The Kitchen

The 50-cent tour of the Victory or Death Kitchen (as of 2011):

The Kitchen

This is the range side and where most of the real cooking happens.

  • Waring Pro deep fryer – gets more use than I thought it would.
  • Cuisinart Food Processor 
  • Electrolux 4-burner gas cooktop. (Good high heat, but the knobs melt.)
  • Le Creuset crock which is holding spatulas, ladles, spoons, etc.
     
  • I keep these out all the time as part of my mise en place:
    • Salt, pepper grinder, sea salt and balsamic vinegar for quick prep and seasoning.
    • Flour, corn starch, and sugar jars for prep and sauce making.
  • In the cabinets are spices, oils (in squeeze bottles), measuring cups, pots, pans, etc.
     
  • Masamoto Tsukiji knives
  • Crappy GE builder grade fridge
  • Crappy GE builder grade microwave (which I have made to vent outside rather than blow all over the kitchen)

The Kitchen

Here is the other side!

Other Essentials:

The other side of the kitchen / breakfast area…

The Kitchen

The table affectionately known as the “beater table.”  Part time photo studio, family feasting spot and snack repository.

The Kitchen

The dogs; Truffles (left) and Zoey (right) can usually be found here, waiting for dinner time.

The Kitchen

We also have this formal setup for the rare “company” and “entertaining” needs.

Let’s not forget the other kitchen…

The Kitchen

I love grilling… and I love Weber grills.  I’ve written about them before, and I still believe I will never buy another brand. I’m using a Genesis E320 and couldn’t be happier with it.
