Felbrigg House - Inside - (Part 2) 4/7

The kitchen you currently at Felbrigg Hall has been in the same spot since the early 18th century. There are two long oak tables, one of which is 18th century, the other Victorian. The pewter and highly polished copper batterie de cuisine are typical of historic country house kitchens, and are all an original collection left at Felbrigg.

I always feel the downstairs to be every bit as interesting as upstairs
Brian Walbey: I'll bet when the families lived in these big houses some of them never set foot downstairs.

They painted the wall to match the pots and pans.
Brian Walbey: That was my thought when we walked in the kitchen.
Impressive to look at but I sure would not want to work keeping it that way.
Brian Walbey: It would have been hard work in the old days, now I guess the National Trust give it all a really good clean during the closed season in the winter.
I always like to see the kitchens in these places Brian

I love copper and Brass
Brian Walbey: This one is quite intersting, all that brassware and china is very impressive.
all very neatly arranged and not too cramped for space, Brian. my mother would be overjoyed.
Brian Walbey: You'll have to show your mother this picture on your phone Ayush, it might make her day to sit it.
what!?! no microwave oven!?!?! so primitive :-P
Brian Walbey: What would we do without microwaves I often wonder.

I saw some of those very well equipped kitchens in the historic country houses - in the cellar floor ...
Brian Walbey: Yes most of the big houses have kitchens like this.

My great-grandmother, born 1843, was cook to the Rothschilds. She would have worked in a kitchen like this
Brian Walbey: The didn't have all the cooking aids we have these days but I bet the food was just as good. My mother worked in service when she left school in about 1923 both in Cambridge and London and was taught to cook by a very capable person apparently, all I can say is my Mum was a great cook herself after all that tuition.
i love this kitchen with all of the copper pots... pans and other fancy copper things on the shelves Brian...

drop in tomorrow to see how they were made....petersmile
Brian Walbey: No doubt every big house had sets of utensils like these.
That's a lovely lot of copper!
Brian Walbey: I would hate to have to give that lot their annual clean.
