My name’s Joel Kirstein. By day, I work in marketing. After taking a career break in 2013/14 doing a ski season, I was inspired by some great chefs I worked with (credit to Tony and Dean). So now, by weekend I like to make stuff in my kitchen.
The things I really like to make are sauces, jams, pickles, relishes and one of my favorites – infusions.
I’m by no means a chef, but I like to experiment. I’ll be posting the results on this blog – Pan and Bottle. I hope you enjoy them!
