Reviews

"In The Kitchen, John Ota celebrates the room that is the heart of every home. As a designer dedicated to minimalism, Ota's journey challenges him to rethink what's important. From the warm memories of his mother's lovingly chaotic cooking space to the premeditated clutter of Julia Child's iconic kitchen, he digs deep to explore how our idea of the room has evolved; what it has been and what it will become. Impeccably researched and beautifully written, there is no other book I know of that is quite like it." Bonnie Stern
