Cooking and receiving people. If these are the things that you most enjoy doing in life, then you need a gourmet space in your home. This is the perfect environment to bring these two pleasures together.
But before starting to plan your space, it is important to understand the concept of the term "gourmet", the French word that has been so successful. The term refers to a style of cooking more elaborate, refined and that meets more accurate tastes in relation to the quality of the ingredients and the visual presentation of the dishes.
"Gourmet" is also associated with the judicious and artistic way of preparing food and beverages and also the pleasure of cooking and enjoying a meal with loved ones. But how can all this interfere with the setting up and decoration of an environment? If you want to create a gourmet space you need to privilege this concept in the choice of equipment, furniture and decoration.
One common mistake is to believe that kitchen and gourmet space are one and the same. They are not. The main difference between them is the setting up of the environment that should be planned so that it is possible to cook, receive and interact with people in one place. What is not always possible in a traditional kitchen.
By now you should be thinking that creating a gourmet space is very expensive. Ledo mistake. The gourmets spaces have nothing to do with daring projects and out of reality. They can and should adapt to every kind of taste and budget.
The gourmets spaces can be external, with barbecues, stove and oven wood or internal, often integrated to the own kitchen. Or, if you have a spacious kitchen, you can turn it into a gourmet space. The style of the decoration of the gourmets spaces is also to the taste of the owner. It can be modern, rustic, sophisticated, clean. As you wish.
