A kitchen witch is a doll, or poppet that originated in Scandinavian countries many years ago. These dolls were made to ward off bad luck and to keep your home safe, warm and protected.
A Kitchen Witch keeps a watchful eye over your meals so they don’t burn or stick. She keeps harmony in your home and is always ready to make sure your cup of tea is absolutely perfect. These dolls were once handed down from mother to daughter or given to a new bride and her home.
Kitchen witches were traditionally hung in the kitchen near the stove, in a window, or the entry to the kitchen. They were made of cloth and sticks and were generally featured as the old crone style witch.
Kitchen Witch Gourmet has moved the Kitchen Witch into a new season. We feature her as a fun, and happy witch. She still holds the same duties as her grandmothers, after all it runs in the family… Only now she rides her broom with happiness, and joy. Out and about with a wave, and a hello.
