Bloke on M4 April 5, 2020 at 2:54 pm the implication is that it’s stuff you already have, rather than having to make a special shop for things. Arthur the Cat April 5, 2020 at 3:03 pm I wonder how many homes still have a pantry, in the sense of a separate cool room in which to keep food, rather than a fridge, a freezer and cupboards in the kitchen and/or utility room? Dennis, Gourmand April 5, 2020 at 3:04 pm the implication is that it’s stuff you already have, rather than having to make a special shop for things. And it actually calls for more ingredients than your basic banana bread recipe. That’s the part you can’t make up. Tim Worstall April 5, 2020 at 3:12 pm None of the people we know are prole enough not to have a pantry, surely? dearieme April 5, 2020 at 3:17 pm Our cupboard under the stairs, with a tiled floor, makes a pretty good pantry/wine cellar. What we don’t have is the sort of larder my mother had, and a meat safe on the outside northern wall. jgh April 5, 2020 at 3:27 pm Proler than thou, I don’t have a pantry. Just a fridge and a cupboard above it in the kitchen. I have a laundry room! My washing machine is in the cellar under the kitchen. Tractor Gent April 5, 2020 at 4:39 pm Both houses I lived in as a kid had a pantry, and it was never called a larder. The boiler room in my house now might have been a larder in a previous age (larder as I’m dahhn sahhf 🙂) dearieme April 5, 2020 at 4:59 pm Pantry vs larder. My mother had both, pantry of the south wall, larder on the north. Larder cool with tiled shelves and floor, pantry drier with wooden. Pantry with cubby hole above for small children to hide in and later to make liquorice drinks in. Bliss it was etc. RichardT April 5, 2020 at 5:07 pm Tim Worstall said “None of the people we know are prole enough not to have a pantry, surely?” We have one, but our hovel is 18th century. Think it depends on when your house was built. 1960s probably the last ones to have a pantry? But then that’s just rephrasing your statement; “None of the people we know are prole enough not to have a modern house, surely?” Andrew C April 5, 2020 at 5:27 pm If you’re short of any particular ingredient, you can pad out the recipe with toilet roll. Dennis: Oppressor, Warmonger, Capitalist and Consumer of Petroleum Products April 5, 2020 at 5:40 pm If you’re short of any particular ingredient, you can pad out the recipe with toilet roll. Right now steak is easier to find and often cheaper than toilet paper. MC April 5, 2020 at 6:30 pm A pantry is a very useful thing to have. Ideal for storing cheese and other things which don’t want to be fridge cold, nor to be at the temperature of a modern home. Likewise a cellar. Message to the editor; I am not sure Newspaper Watch is the right heading for items about Salon, Vox etc. Something like Online Repositories of Halfwitted Mentalism Watch might be better. Bloke in North Dorset April 5, 2020 at 7:20 pm My first Army quarter (‘85) had one and it was very useful. they weren’t particularly old houses, ‘50s maybe ‘60s.

No need to spend your evenings in the lounge watching your own underwear drying. I reckon having a laundry room is the definition of being upper working class. Addolff April 6, 2020 at 6:58 am “Larder? Luxury, we used to dream of having a larder”. We didn’t even have a proper kitchen, just a scullery.
