Welcome to the Renaissance Kitchen...the Culinary Art of Celebration. Inspired by the passion for the Way of the Renaissance Man lifestyle website and podcast starring Jim Woods, the Renaissance Kitchen is a natural extension of that passion for living a rational life by practicing the third area of the Renaissance Man Ethos, celebration, specifically using the culinary arts. The Renaissance Kitchen is a lifestyle website for deepening your connections with food, your health, family, friends and creating meaningful gatherings.
