a kitchen from the past
Some time ago, I posted an article on servants in olden days. To make it more realistic and also show our modern youth what it was like in the old days, I went to a museum for the photo shoot.
The servants (past and present) in wealthy households worked very long days, with little or no time off, and received very little salary.
If there were many family members in the household, the cook was usually kept very busy in the kitchen. With no modern equipment or electrical appliances to help her, meal times took long hours to prepare. Ingredients had to be cleaned and cut. Sauces were made from scratch. With no freezers, some meats had to be preserved and properly stored.
There would be other servants who did the cleaning and the washing.
By the time they sat down for their dinner, they would be dead tired and left with scraps from the masters' table. :(
I have been watching too many TV dramas, I think I posed with all the coolness of an old hand. hahaha....
I had lots of fun when I first started blogging. Now with a job, there is hardly time for outdoor photography. *pouts*
