A Home Cook's Must-Haves

Photo by David O. Marlow

This family-friendly kitchen has size on its side—“the island is the size of a real island!” the homeowner laughs—but it’s also filled with smart features that make cooking for a crowd easier and more fun. Here, the avid home cook shares a few of his favorites:


“This kitchen really works well because of the circulation space between the counters: People can eat at the bar or work at the sink and there’s still easy access to the refrigerator.”


“When it comes to cabinetry, I like the clean look; too much detail is just a lot of hot air.” These sleek, solid-walnut cupboards were built by Rand Moeller of RMS Cabinets in Cotati, California.


“Our favorite household toy for cooking is our Gaggenau steam oven, which is an amazing substitute for a microwave, convection oven, and even a rice- cooker. You can bake bread in it, you can reheat vegetables or pasta—it’s incredibly versatile.”


Inspired by 1970s supergraphics, the “incredible” Endless Straight fixture, designed by Jason Miller for Roll & Hill, is a modular LED lighting system that can be customized to any length. This one spans nearly the entire width of the 18-foot-long kitchen island.


“This sink is so long and deep, you could bathe a teenager in it. We saw something similar in Rome and had [former “The Brady Bunch” star] Mike Lookinland, owner of Just Add Water Concrete, replicate it. To him, it was this crazy challenge and he absolutely nailed it.” Two Regulator Gooseneck Double-Spout Marquee kitchen faucets by Waterworks provide four spigots.
