Written by Redactie on Tuesday 17 January 2017
The place where we prepare the food we eat has been a central part of human life since the dawn of time. Check out the evolution of the kitchen.
From the Prehistory til the future
The humble kitchen started as nothing more than an open fire, as important for staving off the cold as it was for preparing meals, and gradually evolved over time to include the plethora of modern comforts we are used to today.
During most of the 20th century, the kitchen was the focal point of the household, in no
small part due to the time it took to prepare a meal. It is exactly that aspect of time,
however, that is being targeted most by modern advances in kitchen technology.
