Just think about that word for a minute. What images or memories do you go to when you think of kitchen? I’m going to guess that most of us will have fond memories of family events and special times with mom. There is just something really special that happens in the kitchen.
Food is so fundamental to who we are. Our very lives depend on it. Much of our culture is centered on the kinds of foods we eat and how it’s prepared. Families bond around preparation of food, and this happens in a kitchen.
Not all kitchen’s are the same, but they all seem to be the heart of a home. Sure you play games in other rooms, you relax in yet another… but the kitchen is warm and full of happiness.
