It is exciting to work in, see, and observe other people's kitchens. What we find exciting is that while many of the same base elements exist, from knives to stoves, each kitchen has its own signature style. Learning from other kitchens and their environments has been instrumental in our growth and understanding of cooking. Every kitchen leaves it's imprint, no matter how long or short our visit. Just as the way a cook handles his or her knives tells volumes about their personality, each kitchen is a clear illustration of it's chef. We learn something new in all of them.
