This is the kitchen in the basement of the castle in Vianden, Luxemburg. No counterspace, but look at those hearth! I love to see these old kitchens, and find myself imagining how the women would work here, what they would cook. Try to smell the wood and the hams hanging to dry....
(If you would like to see a really impressing kitchen, try Kasteel de Haar at Haarzuilens -in English- ). We visited the castle in Vianden during our 4-day trip in Luxemburg.
After walking back the steep winding road down to the village, we deserved kaffee mit kuchen, or coffee with strudel. Do I have to confess here that I scraped everones plate for the vanillasauce? If you are interested in antique and medieval cuisine I recommend you visit Cristianne Muussers website Coquinaria, where she shows recipes from the culinary past.
