The Victorian Kitchen
#2
Very interesting article, thanks for sharing it.  As the family chef (yes, dads can cook too, lol :P ) and a tad of a history buff, I love learning about how meals were prepped in ages past. 

The only issue I see with that type of kitchen layout today is that most newer houses seem to have the kitchen in the center; there's a living room/family room/foyer/something to the side.  In essence, no matter where you're going, you have to pass through the kitchen, so I could see how an inward oriented kitchen could cause traffic from family to get underfoot.

On the flip side, older houses I've been in have the kitchen isolated from the main activity areas of the house; on the back or side where you don't "have" to pass through it when you come in through the front door.

That being said, I'm still looking at building a kitchen island this year sometime, which would make our kitchen more "inward oriented."  The island would help free up food prep space.

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil
