The Prince and the Pauper


What's in this issue?

The Very Kitchen of the King Himself the Decorating article

Some of the friendliest kitchens freely mix the regal with the routine, the palatial with the prosaic—and there are also specialty spaces and organizational ideas that can help to create a dream kitchen simply by taking a good hard look at what's available, then gathering supplies and declaring some underused or ineffective footage as property of the crown.  Here we review some easy to formulate stations that might fit into any number of kitchen layouts, regardless of size or style; and provide a basic, a substantial and a luxury list of the supplies needed at each station.



The Likeness Himself the Hearth article

Elspeth shares her own means for the tricky business of capturing anyone's likeness, based on the techniques and methods of Holbein and Scrots.  Headings include: Subject Selection, The Sketch Study, and The Cartoon.



The Very Kitchen of the King Himself the Kitchen article

Those who enjoy creating meals as much as devouring them, would be quite happy to spend many hours working the beauty and utility of spaces that thoughtfully accommodate the wide range of labors and the profusion of tools that the kitchen at Hampton Court Palace enjoyed.  Recipes presented recall the Hampton Court kitchen workrooms where they would have been prepared: Spicery, Great Kitchen, Boiling House, Confectionery, Pastry Workhouse, and Bake House.



Of Roses Red and White the Garden article

Whether a disconsolate Henry VII actually requested that his wife's likeness be used as the queen of hearts in imitation of the French custom of royal face cards or whether the story is simply part of a Tudor tall tale, there is another indisputable device forever associated with Elizabeth of York—the Tudor rose.



The Search for Survivors the Writer's Garret article

Seymore finds himself in charge of rescue operations amd risks his own life to save others, by descending into the mass of debris in search of survivors.
