The middle classes would often use the kitchen as the main family room, whereas the upper classes really used it just as a kitchen and usually allowed the room to be run entirely by cooks and maids. All the things we take for granted now such as running water and sinks, electricity to boil a kettle or light the room, were not so readily available throughout history. In the very early days, people had to carry pots or jugs of water a long way.
In fact, in medieval ages, peasants did not have their own kitchens. Public kitchens were used and only the rich or wealthy had their own kitchen, usually with a cook. It is a world so far removed from our modern way of life, and so fascinating. Cooking was mostly done over an open fire and was obviously a much lengthier and harder process than we are used to today. Fires were used to keep warm and to cook and food was obviously very basic. But even our earliest ancestors enjoyed sharing a meal with others and it has always been considered a social event, even in the early days of mankind.
