Hear about historic preservationist John Ota's journey documented as documented in his new book "The Kitchen."
On a mission to design the perfect kitchen of his own, Canadian architect, author and historic preservationist John Ota visited—and cooked in—the kitchens of Louis Armstrong, Thomas Jefferson, Georgia O’Keeffe and other famous figures, as well as the more humble abodes of pilgrims and turn-of-the-last-century tenement families.
Join Ota as he revisits his quest to uncover great historic kitchens through his visits to the homes of Thomas Jefferson, Louis Armstrong, Julia Child, Georgia O'Keeffe, Elvis Presley and others. Along the way, he discovered the origins and evolution of the kitchen, its architecture and its appliances.
