We've waited long enough. It's a new year and a new season, and we are kicking off our very first Kitchn Cure. They're on the fifth Eight Step Home Cure over at the home sites, but if you'd rather focus your curative energies on the kitchen, join us for our Eight Step Kitchen Cure, riffing a bit off their format, but also doing our own thing.

We have been thinking about this for a long time, and reading Tara Parker-Pope's piece, Putting Your Kitchen on a Diet, was another prompt to help our readers make their kitchens even healthier and more focused.
The Kitchn Cure is for anyone who wants to get into their kitchen more and cook. While we leave most home-organization and remodeling issues to the home sites, we won't set you off on your cooking cure until your kitchen is in shape.
So get ready in the first two weeks to roll up your sleeves, don some rubber gloves, perhaps, and whip those cabinets, drawers and counter tops into shape. Then we'll venture into stocking the pantry, some basic skills and a few essential techniques for building a menu. Your graduation is, of course, a dinner party. Warn your friends that in mid-May you'll be pulling off the best meal you've ever made.
This Cure isn't just for beginners. It's a chance to get into your kitchen with our spirited online community by your side, encouraging you, sharing tips, asking questions and inspiring. Just like any other day at The Kitchn, but in a very deliberate, measured, eight-week dose.
We need you to sign up and participate in order to make this a success, because like any good classroom, so much of the learning comes from fellow students. It begins March 20th.
