Life happens in the kitchen. That’s what independent producer Jane Owen is discovering through working with WNIN on a program called “Evansville’s Great Kitchens,” which features kitchens from around the Tri-State, including Evansville, Jasper, Ind., and Henderson and Owensboro, Ky. The program is slated to premiere in June.
“Eating is something we need to do everyday,” says Owen. “Our culture has embraced making it more than just a necessity and more of a daily celebration.”
One of Owen’s first visits was to Sherry and Kirk Wright’s home Casa Finale on Riverside Drive in Downtown Evansville. Casa Finale’s three kitchens will be explored on the program and the entire home will be featured in the May/June issue of Evansville Living. Other homes from the show will also be featured in future issues.
The Wrights named their home Casa Finale, which is rooted in Italian décor and construction, to represent the promise they made to each other that this would be the last home they would own or ever want after the extensive restoration of the downtown landmark.
Owen met with Sherry Wright to talk about her three kitchens, which she actively uses everyday to cook with her family and entertain friends.
“The kitchen is the social hub for most people,” says Brad Kimmel, president and CEO at WNIN. “We are excited to show off the large, unique, or unusual kitchens in our area, just like the shows on HGTV do on the national level.”
