“But the kitchen will not come into its own again until it ceases to be a status symbol and becomes again a workshop. It may be pastel. It may be ginghamed as to curtains and shining with copper like a picture in a woman’s magazine. But you and I will know it chiefly by its fragrances and its clutter…. There will be something sweet-smelling twirling in a bowl and something savory baking in the oven. Cabinet doors will gape ajar and colored surfaces are likely to be littered with salt and pepper and flour and herbs and cheesecloth and pot holders and long-handled forks. It won’t be neat. It won’t even look efficient. but when you enter it you will feel the pulse of life throbbing from every corner.”
Phyllis McGinley

  1. So many wonderful details to look at, Emilio, and great timing capturing each of those faces in a window (though you did miss the flying flour) 😉 Love the woman looking at her cell phone. Clearly, the dinner rush was over…


  2. Emilio I love the look on the ladies face looking through the window from the other side. You see it best in the larger shot. So dear reader click on it and see Emilios great work.


    1. Thanks, Patti. Hard to screw it up when the entire place is highly polished tiles and stainless steel counter tops!


    1. Thanks, Joe. The only one actually working was the one in the background. The others seemed to be joking around or talking on their cell phones.

        1. Joe, Joe, Joe. No one says lolly-gagging nowadays! I don’t mean to insult you but maybe that young wife of yours can teach you some of today’s vernacular?
