Pizza made in a wood fired oven is a heavenly treat, the thought of it all takes me back to the early 70′s when Pizza Hut cooks knew how to make a fabulous “thin and crispy”. This month, December will be a milestone for Stanton in that the kitchen is going to have an upgrade.
Stanton has never actually had a fitted kitchen in the engineering mode or in the culinary sense that we know and love. Mister Smeg and Monsieur Miele were never guests here.
Yes, over the years the house has witnessed the comings and goings of an assorted line up of fridges and the odd cooktop in the room downstairs we now use as an informal dining room, but nothing grand, imposing, or even inspirational.
We get by with a few benches that do their part as well as a stainless steel sink of 1980′s vintage that is an ageing reminder of washing up in the past. Until recent history two of the fireplaces still had attached swing out metal arms for holding up the rabbit stew.
