About Us

Welcome to The Kitchen Professor

Do you want:

  • Cool information about food?
  • Interesting and tasty recipes?
  • A nerdy outlook on anything in the kitchen?

We are a small team of people who share a passion for food and cooking. It all started back in 2014 when Doug took his engineering degree and started applying it to food. There may have been a stopwatch involved. Our goal is to give you math and logic in your journey towards cooking well and having fun in the kitchen. We look at kitchen tools and gadgets as well as delicious recipes and give you the advice we would want.

As Seen on Kitchen

If you answered “Yes” to any of those questions, then, my friends, you are in the right place. My name is Doug, also known as The Kitchen Professor. No, I’m not really a professor.

Doug – The Kitchen Professor


The Kitchen Professor grew out of a modest blog that was dedicated to vintage cast iron – Wagner Cast Iron in case you’ve heard of it. That site isn’t out there anymore but you can find most of those old posts in the cast iron section.

I post a few recipes and review some products, too.

Here are some fun facts about me:

  • I’ve been cooking ever since I can remember. I first perfected the art of a grilled cheese.
  • When my mom taught me how to make scrambled eggs for the first time, I cracked the egg directly on the counter and failed to get any of the egg in the bowl.
  • I used to bake a lot of bread and I loved it.
  • But right now I am staying away from most grains, especially gluten-rich grains like wheat.

Rhonda grew up with parents who gardened, hunted, fished, canned, and preserved food. Her mother actually was a professional cook and Rhonda credits her with teaching her everything from how to make homemade biscuits and gravy to what kind of meals to serve for different occasions.

In the kitchen, Rhonda uses a mix of old-fashioned country cooking and up-to-date fads in the kitchen, often experimenting with replacing higher-calorie or fat ingredients with healthier options that still retain the delicious flavors of the originals. She also enjoys watching cooking shows and videos to learn new tips and tricks for food storage, preparation, and presentation.
