Recipe Development

Crafting individual and full-concept recipes that support a healthier lifestyle

Inspiration, imagination, research, and experimentation are key components to the recipe development process. Whether starting from scratch or enhancing what is already in place, Love + Craft Kitchen creates recipes to fit each client’s brand, audience, and preparation requirements.

We can’t say enough about how fun it was to work with Chef Susan at Love + Craft Kitchen to create custom recipes for our Bed and Breakfast–our guests simply rave about her breakfast creations both in flavor and appearance. We appreciated Susan’s professionalism and attention to detail in structuring the recipes, including presentation tips, so the recipes were easy to prepare and produced quality dishes each time. Thank you for being a part of making our business a success!”
