What makes your kitchen wonderful?

THINK ABOUT YOUR KITCHEN...

The hub of the home. What makes it wonderful?

Each month we will be featuring a different personality from various professions who will each give us an insight into their wonderful kitchen.

During March we featured Kate Richardson-Walsh, gold medal winning Olympian, in April Mark Wilkinson, and in May Sherrie Hewson, Actress, Presenter and TV Personality and Michael Lammel, Co-founder of NOA Design. Now it's the turn of Jim Buttress, Holder of the RHS Victorian Medal of Honour. RHS judge, horticulturist, TV and radio presenter.

Keep checking back each month for the next personality!


Jim Buttress

My Wonderful Kitchen

“My kitchen is where all my fresh home grown vegetables and herbs come together to make deliciously healthy dishes.”

I’ve been involved in horticulture for over 60 years, both growing and judging plants and vegetables. Growing and encouraging people to grow has been my passion in life. At the end of the cultivation process what more could you want for than naturally grown, freshly picked herbs and vegetables prepared and cooked in your own kitchen. My kitchen is so important to me; it’s the final stage where all that horticultural effort cumulates in satisfyingly, delicious, healthy food.

Sherrie Hewson

My Wonderful Kitchen

“All is right with the world when I am in my kitchen, the fire is lit and I am cuddled up on my sofa with my dog Peggy”

My kitchen is a living room where people cook. It has deep comfortable sofas, a large table and a log burning fire. The glass double doors look on to rolling fields with cows, sheep and an array of other wildlife.

Why would I want to watch TV when I have this amazing view right outside my window? All is right with the world when I am in my kitchen, the fire is lit and I am cuddled up on my sofa with my dog Peggy, a cup of tea and a chocolate Hobnob.”

Michael Lammel

My Wonderful Kitchen

“My kitchen is like a stage for my personal play, it’s the place where things happen.”

Preparing delicious and healthy food, chatting with family and friends whilst enjoying a glass of wine, or even a place to create inspiring new ideas for my work while having an espresso.

My kitchen is a transforming space which acts and reacts perfectly to my needs. One moment I feel like the chef in a trendy cooking show, the next I imagine I am in my design studio.

Kate Richardson-Walsh

My Wonderful Kitchen

“The perfect environment for family, friends, love, laughter and, of course, great food.” 

To visit my kitchen is to fall in love with it. Challenged by a low beamed ceiling I chose to eschew wall units in favour of a fully shelved walk-in larder/pan store, allowing me to clothe the walls in art, thus complementing the wonderful craftsmanship of the kitchen’s wooden construction. Now, when allied with the wafting aromas of baking from my daughter’s, my wife Cynthia’s and my own culinary potterings, it all adds up to make the perfect environment for family, friends, love, laughter and, of course, great food.

Nadia Damaso

My Wonderful Kitchen

“I couldn’t imagine a better place than my kitchen!
I’m absolutely in love with every single corner of it!”

As soon as I enter my kitchen, I feel like I’m in a world full of new tastes, colours, spices and textures. The ideas for new creations are just sparkling around and fill the kitchen with warmth, love & excitement to get cooking and try out something new. That’s only possible with a great kitchen that gives you space, has a lot of daylight and lets your imagination run wild.
