Home-Cooked Inspiration



Some of the finest examples of culinary creativity to be found in Nichols Hills – not food nor drink, but the expertly designed kitchens in which they are made – are on display this month, as the Oklahoma County Medical Alliance proudly announces the return of its Kitchen Tour on Sunday, October 21. Co-chaired by Amy Bankhead and Karen Gunderson, it’s an opportunity to explore and be inspired by six exquisite examples of the fusion of form and function, seasoned with luxury table settings and breathtaking floral designs, question-and-answer periods with certified kitchen designer Karen Black-Sigler, a coffee bar and bake sale and even live cooking demonstrations in each home, plus a special showcase at The Culinary Kitchen.

The not-for-profit OCMA is dedicated to helping the Oklahoma County Medical Society advance health education, promote relations among physicians’ families and encourage health-related volunteerism; president Kathy Bookman and president-elect Suzanne Reynolds were instrumental in reviving the Tour, which benefits the OK Kids Korral and YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter.

Tickets are available at each participating home for $20 on the day of the tour, or for $15 in advance at The Culinary Kitchen, A Karen Black Company, The Market at Quail Springs, New Leaf Florist, On A Whim, Pinkitzel and Whole Foods. Enjoy – inspiration is served.

The Place for Taste

While the perfect kitchen should be well-designed and pleasing to the eye, it should also be able to produce fare equally delightful to the palate, ideally without too much effort. That’s why one of the highlights of the 2012 Kitchen Tour is a trip to The Culinary Kitchen, where owner Claude Rappaport will demonstrate some top-of-the-line appliances… and what he can do with them.

The menu will highlight the capabilities of the blazing-fast TurboChef oven and Miele steam oven, as well as the multi-tiered, multi-functional, made-in-Tulsa Galley sink system – all additions that subtract from the time it takes to make a meal. “Between the TurboChef and the steam oven, you can cook a really great dinner in 30 minutes from the time you walk in the door,” enthuses Rappaport, adding “What good is fast if it’s not appetizing, you know? But when this comes out, it looks like it came out of a Bon Appetit cover!”

The store plans to play host to multiple chefs on the day of the tour, plus one: Rappaport considers himself a cook, not a chef, but he can’t resist the chance to put the equipment through its paces. And don’t worry about the feast merely being for the eyes; guests are encouraged to sample the results.
