Inspiration and must-haves for first-time home cooks who want to put the chic in chicken parmigiana.
We put together a fun little list of things in the intersection of design and cooking, because the kitchen isn’t just all grease and sweat.
Words by Sara Rivera
1. Gohar World
Nothing brings people together like tradition and humor, and New York-based Gohar World is proof of that.
Gohar is a universe filled with sublime imagery, dark comedy, and unparalleled taste. Check out their Instagram and ask yourself— “Which came first, ’chic’ or this egg chandelier?”
2. The Kitchen Studio
The Kitchen Studio brings together contemporary artists all over the world in a unique journey of culinary expression. The book carries recipes by the artists together with stories and ephemera that celebrate the kitchen as a place of defeat, exploration, and experimentation.
3. Stone Rolling Pin
No-nonsense functionality brought to you by HAY. Make no-nonsense pizzas (that means no pineapples!) with this sleek and modern rolling pin. The stone material is ideal as it keeps the rolling pin cold to touch. Get stoned, bake, and have fun!
4. Famco Yarn Dyed Oven Mitt
SAFETY FIRST — We’re all about chic without compromise. This affordable and stylish oven mittens from Famco are made with plush cotton and linen blend and a non-slip silicone surface, perfect for securely handling hot pots and pans.
5. Marimekko Aprons
The kitchen is the new playground—just ask Finnish design house Marimekko. Their aprons are made from 100% sustainable materials so they don’t just look good, they’re made with good intentions, too!
6. Everybody Kitchen Timer
Time is on your side with this kooky kitchen timer from DusenDusen. Made in collaboration with Areaware, the Everybody Kitchen Timer is perfect for those who just can’t get a soft boiled egg right (FYI. It’s 6 1/2 minutes).
Bonus! 7. Multipanel BBi Apron
Made by independent fashion label Salad Day, Willar Mateo has designed a limited edition (edition of 12) apron that celebrates maximalism and function. Wear it over your shirt or as a dress, up to you—the world is your oyster!
