Galley - Finally Done!

Here is the grand unveiling of my new galley.  Many of you will know how much I enjoy cooking and I especially enjoy cooking for friends and family.  Now I can entertain more and the beauty of having the table in the kitchen, is that I don't miss out on the fun whilst serving up.  I don't do 'formal' entertaining, if you come to me you just get stuck in and help yourself, no standing on ceremony here!  Don't forget to drop in if you are in the vicinity, you will be more than welcome xxx

Oh I say that is an excellent looking galley, I envy you the big cooker but what especially caught my eye is the table cloth and fruit bowl.
So will we be having a rhubarb pie for dessert ?

Fran, I love absolutely everything about your galley. This is a place where friends become family, all gathered around the table together. If I could afford a plane ticket I would take you up on your invitation in a heart beat. Oh, you are going to have so much fun cooking there and sharing food and laughter with family and friends. I am so happy for you, it is a beautiful space :)

It looks wonderful! And I can hear a drum roll as the new galley is unveiled! I might just take you up on that offer, Fran. It would be lovely to see it all 'in the flesh'.

Is that your special stove that you wrote about quite a few years ago. It was very intriguing to me that it could provide heat in addition to cooking. We tried a woodstove thermo-electric generator. Good in concept, but didn't provide as much power as we had hoped. - Margy

How lovely! I have been enjoying all the photos along the way and it looks superb now. If Pete needs another project to get his teeth into then I could find him one here : )
