Kitchens: A Room to be Thankful for in Fall!

Contributed by Kthy Flaxman – Happy moments, excitement, boredom and just plain hunger – all lead us to the kitchen!  So many reasons to be there and such a welcoming place.  Fall is traditionally the time when we get back to cooking and the kitchen is ideal for learning and experimenting as we spend more time indoors.

 
The kitchen is a hub for gathering, family breakfast to fabulous feasts and large islands, which lend themselves to visiting as food preparation takes place, will likely always be extremely popular.  “Islands are great for entertaining and for cooking,” architect Monica Kuhn says. “Kitchens tend to have timeless designs but we keep on top of trends too,” Owen Robinson of Weenen General Contracting Limited points out.  “The kitchen is really the epicenter of the home.”

 
Fall is the start of cooking season.  Now we begin to really exercise our cooking chops.  Trying and testing exciting new recipes can be a fulfilling pastime.  Bread can be kneaded or maybe delve into Asian cookery.  Or perfect your mac and cheese. Little kids love to learn how to scoop the flour and families bond over the stove. Kitchens are where we nourish bodies and keep our minds happier too! We flocked to our gardens and outdoor spaces this summer. The kitchen may be our cool weather sanctuary. Here’s to happy cooking, wonderful times and great kitchens this fall!
