The Inquisitor’s Palace: The Credenza

 In TasteHistory

The credenza was an integral part of every respected kitchen. It betrays an interesting development from an area where to store utensils to a sideboard, a furniture piece to store dishes.

At the Inquisitor’s Palace, it seems that to a certain extent, the credenza also served as an extension to the kitchen for the preparation or cooking of delicacies, since besides four large lockable cabinets and a sideboard, in 1759, the credenza had stoves, a coffee roaster and coffee grinder, three sorbettiere (ice cream makers) and a utensil to freeze fruits.
