About The Cook & The Craftsman

One is a a recipe tester, developer, and editor who earned a Masters in Gastronomy, and the other is a classically-trained professional preservation carpenter. Together, they make the Cook and the Craftsman.

As the fates would have it, they recently purchased a 1915 craftsman bungalow in the Willamette Valley--wine, yes please!--and have moved all the way from Boston to restore it to its former glory. Seemed like a perfectly good idea at the time.

Join them as they demolish (food and drywall), dig through architectural salvage yards, create recipes in a toaster oven, tackle major renovations, and hopefully create their dream home.
