Written by celebrated minimalist designer John Ota, this book is a journey through the center of the home through the lens of the architect. Sparked by the author's own quest for the "perfect kitchen" the book is a search for that perfect synthesis of the magnetism of the kitchen as a physical space that also holds a beautifully potent place in the lives and hearts of the people that live and work in it-the secret sauce! Part history, part meditation, this book takes us on a trip through the kitchens of early pilgrim settlers, Thomas Jefferson, Julia Child and Georgia O’Keeffe, Elvis Presley and Louis Armstrong and more. Illustrated throughout, with photographs and also with drawings by the author, this is a book for homeowners, homemakers, interior designers, cooks, lovers of history, lovers of food, and for anyone who-like John Ota before them-is perhaps looking for inspiration for a renovation.
