Welcome to Soul Kitchen!

Over the past fifteen years Rochel and I have hosted thousands of people for Shabbat and Yom Tov meals. Our goal has always been to create an environment that blends good food, good drink and great company. On this blog we hope to create a glimpse and a taste of these acclaimed Shabbat dinners on Castle Street by sharing the recipes of some of our favourite dishes, reviewing the range of whiskies and beers that graces our table, and distilling the thoughts and ideas that bring these dinners to life.

So while 'street lights share their hollow glow' come inside to our 'soul kitchen' and 'warm your mind near our gentle stove.'
