Kitchen Yearbook Issue 19

Kitchens have become one of the most important features of the home. Built for more than just cooking, kitchens are where we help kids with homework, sit and chat with friends over a coffee, watch a weather report or attempt to replicate favourite cooking show recipes, hence the need for the best appliances and accessories. Kitchen Yearbook provides the latest product news, trends and innovations currently on the market, with projects, products and showrooms featured in the magazine inspiring readers to consider renovating their existing kitchens. Plus there is the usual expert advice, cookbook reviews, and gossip from the interior design world.
