    One of my favourite food writers. His blog is intertaining and his minamlist recipes are terrific. .

    And he does all this cooking in a 6 ' x 7' kitchen


    And of course, he got the "How can you possibly cook in a space that small?" reader responses.

    No calls came from chefs, either, or from fellow food writers. They, too, know that when it comes to kitchens, size and equipment don’t count nearly as much as devotion, passion, common sense and, of course, experience. To pretend otherwise — to spend tens of thousands of dollars or more on a kitchen before learning how to cook, as is sadly common — is to fall into the same kind of silly consumerism that leads people to believe that an expensive gym membership will get them into shape or the right bed will improve their sex life. As runners run and writers write, cooks cook, under pretty much any circumstance.

    And I'll add to that, buying a $250.00 hockey stick for your beer league games.

    New York Times test kitchen, maybe? I'm kinda assuming they have one.
