Our Mission...

"To simplify the world of food so you can make
educated choices in the kitchen.

The Founder

Hey there, my name's Michael and I am the creator of Robust Kitchen. 

I created this resource to empower those in the kitchen by teaching them the fundamentals of food science. We believe the road to becoming a successful cook is by acquiring a solid understanding of both the science, and the art of food.

Food Scientist


Caitlin is a Ph.D student and chocolate researcher at Colorado State University. Her research in the Food Science program focuses on chocolate fermentation (that’s right, it’s a fermented food!) and small-batch post-harvest processing techniques. When she is not acting in her capacity as resident chocolate guru, she researches other fermented foods and beverages like beer, sausage, and natto. Caitlin was drawn to fermented foods while living in rural Spain for six years, where she was exposed to traditional, time-honored practices of food preservation. At home, she practices Bollywood dance for fun and is followed everywhere by two small pet rabbits.

I truly think there is nothing more meaningful than friends and family gathered around a table of good food.
