We have a small kitchen so I know about all the modern inconveniences. But I'm still attracted to the eensy basic kitchens found in French or Italian apartments. They seem to still have everything necessary for the gourmand. How much room is really required for fresh bread, cheese, fruit and veggies, and a good wine? And what about those gorgeous kitchens in which every item looks as though it was acquired at an antiques market in France?
When you buy market fresh, and unpackaged food, a lot less room is needed. You end up with more room for those kitchen antiques!
A few basic kitchen towels.
A French glass measuring cup.
American feed sack.
Classic white canisters.
Olive wood spoons from Spain.
Finally, these pictures are for Angela of I'm like A Little Bird who asked where I store dishes.
Lots of storage in my lower cupboards. I have another dresser sideboard in the conservatory/sunroom. And a leaded glass English cupboard in the snuggery. The enormous cupboard below is way too big for the room, but I couldn't live without the storage!
Bon appetit & Ciao! for now!
