Making the Pantry

That little room that serves as a special adjunct to your kitchen—the pantry—was an American invention, our editor Jeanmarie Andrews informs us, and evolved through the colonial and early nation periods to become today’s necessity. But a pantry can be a problematic place when you want to match a particular style with the period of your home. In our October 2010 issue, we guide you through the history of the pantry and offer advice on how to make yours a perfect match.

An Apology and Update

We want to apologize for any problems you may have had with this website in early September. An ill-starred update by our web host caused parts of this site to malfunction. As a result, subscription attempts resulted in errors. Our host has rectified the problem.

For the safety of our staff (who have thus far eluded the Corona virus), we have been working remotely, leaving our office untended. However, we will staff our office on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9AM to Noon, Eastern Time, to take your calls at 440-543-8566. If you need human assistance, please call us then. Otherwise, email is the quickest way to get into contact with us.  [MORE]
