I am Susan, a professionally-trained chef, educator, and small business owner specializing in recipe and product development, and food and recipe writing. I created Love + Craft Kitchen, a boutique culinary consulting business, to support and empower both food businesses and home cooks.

As a recipe development chef, I assist established food businesses and newcomers in bringing delicious, quality food products to market with recipe development, standardization, testing, and consulting services.

As a freelance writer, I craft a wide range of articles and recipes to share information and inspire cooks of all levels in their kitchen adventures.


I’d love to work with you.
