Cool…Julia Child’s kitchen
In November 2001 when Julia Child moved back to her native California, she donated her kitchen to the Smithsonian Museum. Her husband, Paul, designed the kitchen for her in 1961 and it became the setting for her cooking show for seven years.
Lining the walls, an impressive collection of pots, pans and other kitchen implements were used to create her classic french dishes. Though the array and quantity of kitchen equipment clearly indicates Julia’s professional status, the feel of the kitchen is definitely domestic. It is a place for family and friends to gather together to enjoy a good meal and enjoy each others company.
Even in a place like Hong Kong, where it is easy to go out to eat and where kitchens are often designed without ovens; it is important to remember that a kitchen is the hub of the home, a creative place to express yourself and your love of your family and a place to be together. Great kitchens have good equipment. The best place to go for good quality equipment is the Panhandler in Central, Sogo in Causeway Bay and Wing On in Central.
