Home & Garden: The heart of the home

by: Rachel S. OHara Staff Photographer

The Sarasota Orchestra Association will present its first Symphony of Kitchens, a two-day tour of eight kitchens in the Sarasota area. The kitchens will be open for visitors to tour Feb. 15 and Feb. 16, and will feature local celebrity chefs whipping up goodies for guests (visit for times).

The SOA has held home tours over the past 38 years, however this is the first time that it has focused on just the kitchens. Showcasing area kitchens seemed like a natural choice because they are truly the heart of the home.

Proceeds of the Symphony of Kitchens will benefit the Sarasota Orchestra and its Youth Orchestra program.

Diversions showcases four of the eight kitchens featured on the Symphony of Kitchens tour.
