The busiest place the house I grew up in was always the kitchen. My mother is an amazing cook and I always spent a lot of time trying to learn and help. Today's word is кухня, kitchen.


Whenever we had gatherings,

Мама звала меня на кухню помочь.
Mom would call me into the kitchen to help.

My father also liked to take his turn at cooking.

Где папа? Он на кухне.
Where is dad? He is in the kitchen.

And now that I have my own house,

Самая большая комната в моём доме — кухня.
The biggest room in my house is the kitchen.

Which is exciting because I get to design it any way I want.
However, it is also overwhelming.

Существует огромное количество вариантов оформления кухонь!
There are a huge number of options for designing kitchens!

Thanks for the suggestion and compliment, I may end up doing another entry using the “cuisine” meaning. I do try to stick to one meaning per entry.

I am sure you are probably aware of this online resource for common Russian words. But in case you missed it, here’s a useful site. I’ve given the link to the words relating to kitchens.


I continue to enjoy your entries - always an interesting variety. Many thanks!

I agree with Andrey. I think it’s worth writing about that meaning.

This word has another meaning: cuisine/food. For example, Russian food will be русская кухня.
