These days rarely do people have one permanent job description. Actors are singers, singers are clothing designers, and fashion designers are kitchen architects? We all know that Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein have been creating elegant and chic accessories for the home for ages now, but did you know that Giorgio Armani (besides having a specialty cocktail) has designed a kitchen for an entire set of apartment buildings in New York City? Located at 20 Pine, the exclusive apartments are interior designed and decorated entirely by Armani. The kitchen is camouflaged with all of the cabinets and appliances sleekly concealed behind wooden cabinetry. While I enjoy the kitchens stark modernity, I worry about its functionality. There is very little counter space. I don't know if I would want to have Armani's kitchen in my home. What do you guys think, Armani kitchen: love it or hate it?

Unfortunately I don't have my dad's recipe on me, I'll have to call him up and get it next time I'm there. However I've found one for you that sounds just as good.
