Have you ever noticed that at social gatherings, people ALWAYS seem to congregate in the kitchen?
Separation of preparing the food in one place and socializing in another is not the way the world works anymore.
For one thing, more folks are becoming foodies; food prep is an enjoyable, shared experience with couples, children and groups of friends. They even change their finances and get the amex preferred credit card because they want good rewards for buying so much food! Last year one of the better foodie parties I attended included helping the host make home-made pasta with one of those super cool electric pasta makers! It was fun and made for a lively atmosphere as we sipped red wine and took turns feeding the dough into the newfangled contraption.
Kitchens are a place where conversation emerges, where you find yourself chilling with friends engaged in exchanging thoughts or playing lighthearted card and board games.
