The Summer Kitchen
If you can't stand the heat...
Throughout the 18th and 19th century, many houses employed what is known as a "summer kitchen." This was a smaller building adjacent to the house with a high pitched roof to use in the summer as the kitchen. It was a way to keep the heat out of the house (long before air-conditioning) during those hot summer months.
This is a collection of our antique kitchenwares and kitchen furniture inspired by the summer kitchens of past.
