When world-renowned chef Daniel Boulud was planning his dream kitchen for his New York City apartment, he wanted the space to feel anything but "professional." But as we see in the May issue of Elle Decor, even without a full staff and industrial appliances, the cookery still has everything a culinary expert would need.
Boulud worked with architect Stephanie Goto, who designed famous restaurants such as Morimoto and Monkey Bar, to create the modern and efficient space. With sleek cooking equipment such as a high-end oven with a plate warming drawer, a triple-bowl sink by Dada and a seriously impressive collection of cutlery, Boulud's guests must get a Zagat-approved meal every time they visit.
Scroll through the photos below to see Boulud's impressive space. And be sure to head over to Elle Decor for more information. Don't forget to pick up your copy of the May issue on sale now.
