The kitchen wing at Skogaholm

The red-painted wings at Skogaholm manor come from Gullaskruv in Småland. The eastern wing contains the kitchen which was housed in a separate building because of the risk of fire. And with the kitchen at a distance the manor was not disturbed. Food was prepared on the iron range and there was special provision for dishes requiring lengthy cooking. There was also a bread oven. The finished dishes, covered by domed brass lids, were carried over the yard to the dining room in the main building. The kitchen wing also houses a maids’ room with three beds, a larder, the servants’ dining room and the housekeeper’s room. The west wing contains the library, the china pantry and five guest rooms. In the pantry the blue and white china service used for special occasions is displayed.
