The Kitchen is home to me.
Whether you live in a shophouse, luxury condo, walled villa, sprawling estate, or a subterranean cave like the Catacombs of Paris, the Kitchen is the heart-warming and satisfying hot spot to be.
After necessary ablutions are performed, chemistry is conducted in a sacred ceremony of alchemy and science—with fire, iron, wood and water—all to elevate the spirits of friends, guests, loved ones, and dearest family.
And the best is the sobre mesa, the relaxed and enlivening conversation ‘over the table’ after a fulfilling meal. It includes that post-prandial feeling of complete, gustatory satisfaction that engulfs the senses, allowing a blissful Buddhist smile to spread across one’s face.
That’s the Kitchen to me.
