There were several tours on audio- we took the Henry VIII's kitchen tour first.
the kitchens often fed up to 600 guests!!! And serving meat showed how wealthy a King was and Henry VIII was out to impress!
This was one of the stew corners- where huge couldrons ccoked soup or stew!
A clerk recorded all the meals that went to the dining hall and everything that came back- the incredible behind scenes was the accouting and the consumption of so much food and wine. The pewter platters were counted as all the utensils in service- a mammoth task.
