CAC Live: “The Kitchen” Book Talk
May 27 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm| $8,
Join Canadian architect John Ota as he revisits his quest to uncover great historic kitchens of North America in his new book, The Kitchen: A journey through time—and the homes of Julia Child, Georgia O’Keeffe, Elvis Presley and many others—in search of the perfect design. On a mission to design a perfect kitchen of his own, Ota visited—and cooked in—the kitchens of Louis Armstrong, Thomas Jefferson, Georgia O’Keeffe, and other famous figures, as well as the more humble abodes of pilgrims and turn-of-the-last-century tenement families. Along the way, Ota discovered the origins and evolution of the kitchen, its architecture, and its appliances.
