This post is a bit of a departure of my usual thing, but in all fairness, blogs are often more of a collage than a study of one topic, aren't they?
Facts about me: I love to cook. I once worked as a sous chef at a trendy cafe in San Francisco, which was located across the street from a major cooking school. That's where I learned the chefly things.
I write. A lot.
And me and my family about about to undergo a major house renovation that will leave us without a kitchen for several months.
The market of cookbooks is decidedly skewed toward those who actually have a kitchen. What does a family with young kids do without a room for preparing meals for months?
So begins The Renovation Kitchen.
In this series of blog posts, I'm going to talk about preparing for kitchen loss, setting up temporary cooking facilities, and simple, healthy meals you can make without major appliances on hand. How to survive without a kitchen.
If the blog works well, I'll turn it into a book. Fun!
For this first post, I'll give you a sneak peek of the kitchen pre-renovation. Be warned, a very busy family actually lives here, and that's what it looks like.
Not-so-new but well-loved fridge and original cupboards from the 1950s.
I'll continue this topic later this week with a post on packing up. Specifically, what to put in storage and what to keep out, when you are facing months ahead without a kitchen and still have a family to feed.
