Organizing a Pantry: Pantry Ideas and Inspiration.

G'Day and welcome to Natasha In Oz! I'm so glad you have found time in your busy day to spend some time with me in my little corner of the world!

Today I am so excited to be sharing some pictures of my pantry with you! I know people don't normally get excited about pantries but, well, I am so in love with mine!

According to Wikipedia, a pantry is a room where food, provisions
or dishes are stored and served in an ancillary capacity to the kitchen. The derivation of the
word is from the same source as the Old French term paneterie; that is from
pain, the French form of the Latin pan for bread.

Pantries can be big....

Or they can be Petite.

They can be neat,

And they can be well-used and piled high with stuff!

Catherine Pond's love of pantries inspired her to write a book about them!




She says...“Unlike the sterile Victorian workrooms and their even smaller successors, today’s kitchen—whether large or small—is the deliberate center of the American home…According to a 2005 National Association of Home Builders survey, walk-in pantries are the most requested feature in kitchens today. Perhaps it is the popular return of home cooking and baking. Perhaps it stems from the 1990s trend of nesting and stockpiling for the ‘new millennium,’ world disaster, or a cozy blizzard. Perhaps it is because a good pantry makes sense.”
