It's always funny to me to hear people say that they would entertain more (or at all) if their kitchen was bigger. Truth is, great parties can come from small kitchens. James Beard, American chef and food writer who cultivated the gourmand movement in the USA, lived in a tiny apartment smaller than mine and lead a catering company from his bathtub. He wasn't waiting for the marble endless countertop and Viking stove to appear. Another gal who doesn't squash her cooking due to her small space is Jennifer C from Tiny Urban Kitchen. Someone get this gal a TV show! What she does in her tiny abode makes my mouth water and flushes all the "my kitchen isn't big enough" excuses down the toilet.
And her yummy dish posted today...
Everyone who lives in a small space needs to invest in these books. They're all on amazon and you may be able to find them at your local book shop. Sir Terence Conran is a voice to listen to. His smart ideas on limited square foot living aren't new. He's been studying/developing/writing about this for years.
