What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? Biggest challenge: create a small room as a micro-laundry and place for cleaning stuff, since this is a no-closet house. We brilliantly completed the mission, by building our wooden box or "shower unit" as we call it.

Give Maria a THUMBS UP if you think this kitchen belongs in the finals!

What's the story of your kitchen?
This is the kitchen no kitchen in the rented flat: it was empty as we came in except for the sink; we bought the essential, managing to reuse some pieces of furniture we already had and a bookcase as cupboard.

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
Soups during the winter, cocktails at aperitivo time.
