Think Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, Mary Berry…these names are often found on the well-loved recipe books of many a passionate home cook. Whether your love is for baking the perfect Victoria sandwich, making homemade pasta or cooking a ham in cola, despite these recipe books having been through the cooking mill and likely splattered with ingredients of the recipe from previous cooks, they will undoubtedly get pulled out time and time again.
Today’s kitchens often have storage considered for the pots and pans, drawers for cutlery and baking supplies and cupboards to house the cereal and dry goods. What they often don’t have, is a place to hold the often-large number of recipe books that are required to create these tasty morsels. Books are one of those things that just don’t seem like they should be tucked away at the back of a regular kitchen cupboards or stowed away in drawers. We all need somewhere to store those precious books with ease of access. A place where they are visible, as well as adding colour to your kitchen. We believe such a place exists – welcome to the Kitchen Island Library.
