Recessed lighting for kitchen makeover?

I'm planning a complete re-do of my 10 X 10 kitchen. A few people who've come in to take a look and make recommendations have talked up recessed lighting.

I'm a little leery. For one thing, it seems like this might be more about what's fashionable than what's very functional. I really lean to task lighting, such as track lighting, with the lights directed to the areas that need it (fridge, work area, pantry).

My base cabinets are all drawers, so I'm not too concerned about adequate lighting for things like a pantry.

What has your experience been with changing the lighting in your kitchen makeover? Do you think recessed lighting would be adequate? Etc etc. Thanks.
