Guest Host: Jennice Fuentes

In many homes, the kitchen is more than just a place to cook. It’s a dining room, a study, an office and a den, all in one room — a place that brings a family together. But this wasn’t always so. In the early 20th century, most kitchens were messy, hot places that were hidden from the rest of the house. We explore how the kitchen evolved, and why it’s become the hub of so many American homes.
