Hey, epicurious.com.
00:12
I'm Rebecca Minkoff and you're in my kitchen.
00:14
(upbeat music)
00:17
My most favorite thing in the kitchen is my Le Creuset.
00:20
My mom gives me about one piece every year
00:22
and I like it in all different colors.
00:23
So, I have a big cooking pot, I have this pan,
00:27
and a tea pot. My husband would prefer electric,
00:30
but I don't want to get rid of the color
00:32
so I make him keep this one around.
00:34
They made this oven clearly for a tall person.
00:37
So being 5'9, sometimes I have to bend over
00:39
but with this stove I don't have to bend over at all.
00:42
I love to shop for kitchen stuff.
00:43
I don't have any more space left.
00:44
So, I want to have five different sets of fun dishes
00:47
but today I have to settle for
00:49
a hodgepodge of different things that I like.
00:51
So, this is my fridge. This is Luca's first piece of art.
00:55
Which, now I know why parents are always showing off
00:58
their kids' art, 'cause I'm so proud.
01:01
This was the birthday party he was just invited to
01:03
and we felt very popular and he got so excited, he ate it.
01:08
So this is my fridge.
01:10
You've got some pureed carrots and apples. Yummy for baby.
01:14
The secret to breast feeding, I have tons of this oil
01:19
and it's really healthy for him too.
01:24
So, another thing I love about my kitchen
01:25
is this really long island.
01:27
It has great storage, it has buffet seats.
01:30
So, often times we'll do all of our entertaining here
01:32
and have our friends sit there
01:34
and we kind of are in the back
01:36
and I'm cooking and serving.
01:37
These stools kind of remind me of
01:39
old-fashioned ice cream parlor stools.
01:40
And, one day I'm gonna recover them
01:42
with leather from may handbags,
01:44
but I haven't had the time to do it yet.
01:46
That's my kitchen epicurious.com.
01:47
Thanks for coming.
01:49
I'd love to stay but I gotta feed the baby.
