Local Cider Bar owners needed help with their own antiquated kitchen in Berkeley. These eager cooks had no space to work. The kitchen created suits their style of cooking with spices arrayed on a shelf above the counter, and open shelves above. A wall of bookcases stores their extensive cookbook collection and a small island with a custom butcher block top provides prep space that was sorely lacking in their old kitchen. French doors to their gardens makes it easy to get outside and host outdoors.
