Come behind the scenes at Rough Measures for a #KitchenTour and see Sus' kitchen on a narrowboat in Bath, England.

I love my sink!

Tell us about your kitchen?

My kitchen is tiny. 6 foot wide and about 8 foot long at best. We live on a narrowboat, so every nook and cranny needs to be working to maximise space. We can't cook together due to the space issue, so there is only ever one of us in the space at a time, but it works and we love it.

What have you done to make your kitchen cosy, functional, beautiful or inspiring?

We haven't done much since we moved on. One worktop also doubles as our dining table, we have a huge spice rack on the wall, and try to maximise cupboard space.

How do you keep organized while cooking?

I don't! The kitchen gets messy really quickly, it is small and often looks like a disaster zone. We have to keep our water usage to a minimum so only wash up once a day, so often the sink is stacked with items!

Any tips & tricks for organising your pantry, fridge and ingredients?

I add everything into a jar. It stores ingredients better and also means I can find things easier in the cupboards.

Do you do a lot of cooking and what are your favourite dishes to make?

I cook every day. My food blog means I am always testing recipes and trying out new dishes, but I also love to cook for fun. One of my favourite dishes to make is Celeriac Steaks, which is a recipe from Anna Jones new book - A Modern Way to Cook.

Where do you turn for new recipe ideas?

Food blogs, my array of veggie recipe books and my head!

Do you plan out your recipes for the week or do you like to be spontaneous?

I try to plan them out as much as possible. It keeps the food bills down and means we just do one shop a week.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make this your dream kitchen?

A fridge that works (with a freezer!) A real size oven (we only have a very small one) More worktop space.
