    Laurie Colwin’s Recipe for Being Yourself in the Kitchen

    In “Home Cooking,” a collection of essays first published in 1988, Laurie Colwin states one opinion after another, as plainly as boiled potatoes. “Grilling is like sunbathing,” she announces. “Everyone knows it is bad for you but no one ever stops doing it.” Along with outdoor cooking, outdoor dining is out, too: “I do not like to eat al fresco. No sane person does, I feel.” During Colwin’s brief career, and then well beyond it, countless readers and cooks have aspired to her idiosyncratic recipe for sanity and self-reliance. Its ingredients were laid out primarily in her columns for Gourmet (which “Home Cooking” collects), and, if Colwin’s opinions were bluntly…

    Designing An Outdoor Kitchen – Garden Kitchen

    Summer may have faded into glorious autumn but create an outdoor kitchen and you can carry on cooking and dining alfresco the whole year round. An outdoor kitchen can be as simple as a BBQ with surrounding units for easy food prep, to a full-scale set-up with a sink, tap, refrigerator and multiple cooking appliances. The joy of a garden kitchen is that you can customise it entirely to your needs, without the worry of designing a ‘normal’ kitchen, such as fitting everything into a limited space with awkward walls. ‘Twenty years ago, people bought a £100 B&Q barbecue and that was the extent of their outdoor entertaining,’ says Ross…

    Real estate ‘unicorn’ Orchard Technologies moving downtown

    Orchard Technologies, a newly minted “unicorn”  that aims to simplify the home-selling-and-buying process, had its own odyssey finding a new home for its fast-growing business. The outcome: a welcome, 107,000 square-foot boost for the downtown office market. The four-year-old firm was working out of a 25,000-square-foot Knotel flex-space until Knotel went bankrupt early this year. Orchard relocated temporarily to a WeWork location on West 14th Street, but needed much more elbow room for its growing staff. Now, it’s signed a lease on three floors at L&L Holding Company’s 195 Broadway, the landmarked “wedding-cake” tower between Fulton and Dey streets. Ironically, part of Orchard’s new space was originally built out for Knotel, which…
