As I say, if it's a starter book you're looking for this does have a lot of info, but keep a healthy dose of scepticism and if anything interests you please read more into it to give you the full picture.
Rachel has set out a personal, seasonal way to live a pagan lifestyle that is useful to beginners, wherever they live, that is informative without being stuffy and set out in a direct and easy to use way.
All the basics are here for you to build on, with an overview of festivals, moon workings, the elements, energy work and magic. She gives recipes, spells and meditations that are simple but effective ways of getting you started and able to create your magical home and life.
Traditional witches didn’t have temples and the nearest they ever got to an established meeting place was a remote grove in a wood or a cunningly concealed cave – most of the time their witchcraft was practiced in the privacy of their own kitchens. If this seems rather mundane, then we need to remind ourselves that the hearth fire is one of the most sacred elements of old witchcraft; and this is what Rachel ‘Tansy’ Pattersen harnesses in her series of ‘kitchen witch’ books. Her first book ...
Pagan Portals: Kitchen Witchcraft
Written in an informal, chatty style that invites the reader to: “Pull up a chair, have a cup of tea, sit back and take a glimpse into the world of Kitchen Witchcraft”, this slim volume gives a valuable insight into the secret world of a witch’s kitchen: what they do in there and how they do it. Packed full of ideas for crafting such as washes and smudges for your home and your body, witch bottles, incense, medicine bags, meditations, magic powders and offerings, a brief glimpse into the meaning of the Sabbats, moon working, the Elements and candle magic. An excellent introduction for those who interested in following the Path of the old ‘parish pump’ style of witchcraft.

Grimoire of a Kitchen Witch
Rachel’s second book is essentially a ‘Book of Shadows’, describing what it means to be a witch, how they work, what they do and how they celebrate the turning of the seasons. Like the previous title, it is packed full of information about all sorts of subjects from a breakdown of rituals and magical tools to reading auras and rites of passage, along with meditations, recipes for oils, incenses and spells and a huge amount of crafts to make for each Sabbat. The author admits this is a personal approach to witchcraft and although it doesn’t follow any particular tradition, it still manages to give a highly informative overview of the witch’s Craft.

A Kitchen Witch’s World of Magical Herbs and Plants
Due for publication 31st October 2014 this third ‘kitchen witch’ title reveals that every plant, every flower, every herb and every tree has energy - and that energy has magical properties. Here Rachel Patterson takes us on a journey into the magical world of herbs and plants, explaining their magical uses, the folklore and history surrounding them, and practical magic – because this book is not about medicinal herb uses, but about magical ones. A comment from one of the publisher’s readers is well worth noting: “What struck me immediately here was the phrase: ‘There are lists of magical correspondences in books and on the net and I will give you lots of ideas and examples within these pages too, but at the end of the day it is you that decides what works for your particular need. Just because someone else says one herb is good for prosperity doesn’t mean it is necessarily the right one for you, if you really strongly feel that it is better for healing then go with your instinct’.” A book to look forward to reading ...
Too many people writing on pagan subjects only have a limited experience to draw on but this cannot be said of Rachel Patterson, whose Craft credentials are impeccable. She has been a witch for many years, having worked through the three Wiccan degrees (with two different groups), becoming a High Priestess in 2011. Exploring many different disciplines along the way, she is also a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids; has studied with Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone and contributes articles regularly to a variety of pagan magazines. When reviewing a book I want to know whether an author is qualified and experienced to write on a subject and Rachel Patterson’s antecedents pass with flying colours – here is an author well-worth following.
Melusine Draco : Principal of the Coven of the Scales.
