The Royal Kitchens at Kew

The parterre at The Georgian Kitchen, Kew, very atmospheric at dusk

Wasn’t I lucky to win the golden ticket to go along with a friend to see The Royal Kitchens at Kew. Was great to get an idea of all the culinary and preserving tasks that went on in this building, giving a glimpse of how labour intensive preparing food was when everything was prepared from scratch. We were also shown around Kew Palace, quite modest, considering it was a palace for George III. Of course the room that pressed my buttons was the room of five senses, apparently a common theme in the eighteenth century, something I am now on a mission to find out more about.
