I love coming up with new dishes. I love discovering new spices or new vegetables that I’ve never cooked with before. My kitchen is my art studio. Which has only made me realize that I want to completely re-vamp my studio and add/remove all kinds of things. Those conversations make my husband cringe, but not to worry, I can make due with what I have!
My husband added a pre-island in my kitchen for me. The staples in my prep area consist of my Cutco Knife block. It’s amazing how many different knives there are any how I have found a different use for all of them. Other staples: kosher salt, pepper grinder, garlic cloves (I always have one ready to go), small bottles of infused olive oils (you never know when the mood will strike and I’ll use one in a recipe) and room temperature butter. What are some of your staples in your prep area?
Here are some photographs that I find inspiring and make me want to get creative with my cooking!
