Excerpts

Excerpts

History of the Modern Kitchen The history of kitchens is in many ways the history of women. Since colonial times, the kitchen has been primarily the domain of women, either the woman of the house or female servants. The few men who cooked were chefs in restaurants. Well into the twentieth century, women had very little input into the design of the room where they spent most of their time and labor, and servants had no say at all.
