Deb Perleman’s kitchen is even smaller than this one
Do you complain about your kitchen being too small, too cluttered or just plain uninspiring? I at times, wish that I had the latest and greatest gadgets and of course more easily accessible cupboards to house them. But I really should not be wanting more kitchen space — I must confess that my kitchen is fairly large with plenty of room.
Your kitchen status is a great excuse not to cook but here is a story of an enterprising woman who is a top food blogger and cook book author who does not have the “ideal” kitchen. She is self taught and more importantly she has the TINIEST KITCHEN that you can imagine. Deb Perlman of Smitten Kitchen makes comfort foods that are practical for any home cook, however experienced.
Her kitchen is 42 square foot, has a single counter, tiny stove, checkered floor and a noisy window at the end to the avenue below. The blog’s photos are amazing — all taken during the cooking process as well as the end result. You can read about her on this NPR feature and do visit her blog.
