Before I head back out to Boston with Clay to do another college search....I thought I'd show you around the kitchen! This idea started in this bloggers kitchen and has spread from there.
For a French house this place has large a kitchen, I have a table in there! This table does double as a pastry board because of the beautiful marble top. Sometimes in French homes the kitchen is as small as the WC. We used to have a kitchen that when the oven door was open I had to straddle over the open door to get to the other side. No table in there!
My kitchen is big enough with a little rearranging that I can seat 10 ladies for a cooking demo. Cozy!Anyway, notice my copper and pottery collection. Tajine bases, pottery from Nice and Greece & other parts of France adorn my wall! Home is where my 'stuff' is, right?? I've got a real butcher block, found in an old junk shop in a nearby town. A prize antique marble pedestal table from a Boulangerie sits on top of the kitchen table.
Oh yeah, all that stuff hanging from a ceiling rack is in easy reach to pull down whenever I need it. That is in my laundry room/pantry/second oven and second fridge room.
I'm also afraid that there is another room that had to be given up for my kitchen equipment and cookbooks and my stash of precious items from the States (Campbells soup) and UK (Malden Sea Salt) and Chinatown. You get the picture, the cook gets a break when she needs more room. By the way, the painting that is in the armoire is for sale in 'print' form. She is great artist who lived in Paris for a while did that painting for me, all my favorite French things.I could upload more photos, but I need to pack my bag and take poor sad Max to the kennel!
See you soon!
