About

Hello and thank you for being here!

The Flying Kitchen is a cooking resource created and operated by Shannon Vavich – a Marine Corps Spouse of 25 years, mother to seven great kids, chef of 23 years, cake artist, recipe developer and cooking teacher.

Shannon lives in the south of Germany with her family, in a four story house in the middle of a Medieval Era village. Because of her husband’s military career, she has studied food, culture and cooking all over the world including Italy, Spain, France, Greece, England, Morocco, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, New Orleans and Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

Shannon’s daily life is filled with caring for her family, home and pets. She believes that with the right knowledge and support, cooking wonderful food can be a great artistic endeavour that can express true caring and love, while providing peace and tranquility to the cook as well.

This cooking resource of recipes and lessons is a small collection of Shannon’s body of work, and it’s made ad-free and free to all because of the support of Patreon pledges by Shannon’s loyal followers.

If you’d like to support this work, and if you’d like to enjoy the special benefits available to pledgees like exclusive printable recipes, e-books, home management lessons, downloads, menu planning, kitchen art, coloring pages, contests, prizes, exclusive behind the scenes, exclusive podcast, merchandise and more, please visit Shannon’s patreon group and pledge $5 a month here.
