So, given Nora's post today about one of our favorite food writers, Melissa Clark, and her way of making DIY Maraschino Cherries, it's only fair to give you a sneak peek into an upcoming tour of Melissa's Brooklyn kitchen.We'll actually be doing two tours of this kitchen: a "before" and an "after." Melissa and her husband are about to demolish the entire thing. They have a baby on the way, and a renovation they've been wanting to do for years. We'll cover it head to toe next week. In the meantime, here are a few shots from when I visited for the "before" tour.
