''Part cookbook, part lifestyle guide, this debut from blogger (yvestown.com) and photographer Eijkenduijn lets readers peek inside 13 private kitchens in Belgium and the Netherlands. Like Nathan Williams’s The Kinfolk Table, the book profiles many creative professionals and business owners. In each chapter, Eijkenduijn interviews her subjects about their favorite inspirations, ingredients, and kitchen secrets, and makes notes about their kitchen designs. She also includes two or three simple recipes, such as roasted fennel with croutons, pumpkin chickpea salad, chocolate cheesecake jars, and tropical pavlova. VERDICT: Foremost for readers looking for design ideas and visual inspiration, this distinct title features stunning photographs that recall Dwell magazine and DesignSponge.com. Both the kitchen designs and the recipes skew modern and minimal.''
