About Adventure Kitchen
Adventures in food for curious cooks.
About Me: Lynley Jones
Hi there! I'm Lynley Jones, the creator of Adventure Kitchen. I'm a curious cook, writer and mom who likes to travel and learn, and bring people together over food. Based in Montclair, New Jersey, I love sharing new discoveries with anyone polite enough to feign interest, especially the visitors to this website and the adults and children in my cooking classes.
About Adventure Kitchen
I created Adventure Kitchen to be a destination for curious cooks of every age. This site is 100% ad-free, and I plan to keep it that way. Follow our food blog for new recipes each week, and quirky recipe series such as Why Did the Chicken Cross the Globe? and A Series of Unfortunate Recipes (based on the Lemony Snicket books and Netflix series).
Shop Adventure Kitchen
We launched the Adventure Kitchen Store last December! We've got a growing selection of Adventure Kitchen Spices, plus aprons and more. Visit us online, and soon - at a farmer's market near you!

A Salty detail
I use Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt as my go-to salt for everyday cooking, so all the recipes on this site were created with that salt. I'm not affilliated wth the brand in any way at all, but it's a standard for a lot of professional cooks, and I like that salt is the only ingredient - no anti-caking agents or anything else. What you need to know is that the crystals are coarser than regular table salt, so they measure differently. If you are using regular table salt or another finely ground salt, try using about half as much as I call for, and then add more to taste if needed. (And by the way "to taste" means seasoning just enough to make it so delicious you just can't stop eating it!)
