the blog

Welcome to Kitchen Window, a blog that mostly revolves around art and food. Kitchen Window evolved from another blog called Mind Chatter, which was started during the busy hurricane year of 2005 as what I called a “hurricane project.”  I was a high school photography teacher that year and school was canceled almost every week for another hurricane. That’s when I learned more about blogging and started posting things that I found interesting as a way to archive them all in one place as well as share them with other people. On Kitchen Window I mostly post recipes, events, and happenings in the art and food scene.


My name is Lara Stein Pardo. I am a visual artist and cultural anthropologist based in Miami, FL, currently working towards my PhD at the University of Michigan.  I am also a Fellow at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. For more about my artwork, research, and writing please visit www.larasteinpardo.com.
