What a fine estate with the rarest of views. How pleasant to work in such a kitchen and that pantry is amazing!

I'll tell you what.. I'd rather be the family dining at that breakfast table than the servants who toiled from early morning to night making sure the family had all the nice meals they wanted. :-) I love the Pittock Mansion, too. I need to go back.

Thank you so much for the links and recommendations, I'll check them out! I have discovered a few others since I posted this too. Will share them all sometime soon.


From what I understand, a good cook was hard to keep, so a well-equipped and turned out kitchen (with a view!) probably had something to do with that. One of the perks of the job.
