What is Kitchen Survival
The brainchild of a chef and a web designer, Kitchen Survival is a multi-blogger website about food and drink, kitchen gadgets and dining establishments. It’s a place for us to document our food-related trials and tribulations, write about food experiments, review gadgets and restaurants, and discuss the food service industry. Each writer has a unique voice; some work in the industry, others are classically trained but have pursued alternative careers, yet others are stay-at-home-moms, passionate foodies, locavores, vegetarians, people who hate cooking but do it anyway, or bartenders, servers, etc. The common theme is a love of food and drink, dining adventures and culinary experimentation. Learn more about our foodie team of writers.

Who Can Submit Content
Anyone who has a passion for both the culinary world and the written word, who anticipated they can be a solid and consistent contributor. We ask for a steady volume of articles from our writers – at least one new blog a month. Contributors who stand idle for too long will be restricted to a subscriber status and will not be able to publish new blogs without contacting us first. 

What Can I Submit
Personal experience, fresh ideas and original content (including photography). We are not interested in regurgitated recipes from other sources, so don’t bother contacting us if you’re only interested in cooking up something you found on another website, kind of liked it a little bit, and think you should write something about it. That would be the foodie version of “one time at band camp”.

End of winter….the cold, the eternally fickle snow drop strafed by cold rains, the drear days drag on. Where to find some relief? Needing a bright spot, I decide to warm the house – warm my heart – bake cookies. This is usually a quick, easy fix! Continue reading

Our Korean themed cooking day was coming up, and I was armed with a list of Korean words that could either turn out tasty or go horribly, horribly wrong. I don’t know. I know next to nothing about Korean food because our go-to Asian cuisine for cooking at home is usually Thai. Continue reading
