The Kitchn's Top 20 Kitchen Tours Of All Time (So Far)

One of our signature features is our kitchen tours. We take a moment every week to peek into one or two real-life kitchens, where real cooking happens. Sometimes these are tiny kitchens, brought to life by a vibrant cook. Other times the kitchens themselves are showplaces — gorgeous and light-filled. Every kitchen has its own story and its own way of inspiring.

Here is a look back at our top 20 tours of all time — the tours that for one reason or another, our readers loved the most! There's a pastry chef's small kitchen in Paris, and a beautiful family kitchen in Portland. Sara Moulton's New York City kitchen is here, as well as a folding jewel box of a space in London.
