We teach good food.

Salt & Lemons’ mission is to equip and inspire people to spend more time in the kitchen and at the table. Our services include kitchen coaching, cooking classes, and editorial-style content creation for food businesses. Read below for more details about what we do.

Kitchen coaching:

If you want to start cooking more of your own meals but aren’t sure how to get started, I’ll help you get a process in place for planning, shopping, cooking, and storing your food. We'll talk through your challenges and goals around planning and cooking meals and put together a plan to get you where you want to be. Every client is different - get in touch for more details about what approach might work best for you. Kitchen coaching is helpful:

  • If you’re setting up the kitchen in your first apartment

  • If you have young children and are trying to juggle the new demands of family life

  • If you’re trying to cook more at home for health or budget reasons but need to learn how.

Cooking classes:

I teach cooking classes of all sizes, ages, and skill levels, whether it’s a one-on-one class to brush up on knife skills, or a girls’ night to add a few new items to your repertoire. Give me a ring to talk through what you have in mind.


I’m the author of two cookbooks, many published recipes, and dozens and dozens of food feature stories. I’ve built and overseen magazine food sections, editorial calendars, and strategies for reaching the right audiences. I love a good story and a good opportunity to engage people around food and cooking. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss food-related content development for your business.

Hi, I'm Leigh.

I'm the founder of Salt & Lemons. I named my little company after two of the most simple and essential ingredients in my kitchen.

I’m a cook, teacher, writer and editor with a background in food education. I’ve been an event producer, a communications consultant, a magazine editor, a waitress, a network-builder and more. I’m also an author - my second book, My Kitchen Chalkboard, was released last spring. It’s a seasonal approach to meal planning and family dinners.

Engaging and inspiring people to spend more time in the kitchen and at the table is my jam. Thanks for coming by! Let's work/cook together! 

PS - I send email newsletters 2x/month. One is focused on events where I’ll be and gives you a seasonal recipe; the other has a little more writing and includes tips and ideas for streamlined home cooking. Sign up below!

OMFG it's here!

OMFG it's here!

My cookbook is here!

My Kitchen Chalkboard is literally an extension of my kitchen.The book is based on the menus and meal plans I create to keep our family fed and myself sane while continuing to develop as a cook. Once I started planning our weekly menus when my 5-year-old was an infant, I quickly discovered the merits of planning meals ahead of time. It conserves time and saves money, cuts down on waste, and allows me to be creative and build my skills within a framework. And most importantly, a good plan helps keep the chaos at bay (somewhat). You can read a blurb from The Boston Globe here

I'm super excited to share My Kitchen Chalkboard with you! I hope it will become a resource for anyone who is trying to juggle all the demands of work and family and still eat and cook well. 

The book is available online on Amazon/Barnes & Noble/Powell's/Harvard Book Store. You can also buy it in person at my local bookstore, Papercuts J.P., where there's a stash of signed copies. Get in touch if you’d like to book me for a cooking class, demo, or a book talk about family dinners, meal planning, and batch cooking.
