Alison Kent Home Kitchen

Vancouver

With a background in Architecture/Interiors, art and design, and obsessive passions in cooking/entertaining (making and sharing the food), gardening (growing the food), antiquing (dishes to hold the food), product design (including making objects that hold the food) and travel (to eat more of the food LOL) it struck me – the Home Kitchen. That’s my jam. OH – and JAM! I do also sometimes make jam…
