Food52's Editorial Assistant (and college student) Brette Warshaw is curating her very own first kitchen -- and she needs your help. Today: where we stand.
And, since May, we've been building a kitchen together.
It certainly won't look like this -- that will come later. But thanks to your expertise, I've been piecing together a kitchen -- a lifestyle, really -- that will serve me in some of the most novel, the most exciting, and the most important years of my life.
Here's where we stand. What else do I need? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
