Yes We Cook! A Concept for a New White House Kitchen

Take a look at this! English designer Johnny Grey and three partners have put some thought into what a new personal kitchen might look like for the White House. Yes, there is a massive professional kitchen that serves the White House and its guests, but the Residence also has a private kitchen, and the designers created three concepts that open up this kitchen for a modern family focused on fresh food.

Johnny Grey and his studio, a group of designers in the UK, say that they think the President needs a sociable kitchen, at the center of family life, where he and his family and friends can enjoy being together. So they created three different concepts that would remodel the Residence's kitchen into a more modern, open space.

They also teamed up with C'est Si Bon, a cooking school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, which created menus for each space. You can see one above.
