The friends who gather in it to enjoy good food and wonderful conversations... ten people can sit around my table when it's open!
Describe a challenge you've overcome or a smart resource you've found for your kitchen.:
Figuring out where to place a (relatively) big table was a bit of a challenge. In the end, I built a bench for the table that took advantage of the weird shape of the room, and wrapped yarns around it, inspired by this post: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/5-projects-to-t-148094.
Also, my kitchen (like most German kitchens) came only with a sink and a stove, so making it fit for cooking and hosting on a grad student budget wasn't so easy. Flea markets, DIY projects found on the internet and Ikea were great resources!
What's your favorite meal to cook here?:
This changes weekly! The last meal I've cooked for friends almost systematically becomes my new favorite!
