They are places to feed the family, entertain guests and
escape from their hectic lives. We take you inside the
kitchens of three celebrity chefs.

THEY SAY THE KITCHEN IS THE HEART OF THE HOME. After all, it’s where family and
friends always gather. Kitchens are also personal. They reflect our home life and heritage, our
cooking style and aesthetic preference. Perhaps that’s why many of us never tire of looking
at other people’s kitchens for design and lifestyle inspiration. In that spirit, here we’ve set
our sights high and invited ourselves into the homes of three celebrated local chefs who
rock — in their restaurants, their business ventures, and, yes, onstage — to see what makes
them tick in their kitchens. We admired their cabinetry, marveled over appliances and even
got to play with fire. And we left with our curiosity, and our appetites, very satisfied.
