Constructing Your Kitchen- A New Weekly Series
October 5, 2011 § 4 Comments
Last Friday when I attended a talk by Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen, I fully expected to be in the company of intense foodies- master food bloggers with ridiculous photography skills and homemade recipes to boot. I was so sure this would be the case, I prepared my questions ahead of time (really!). So you can imagine my surprise when the first question posed came from a 20 something girl sitting in front of me, who candidly asked, “As someone who’s starting their first kitchen, can you give me any tips?” Whaaaaat?
I hold nothing against this girl (it’s a perfectly acceptable question), I was just surprised. First by the fact that I had been so wrong, and second because my first thought after she asked it was- oh I can tell you what to do! I’d love to help! And so I decided to. Across the next few weeks I’ll be conducting a little series each Wednesday focused around constructing a fabulous and well functioning kitchen- everything from which appliances to invest in and not invest in, to why to stay away from butcher blocks, the dried herbs you’ll actually use, and which kitchen tools aren’t worth your time. If there’s an area you’d like me to cover, please let me know! And of course I’d love to hear your tips and tricks as well, so please do share.
I’ll kick things off a little later today with a list of my top ten pantry must haves. Stayed tuned!
