As a teenager or young adult, I never felt that I “loved to cook”. For me, it was a chore or something that I “had” to do because my mom told me to help in the all-dreaded kitchen. However, now, married to someone who enjoys cooking, I have a new outlook and perspective. We are “Cooking Experiences” together and creating memories with our meals! Many factors contribute to this love or hate relationship that so many have with cooking; personality traits, prior cooking experiences, knowledge passed down from one generation to the next. If you can shift your mindset to “I want to cook experiences,” you can actually enjoy the time spent in your kitchen.
Kitchens, In General
Kitchens are central to many homes, often serving as not only a place for preparing meals but also a gathering spot for family and friends. They come in a wide range of styles and designs, varying based on functionality, size, aesthetics, and cultural and regional preferences.
The 1950s kitchen was considered the first great age of the "modern kitchen". Labor-saving bubble shaped appliances, bright colors and the novelty of fitted units moved the kitchen from darkness into light, where it became the domain of a happy housewife and the heart of the home.
What's in a Name?
You might remember that famous line from William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” Juliet is expressing her frustration that their love is hindered by their feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets, who are opposed to their relationship based solely on their names. She offers "That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet." Juliet is pleading with her family to see past Romeo’s given name and appreciate his true heart and character.
