Nigella Lawson On Kitchens:

"'Kitchen' is probably one of the most evocative words in the English language. Yes, it is a noun denoting a room and its purpose, but more than that, it is a word resonant with symbolism. It conjures up warmth and welcome, safety and security, in short, the very notion of home. The kitchen is an intensely intimate domestic space, and yet it links us to the earth through the foods we bring into it. For me, it is essential to let these foods rule. I don't want them confined to cupboards; I want them on show. A tangle of vine tomatoes on a cake stand is less expensive and more uplifting than any amount of flowers." [WSJ]
