The Kitchen is generally where we spend our most memorable time with our family. It is a place where we cook and share meals. Cooking itself is not only about nourishment, but also about giving of oneself. It is not surprising, then, that kitchens are becoming more and more the epicenter of family life, and that ‘open kitchens’ and ‘great rooms’ are now the focus of many homes. Michael felt that pieces which are generally left out on kitchen table and counter tops should be as decorative as they are highly functional. The Pomegranate Kitchen Collection is based on one of Michael’s most beloved themes.
“I grew up around pomegranates – from their use as natural dyes on the antique rugs I used to crawl on as a baby to an integral ingredient in the food that I love. When I’m at my home in New Delhi, I wake each morning to the taste of fresh squeezed pomegranate juice. The color, the smell, the delicate flavor all make it feel like a magical elixir to me.”
