21st Century Kitchen Awash in Natural Light

UUC kitchen under renovation

Our church kitchen has been relocated from the west side of Nathan Johnson Hall to the east side.  This provides us with two advantages.  It creates a larger mingling area in our fellowship hall and incorporates a large bank of east-facing windows that flood the kitchen with natural light. The wall between the kitchen and NJ Hall features a pass-through counter with large pocket doors that can be left open for serving or closed for noise-suppression.  Inside the kitchen, this wall also provides a dedicated station for the Coffee Crew.  Our new coffee makers are plumbed to the water supply and drip directly into air pots that can be carried to the serving area.  An under-counter refrigerator stores coffee supplies and a nearby cart makes moving the supplies in and out of the social hall easy.  The kitchen has a center island with storage and under-counter freezer and ice maker.  Those using the kitchen will appreciate our new commercial dishwasher with counter-top racks that slide in and out, a 6-burner gas cooktop, a convection oven and a full-sized refrigerator.  The kitchen is stocked with plates and bowls for 100, and plenty of coffee cups for Sunday morning.
