Welcome to the Kitchens

Welcome to McCollum Castle Kitchens

In days past, castle kitchens were sometimes built as separate buildings in an attempt to protect the living quarters from potential cooking fires. It was also helpful when the walls were made of stone.

Here are some examples of kitchens from the 15th and 16th centuries. 

Menzies Castle Kitchen

Kitchen is #2 with the Great Hall #1 right next door.

Hampton Court Kitchen – you can see where the constant cooking fires have scorched the wall.

Here in McCollum Castle, I have some recipes located on the right upper side under More From the Kitchen.
