Hi and welcome to The Corner Kitchen! I’m Kelli, a 30-something gal in New York City getting creative & working wonders in my 20 sq. ft. kitchen (well, 20 sq. ft. might actually be generous!). If I had to pick the one thing that I’m most passionate about, it would be cooking….and eating. Luckily the two go hand in hand. I’ve loved being in the kitchen, cooking & baking, and feeding other people for as long as I can remember.
In 2011, I followed my passion for cooking to the French Culinary Institute in New York City and graduated from the Classic Culinary Arts Program. This was easily one of the most intense and rewarding experiences of my life — and one that completely reaffirmed my love of being in the kitchen.
The Corner Kitchen is just that, a very tiny corner of my apartment with a tiny stove, a tiny refrigerator, a bar-size sink, no dishwasher, and veerrrry limited counter space. But none of that has stopped me from doing what I love. I’ve become very creative and I’ve found ways to make it work.
I’m excited to take you along on my culinary adventure! Along the way I’ll share my favorite recipes, my culinary experiments and some of my favorite products. I like to keep my cooking simple, seasonal & fresh, and full of flavor. Outside the kitchen, I’m a triathlete, avid cyclist and runner, and occasional yoga-goer. While I have a huge sweet tooth, healthy cooking and eating are the core to maintaining my active lifestyle.
