What would you like to see happen in the kitchen in this day and age?

Hi there everyone! I'm about to finish up writing my cookbook and I was just wanting to find out from anyone who wishes to share what they remember about an experience in the kitchen while growing up.

It could be a memory, a smell of a favorite dish cooking, a favorite celebration along with how you see your life in your kitchen these days! I'm looking for a comparable from then and now.

Most of all I was hoping from the responses I get to make my cookbook stand out because it will be a collaboration of ideas from a large and varied group of people such as yourselves of the before and now of our kitchen memories!!

Many memories.
From SC rice and fried chicken,to IA maidrites and rhubarb pie.

It all comes from the heart and it brings family together.

Good food,soso company....it's family,not your chosen friends.

I remember the kitchen being the center of activity in the Fall. There were eight kids and we lived on a farm, so we kept a large garden and fruit trees. I remember bushels of fruits and vegetables waiting to be washed, cut up and packed into jars for canning. There would be dozens of jars on the counter cooling. Finally, everything was moved to the basement and set on shelves for the winter.

Every single time I see, smell or taste green onions I am transported back to my grand mother's garden.

As kids, when we would travel as a family 500 miles to our grand parent's house for the summer, the first stop was her garden. There were many things we would dig for...carrots, potatoes, strawberries and peas...but for some reason the smell, look and taste of a green onion takes me back 40 years...never fails.

Granny's garden was a time of innocence, happiness, long days of summer, first kisses on the beach and so much more.

Peace

Thanks for the replies so far, just need the comparable please!

Memories in the kitchen are a wonderful thing, they take you back to a time when things were more simple, happier, life was a lot less stressful, things were fresh, family and friends would gather as you have all spoke of!

Now if those are your good memories....

What do you find missing in the kitchen from then to now?

Space!!
Kitchens these days are too small.
I like those great big kitchens with the big wood table that seats 12. You could do so much on those.

Indoor wood fire ovens. To many building regulations, and again, kitchens are too small.

I love the idea of a big open fireplace in a kitchen, set up for cooking with huge stew pots, and the pizza oven, the great big table, with big doors going outside to another cooking area. Copper pots hanging from the ceiling, herbs growing in every _.....

A Baker's table
Fresh ingredients, herbs, spices.
And a wood stove. Nothing better than the smell of a wood burning fire with hot coffee and fresh baked bread in the morning.

Peace
