The evolution of the kitchen
The development of the kitchen in the western world has been intricately and intrinsically linked with the development of the cooking range or stove. Until the 18th century, open fire or charcoal were the sole means of heating food, and the architecture of the kitchen reflected this. When technical advances brought new ways to heat food in the 18th and 19th centuries, architects took advantage of newly-gained flexibility to bring fundamental changes to the kitchen.
Water on tap in private homes only became gradually available in the western world during industrialisation and more recently than that; before, water had to be collected from the nearest outdoor source: well, pump, or spring, and then carried to the kitchen and heated or used in some other way.
Today's kitchens serve as more than just places to cook up dinner. Modern kitchens are more and more often the home's central gathering place, an area where families socialize and spend time together as much as they actually sit down for meals.
