The wall was so high that no one outside could see in to know what a beautiful garden was behind it, what wonderful, exotic flowers there were in the garden, flowers of every type and color you can imagine, and exotic herbs good for cooking and medicines.
The reason why the kitchen is so well equipped can be found in the fairytale. With all those wonderful herbs and exotic flowers at her disposal, Dame Gothel surely could cook up a storm (literally). Inside the custom made gothic style cupboards, you will find everything from a garlic press to Waterless Stainless Steel Pots to ensure that every meal is a masterpiece! Windows were placed strategically to provide a splendid view even while standing in front of the basin (not that you ever will since the castle is serviced daily).
And to make absolutely sure that everything is prepared according to her strictest requirement, Dame Gothel herself will keep a watchful eye from above…
And why not try out a few recipes from one of the cooking books available in the kitchen? It is time to be adventurous and daring! The beautifully crafted stained glass double doors leading from the kitchen to the open patio will form the perfect backdrop to the rustic kitchen table that will proudly display your culinary skills.
And believe me there will be enough to talk about while enjoying your meal: the Duke of Clarence plate and breathtaking icons painted by Zephne Labuschagne will surely proof to be interesting conversation pieces.
