I can't really complain too much about my kitchen. We moved to Munich from the US 10 months ago, and my new kitchen does a good job utilizing space. I do wish I could change the stove and upgrade the lighting. But overall it's very functional and for a European apartment kitchen it's quite spacious

I honestly think, this is what they need to teach in schools. I’ve been there, cooking is my hobby, I’m passionate about design and building. We have parallel stories on how we made it. I own 3 companies. Mentoring my niece. However I see millennials missing passion.


Kitchen list takes me to an additional plating site. would like to have that list to ensure I have all the tools in my tool box. Here I had 30 minutes to make the best hamburgers for six birthday well wishers..........

I love my kitchen! I've spent nearly two decades tweaking, collecting items for it and revising it, but this lesson has made me think I might want to do a bit of updating.

I like to do the organization thing when I cook . All ingredients set out and prepped ahead of time. All tools and equipment set out and ready. Anything not related to food and cooking do not belong in a kitch if your roommate is trying to rebuild a carburetor in the counter then it needs to go.

Chef Ramsay's passion, and rigor for his art is contagious. I am not, nor will I be a professional chef in this lifetime, but I do expect my wife, family and friends will benefit from these lessons as much as I will.

I like to keep my kitchen nice and tidy! This was the morning after cooking a four courser for seven guests and drinking lots of wine. Because I cook, serve and eat with my guests my kitchen normally goes into disarray at some point.

This is my current apartment kitchen. Not the optimal, "reach-behind-you-fridge" location, but the L shape seems to work well. As far as items in the kitchen essentials checklist, the only ones that I need are - parchment paper, boning knife, and a larger cutting board. If I had to redo the kitchen, I would have a taller floating island - this could double as a place to sit/eat as well as a larger surface to prep without having to lean over. Outside of the kitchen small kitchen makeover, I need to spend some time organizing the Tupperware and paring down on the amount of glassware.

Hi! This link for the comprehensive guide on handling, selecting, and caring for knives doesn't seem to work. Can this be corrected or have people found the correct link? Thanks!

Hello Everyone, To answer the assignment questions: Do I love or hate my kitchen? I am content with it currently but some upgrading would be cool. What I would like to update or add? Well, I am currently using a desk for an island which is a must, but a real island would be cool. Also a dishwasher would be awesome and a larger fridge and freezer. How would I remodel my kitchen? Well first I would move into my own house. Secondly, have black modern cabinets, white ones are too hard to keep clean. Stainless steel appliances and preferably not the washer and dryer in the kitchen. (Not in the picture, well perhaps the corner of it.) Not saying I do not ENJOY having my own washer and dryer and totally blessed, (Love it!) but if it were my preference, the laundry room would be most ideal. - A real granite counter top, not a fake one. - More cupboard for I am running out of space. - Six or eight burners on the stove and perhaps a gas stove. Also with a warming drawer. - A sink tap with a sprayer on it. - A nice back splash and not drywall. - Pantry That is all I can think of for now. Enjoy!
