All food lovers will tell you that a well-equipped kitchen is essential. We’ve asked Aida Mollenkamp – author and founder of the food travel website Salt & Wind – to pick her five favourite onefinestay kitchens in London. From a cooking space with floor-to-ceiling windows to a marble topped breakfast bar, there’ll be something to suit every food lover’s palate.
Little Ferry Road
“Pretty much a dream kitchen, Little Ferry Road has it all: lots of space, airy light, and the equipment to support any serious cook. Whether you’re looking to cook teppanyaki or just a simple pasta, this space has you covered.”
Dulwich Road II
“This zen kitchen is the sort of space where you want to make a pot of tea and just sit there looking out at the garden. But when you want to cook like a boss it can still deliver with quality appliances.”
“This cosy kitchen is exactly what I’d want for a long weekend with my family. Somewhere where I can cook minimally — a simple breakfast of avocado and poached eggs on toast before heading out and about, or shake up a few gin and tonics in the evening.”
Regent’s Park Road VI
“Just a hop, skip, and jump north of the city, this gem of a home on the cobblestoned Regent’s Park Road has me totally swooning. And this kitchen is industrial chic at its best – big enough to whip up a feast for friends, but still intimate enough for a late-night snack.”
Redcliffe Road III
“Redcliffe Road III is a balance of refinement and boldness. Neutral colours and five-storeys tall, this masterpiece of a home has a modern marble-and-wood-clad kitchen that gives a feeling of sophistication – even if all I’m making is a simple cup of tea.”
