with a world of like-minded people. I enjoy meeting and telling the stories behind passionate local food artisans and winemakers. And I love hearing back from readers who take the time to tell me when they try a recipe!

I plan to share with you anything I find truly worthy of a place in the kitchen.  It may be an ingredient, a wine, a recipe – anything that enhances our escapades in the kitchen and makes our taste buds smile.  I hope you enjoy it and visit again soon!
