There is nothing more American than the holiday season. It doesn’t matter if its Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, our attention turns to family gatherings, celebrations, and dinner parties. The holidays are a time for families to come together and create new memories and to share and celebrate time-honored traditions. A time to reconnect with family and friends and to embrace the past through stories, songs, photos and recipes, a time to pass along a family legacy to a new generation.
During this time of the year, the kitchen becomes the center of all family activity, a beehive of activity flexible and efficient stage for prepping cooking serving and entertaining holiday guests. The perfect Entertaining Kitchen should be designed in such a way to ensure the success of the home chef and the holiday cooking experience.
The Entertaining Kitchen is first and foremost a space for gathering, an arena that provides for everyday function and style, yet leaps into action when called upon. The kitchen must be viewed as a whole as we must understand the harmony and balance of every detail, from the largest stewpot to the smallest teaspoon to calculate the effective use of space, as well as the right appliance features and cooking innovations to ensure that the holiday feast finishes at the right time, uses less energy to prepare and are of the finest quality and craftsmanship. Unlike days gone by, when the kitchen was off limits to all, today we find that everyone is welcome in the Entertaining Kitchen where family and guests or invited, if not encouraged to participate in the ritual of preparation. With proper design and planning, you can make the difference between your kitchen being the life of the party, or a holiday meltdown.
