HASH(0x920afeb8) out of 5 stars Great kitchen wish book! 16 Aug. 1999
By P. Logan - Published on
Format: Paperback
The photography in this magazine-sized paperback is "yummy" It is very easy to see onesself sitting at any of the kitchens photographed, reading a great book, with a warm fire in the hearth. You can dream through such styles of kitchens as: American, French, Spanish, Italian, or English. There are specific chapter devoted to the hearth, ranges and stoves, sinks and drainers, tables and chairs, as well as storage. If that weren't enough, the back of the book offers soup, spreads, stews, rice, pasta, etc. recipes!! And if you want your food in your dream kitchen to be healthy, the last section is about the kitchen garden. What more could one ask except that this book be longer with MORE photos!

HASH(0x926a28d0) out of 5 stars A beautiful book 7 Dec. 1999
By Sonia Simone-Rossney - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most beautiful books I own. Not cutesy-country, but warm, genuine, earthy places where you'd love to spend time. I reread this about twice a year.

HASH(0x92499c3c) out of 5 stars Country Kitchens from the 1990s---mostly.... 22 July 2007
By Angie2 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book in the early 1990's, therefore, I'm almost sure that the copyright on this book (ie: 2007) is for the "reprint" of this original 1990's book.

Still, in the 1990's this book was ahead of it's time, so if you are interested in a nice picture book of beautiful country kitchens, this is a nice book for your library. In my opinion, this is not really a "how to" kitchen remodeling book, but rather, a book with wonderfully photographed ideas for your country-style kitchen. The ideas are classic and hold up well , even in 2007.

HASH(0x920af594) out of 5 stars FABULOUS! 23 Feb. 2006
By Margot Bernier - Published on
Format: Paperback
Fabulous is the word! I think I look at this book at least 10 times, and everytime brought me something I didn't see the previous times, because my eyes weren't wide enough to see all the details! If you loved, I mean really love country, you will love this book. It will become a good reference for good ideas for your kitchen.

I think it is one of my favorite book in my whole collection of books! Give me some more like this one and I will surely buy them!

HASH(0x922299b4) out of 5 stars Loved it so much, buying 2nd copy in hardcover!!!! 5 Jun. 2013
By Vic - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this wonderful book around 2006 from Amazon in paperback and I have read it numerous times, so much so that the binding has come apart. It just occurred to me to look for it in hardcover; I was thrilled to find it and ordered it immediately. I googled Jocasta Innes and sadly learned that she passed in April 2013 after a long creative life, so I am writing this long overdue review recognizing how much her book, "Country Kitchens" has and continues to inspire me. After moving into my 113 year old Victorian row house, I wanted to re-do my kitchen, but I knew I did not want anything too modern, but rather something compatible with the age and decor of the rest of my house. Thankfully I found Jocasta's book and after spending many hours viewing her beautiful, dreamy images, I was inspired to re-imagine my kitchen as it might have been ideally designed in the 1920s, as an in-town version of a country kitchen. "Country Kitchens" inspired me to forego slick, pricey appliances, and cookie cutter cabinets, saving myself a fortune. In the process I created a warm, comfortable, artistic and unique kitchen where I happily spend most of my at-home time. My kitchen never fails to amaze first time visitors and elicit compliments. As an added bonus, in the near future I plan to try some of her yummy recipes that are included in the book. I thank Jocasta's wonderful book for giving me the inspiration and courage to realize my own dream country kitchen, and I highly highly recommend this book to anyone interested in rustic or country kitchens. My only regret is that we cannot look forward to more wonderful books by this inspiring woman.
