about this item

Pennell contends that many characteristics of the English kitchen of the modern era (circa 1850 and after) were forged and developed across the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. She examines consumption, domesticity, and the emergence of the kitchen as a separate sphere. She ties the chronology of the book specifically to the emergence of the space as a distinct architectural feature in now-elite houses (having scarcely existed as a separate, physically demarcated domestic space before 1600, with its own specific equipment).
