A cool day and a chilly night on tap comprise a harbinger of the slow passing of summer. This elemental kitchen, by Finnish designer Jaani Vaahtera, speaks to me of leafless trees powdered with frost. But I'm getting ahead of things, here, aren't I? We've got a few more weeks of barbecue-friendly weather ahead, and I intend to savor this time, shorter days and all.
