The power of two
Downton Abbey’s legacies is the new taste for secondary kitchens
amounts of storage. Despite the presence of enough people to field a rugby team—including a photographer, videographer, make-up artist and assistants—the long-suffering homeowner managed to carry on family life with her two small children and a husband who had been temporarily laid low.
The fact that she barely turned a hair is, no doubt, thanks to her second kitchen. As she looks forward to Christmas, she can be confident in the knowledge that even the most riotous family party would fail to disturb the serenity of her sublime entertaining and cooking space.
