how to spend it

A mainstay of the traditional kitchen, the larder is making a comeback as a desirable way to store everything – just so. Jenny Dalton reports.
… Are these less-specialist larder cupboards without marble or stone shelves pushing the definition of the larder itself? For Charlotte Hill-Baldwin, sales and marketing director of John Lewis of Hungerford, whose freestanding wooden larders (from £4,820) can be customised in colour and layout, the ideal larder should include “good ventilation, a cold shelf, hooks and spice hangers”. As for a pantry, this should have “cool marble slabs, a cheese box, bottle holders and plenty of hooks for hanging game or herbs”.
