    This is nuts!!!! I LOVE this kitchen, it is a tool shed for cooks. I need to see everything as well and there is a fine line between seeing everything and a complete mess. Michael has achieved a wonderful balance of function and aesthetically pleasing. Wonderful interview ๐Ÿ™‚

    this is the only irregularly shaped island that i’ve ever fallen in love with. Perfection!

  11. Blue Tang on December 2, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    It reminds me of 80’s "country" style kitchens. Just needs some wicker baskets hanging from the ceiling.

  12. 21whichiswhich on December 2, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Wow! This is my dream kitchen. It feels like really home and so true the kitchen is the heart of a home.

  13. B K on December 2, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Where the hell did you get that fridge? My husband and I have been looking everywhere for one just like it, but canโ€™t find one anywhere!!!

  16. Brenda Echols on December 2, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Love the clock idea. The blue pantry.

  17. Drake Drones on December 2, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    He is a total package – handsome, well spoken, interesting career and interests!!!!!

  18. Ace on December 2, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    It’s been a while since I seen this Chef and didn’t know he had a new family,..no Rachel, he mentioned Gabe so he must get together..ah ! but the kitchen is very nice

  19. John Michaud on December 2, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Beautiful kitchen. One of my favorite chefs, and enjoy watching your stuff. Thank you.

  20. Angel C on December 2, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    You are one of my favorites Chef’s, your cool calm teaching demeanor is addicting… Also the fact that you break the rules and wing the recipes is unusually unique in a famous chef… Wish you had more videos or episodes accessible on Youtube as Chef at home and Chef at Large are incredible but hard to find…
    Excellent kitchen the knife display, cooling rack and spice library are beyond, as a matter of fact I will be creating my own spice library in the near future…

  21. djjones141 on December 2, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Good god, I need the design notes and floor plan for this. Seriously amazing.

  22. MT MF on December 2, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    This is a dream kitchen. I especially love the stainless steel sink/drainer/dishwasher area – so well-thought out, clean and super efficient.

  23. simplebeautyworld on December 2, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    i like the cooling rack idea

  24. D Ishappywithlife on December 2, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    He reminds me of John Corbett during his acting days on โ€œNorthern Exposure.โ€ He definitely has a hippy cool vibe going

  25. Pat Cerulean on December 2, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    love this guy, marry me!

  26. Belinda Kaysac on December 2, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    How many kitchens does Michael have?

  27. iceplantAI on December 2, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    our house burned in the December fire in California so i am studying kitchens and this one is fabulous…i loved the cooling racks and the clocks (really fun).

  28. robiahq on December 2, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    I have always wondered what Chef Michael’s kitchen looked like. It’s on TV! Love it.

  29. De Anna on December 2, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    My favorite chef! Hes just such a genuine guy and the best chef!

  30. ed on December 2, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Have the designers ever worked in hospitality, because I feel they really understood their client. Looks like a fabulous representation of all the busy kitchens I’ve seen (and I’ve been in hospitality a long time ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜) . Really enjoyed this. ๐Ÿ˜€

  31. Angela Berni on December 2, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    I have been looking at kitchen videos and photo’s for years and years and this is the very first kitchen that actually MAKES SENSE !!! Why ? Because he actually bloody well cooks !!! All the rest are soulless show pieces fit only for offering cheese and biscuits!! Thank you kind sir for restoring my faith that a kitchen can actually function as it was intended to !! I’m gathering ideas and have been for years,as very soon I’ll be extending my home and re positioning my kitchen. Thank you,thank you,thank you !!!

    He briefly showed drawers with containers in them. What are those contaniners called and where does one buy them? I would use for flour, sugar etc.

  48. hamed manoochehri on December 2, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    It’s Ramadan here in Iran and this kitchen is tempting me to break my fast. this kitchen deserves to be bombed. Allaho Akbar…

  49. Just Just on December 2, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Love how even a master chef has a homey real kitchen.

  50. DSherman50 on December 2, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    The most interesting, original kitchen Iโ€™ve ever seen in my entire life. I could spend days, perhaps weeks, in there while he cooks just getting to know more about this kitchen.
