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.
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.
