IS it obvious to say the pandemic exerted a range of unforeseen societal impacts? In hind-sight,
the fact that many turned to home improvement projects as a way to cope or simply fill
the hours does not seem all that irrational or unexpected. For many homeowners, the result
of having so much downtime was that some of the issues and problems inside their homes
suddenly became impossible to ignore.
The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, but with restaurants closing and very few
dining options available in 2020, it became even more important.
Being forced into the kitchen to prepare a meal doesn’t have to be a bad thing, however. It can
be something to be savored and enjoyed — especially when the cooking and eating take place in
kitchens like those presented here.
