I have a new hobby (besides this renovation) and It’s cooking. I have always enjoyed cooking because well, it’s a necessity but recently I have decided to take cooking seriously. I want to get really good at it and more importantly, I want to fully enjoy the experience.
The timing is perfect for my new hobby because as we are renovating our new home, and I’m focusing on the kitchen. Anthony and I really want the kitchen to be the center of our home. We want people to gather there to feed their souls and their stomachs.
My idea is to create a Chef’s Kitchen with all the trimmings. I have spent lots of time and attention into the details and the materials, to ensure that this space feels clean and organic. A place to get creative and make memories.
I want to slow down every day to focus and put attention on the food I make and what I feed my family. This involves all the senses. Touching the produce, hearing the sounds in the kitchen, smelling the smells and seeing the colors of the rainbow. I believe that being fully involved in all aspects of eating develops presence and gratefulness for our bodies and our food.
We are so lucky to have a beautiful farmer’s market just steps away from our new home. Anthony and I are so excited to spend Saturday’s picking our favorite seasonal veggies and fruits and cooking in our beautiful new kitchen. I can’t wait to share the finished product.
