About Kitchen Konfidence
Kitchen Konfidence is a collection of recipes and techniques aimed to inspire the home cook to do more in the kitchen.  What you’ll find here:  cooking basics, advanced techniques, detailed explanations, experimental flavor profiles, seasonal ingredients, some humor and desserts… lots of desserts (I will highlight all types of recipes, but desserts are definitely my weakness)!

About Brandon Matzek
Brandon Matzek is a San Diego based photographer, food stylist, home cook and founder of Kitchen Konfidence.  Brandon has always had a love for cooking; however, did not start experimenting in the kitchen until a study abroad semester in Heidelberg, Germany.  With only a few recipes in his repertoire, Brandon was challenged daily to come up with fresh and exciting home cooked meals to avoid eating out every day.  With a little help and inspiration from his family, Brandon was able to cook his way through that semester abroad and even host several dinner parties!  Since then, Brandon has continued to grow, learn and expand his knowledge in culinary disciplines.  Over the years, he has helped a number of his friends become more confident in the kitchen.  Now, Brandon is ready to share his knowledge and viewpoint through delicious recipes and mouth-watering photography.

    Discovered your site today through a recommendation you left on Foursquare. Am delighted at your approach to seasonal cooking. The recipes look fantastic and sound so flavorful. Can’t wait to try the deconstructed eggplant parmesan!
