Kitchen witchcraft, or kitchen witchery, is a form of witchcraft practiced concurrently with tasks centered around the kitchen, such as cooking and baking. Like other forms of witchcraft, kitchen witchcraft centers around the practice of magic which may or may not be combined with other forms of spirituality.[1]

Other uses of the phrase "kitchen witch"[edit]

A "kitchen witch" may also refer to a human figurine placed in kitchens for good luck. These dolls are made from materials such as fabric, corn husks, and dried fruits and may be in the form of a witch riding a broom. Such dolls traditionally protect residents and visitors to the home and also guard against cooking failures in the kitchen.[1]
