Once again simplicity is the main feature applied to this room. The architect Gabriel (a favourite of Louis XV) designed the arches that makes out the ceiling of the room. Today the large fireplace and chimney still stands as a testimony to the many meals that were heated here before being carried into the dining rooms.
A large wooden table is placed in the middle of the kitchen; this is a typical example of the rustic simplicity that Marie Antoinette wanted in her little escape from the extravagant splendour of Versailles. The kitchen itself is placed right next to the vegetable gardens so the kitchen always had access to fresh vegetables.
