cocina, noun:
kitchen; cooking

La cocina descends directly from the Latin word coquīna, meaning kitchen. That Latin word also gave rise to the Old English word for kitchen, cycene, fifteen hundred and more years ago.

Cocina refers both to the room in your house:

Tienen una cocina amueblada.
They have a fitted kitchen.

and to different types of cooking or cuisine:

La cocina mexicana me enloquece.
I’m crazy about Mexican food.
