Steal This Look: Romantic Outdoor Kitchen in Puglia

Issue 6 · Love Is a Rose · February 11, 2014

In keeping with our Valentine's theme this week, we've stumbled upon this utilitarian yet romantic outdoor kitchen in Puglia, a renovation project of Elia Mangia Design Studio. Cooking (and eating) here is somehow more appealing than cuddling by a fire.

We've sourced the elements to recreate the look:

Mediterranean Utilitarian Outdoor Kitchen in Puglia, Gardenista

Above: The outdoor kitchen is sited in a renovated trullo, a style of stone hut native to the region.

Above: The ingredients are truly simple, but admittedly the white Mediterranean walls add a certain charm. 

Nexgrill Tabletop Grill, Gardenista

Above: A tabletop stove is the easiest outdoor cooking solution. A Nexgrill 2-Burner Table Top Gas Grill is $129 at Walmart.

Black Plastic Utility Tub, Gardenista

Above: We like the utility tub used as an outdoor sink; a Black Plastic Utility Tub is $18.39 from Midland Hardware.

Orange Outdoor Extension Cord, Gardenista

Above: In the right setting, even a plain orange extension cord looks like a design element. A 25-Foot Outdoor Extension Cord is $9.99 on Amazon.

Bayco Fluorescent Utility Light, Gardenista

Above: In case the string lights hanging from the olive trees fail to provide enough light, a Bayco 18W Fluorescent Work Light is $19.97 at Walmart.

Bialetti Stovetop Espresso Maker, Gardenista

Above: Ubiquitous in Italian kitchens, indoors and out: the Bialetti stovetop espresso maker. A 3-cup Bialetti Moka Express is $24.62 on Amazon.

Vintage French Style Cutting Board, Gardenista

Above: Any cutting board will do, but several vintage French boards are available on Etsy. This French Style Chopping Board is $56.04. 

Black Wok with Wood Handles, Gardenista

Above: A Wood-Handled Wok is $9.38 from KitchenInspire.
