A Tour of my Kitchen


ruth crilly house tour

“Tour” is a bit of a grand word to use, isn’t it, for what amounts to a quickish snoop around the room that I cook and eat in, but there we go. It’s a thing, online, apparently. House tour, office tour, tour of my makeup kit, bathroom cabinet tour, tour of my shoe closet. The internet is stuffed to the gills with tours of this and that, and who am I to ruin the fun with a sensible (more accurate) title?

Quickish Look at Stuff in my Kitchen

I swear that deliberating over video titles takes me more time than filming the bloody things in the first place. I’m always torn between the extra views that a contrived, by-popular-demand sort of title will produce and the fact that worlds such as “haul”, “tour” and “journey” (My Divorce Journey! My Breast Implant Journey!) make me want to repeatedly prick my own eyeballs with a dessert fork.

Anyway, here’s a tour of my kitchen (please join an orderly queue for tickets and make sure you stay behind the man who is holding up the red umbrella – don’t stray from the group and keep an eye on your belongings!) including a lengthy diatribe on the pros and cons of AGA cookers and a peek inside my pantry cabinet. Ooh err.

    Oh I wouldn’t reinstate the servants bells, the children would be ringing them all the time when they are teenagers making you run up and down the stairs with their cups of tea and snacks, and it won’t do your knees any favours….DON’T DO IT! Lol xx

    I like the though of having servant bells to summon my husband for drinks and food, but seeing that he might start using them as well to summon ME would make me reconsider fixing them.

    I’m more of a modernist in my tastes for kitchens and homes. Older homes just seem to grand and formal for my casual ways. Still it’s such a spacious kitchen. Living in California, I’m not sure I’d like the AGA cooker being on all the time. I love the clock! Approximately how old is the house?

    Love the farmhouse chairs, and btw the kitchen is massive :) I like the juxtaposition of Scandi chairs with farmhouse trestle tables- trying to find furniture here as well, albeit for a much much smaller flat!
