Ligne Déjà Kitchen

Clearly the future is upon us. And while that phrase might be so self-evident as to seem some kind of epistemological conundrum, I mean it in all sincerity. For I count among the harbingers of authentic hope for tomorrow 1. spray-on solar power (see EnSol), 2. remote power outlets (see eCoupled Wireless Technology), and 3. authentic innovation in the kitchen. This last point might seem odd given that my husband is our resident chef, but it derives from the contemporary kitchen’s status as a social hot spot. For as my Mom taught me and as her Mother taught her, the kitchen is the nexus of household life, whether you actually cook there or not.
