I see a bunch of new visitors, and we like that indeed: Thank you for checking us out.

If you poke around the archives a bit, you’ll get the gist of what we do here. UrbanMonique is designed to bring a bit of the professional Chef’s craft to your home kitchen. Whether it’s tried and true recipes, a little food science and history, or tips and tricks behind the operation of a professional kitchen, I believe you’ll find something to be inspired by. We strive to make sourcing, cooking, growing and preserving food fun, and maybe even interesting. 

Please consider signing up via email to get notified when a new post comes out; we put up new threads weekly, and often enough more frequently than that.

And finally, we’d love to do something special up for y’all. If you need a custom recipe, are stumped by a food or process, or bored with the same old thing, leave a message and we’ll get right back to you. Just this week we’ve worked up puréed broccoli, a custom bacon cure, and a house made piña colada. What can we do for you?

Cheers, and happy cooking!
