Do You Enjoy Cooking in Other People's Kitchens?

Do You Enjoy Cooking in Other People's Kitchens?

Although it can be tough not knowing where the whisk or baking sheets are, I often find myself making meals in a kitchen that's not my own. I don't mind cooking in an unfamiliar kitchen; I look at it as a challenging adventure and even enjoy wearing the vintage apron that came along with the kitchen! How about you?

No, except at my Parents. The Kitchen is huge, my Mom has pretty much all the same gadgets/appliances I do and I grew up there so I know where everything is.

If I know the person well and they cook often themselves then I have love to cook with them in their kitchen. My issue is cooking in a kitchen that rarely sees action, it is awkward at that time.

Oh no! I'm still a beginner so I'd be too scared to burn the place down or (heaven forbid) make a mess in their kitchen. :o

I like cooking at my mom's because she has a bigger kitchen than I do and I know where everything is. Otherwise, I prefer to cook in my own kitchen. If I had access to a huge, nice kitchen, I'd definitely cook there!

Most of the time, yes. People's kitchens tend to be way bigger than mine.

While I prefer to cook in my own, I do like to cook and bake in my daughter's kitchen. Really looking forward to preparing Thanksgiving dinner there this year.

Cute picture! :) I reeeally need an apron like that. I don't cook in other people's kitchens too often.

If I'm cooking by myself in there while they watch, then nope. I find it very uncomfortable not knowing where everything is, just feeling lost and using tools not my own. For some reason its like a domain thing to me. My aunt in Hungary would never allow us in her kitchen to cook for ourselves or for the family. She always had to be the one cooking, but she would allow us to help and I feel the same way.
