Recently I completed work on a gorgeous Kosher kitchen. I love it when I learn from my clients. What? A design expert admitting they learned from their client? Yes sir, I did. My client has traveled the world - to Belgium, on Safari in Africa, Russia - just to name a few. Add to that being exceptionally well read and I was enthralled.
The kitchen is simply knock out. Using all Sub Zero/Wolf appliances, two Franke undermount sinks and KWC faucets, the challenge was to provide enough storage for all dishes, pots and pans used during everyday food prep as well as Jewish holidays.
While storing her cookware in her now organized space, my client began to kasher for the holiday. Any new metal, aluminum container or cookware, glass vessels and utensils require t'vilat kelim (ritual immersion) in a kosher mikvah (ritual bath) prior to use. Passover commemorates the Exodus from Egypt and marks the beginning of the harvest season.
Compact yet concise, this contemporary Kosher kitchen is a chefs' dream to create in. Grey Silestone countertops and a full height backsplash with flecks of reflective mirror sparkle softly in the light. The elegant color and pattern of curly maple wood veneer adds understated drama to the space. Long contemporary bar pulls grace the doors and drawer fronts with just the right touch of metal.
What more can I say about this stunning space? I think a toast to my client is in order....
L'Chayim - to life. And to many happy days and hearty meals with family and friends gathered 'round.
