Who says bigger is better? Part of what we love about our weekly Kitchen Tour feature is that we get to see real cooks making real kitchens work. So today we salute the small rental kitchen with all its cramped quarters and quirks, and the owners who devise storage strategies and infuse joy into their space, whatever its handicap. When the love of cooking and eating is the thing, everything else is workable.
