Here;s a different floor plan I came across for the kitchens. By looking at the floor plans, I think that they were in a seperate building. I can't place them anywhere in Versailles itself. Unless by looking a the below floor plans if they were located in the basement of the central part of the palace.

The middle section I mean. But there had to be more kitchens throughout the Chateau. I know there is a small kitchen above Madame du Barry's apartments!

I went to this forum and searched for kitchens, my French is really bad, I am just at a beginner level as I am still learning, but I found this thread about the kitchens, it mentions the Trianon I don't know if it is the kitchens of Versaille or the trianon, it mentions the house of the Queen so I don't know if it is the Hamlet There are some more floor plans and pictures, here's the link so you and anyone else who speaks French can read it...there are some great photos there . I can't figure it out.

In the second post on that thread, it has a photo labelled Vue d'un garage de Trianon, ancienne cuisine

Post Re: Plans of the Chateau de Versailles
I was right! The trianons kitchens were separate from the Trianon because in Madame De Pompadours residences, she had them seperate, as she detested the smell of kitchens...
Like me!

There is a kitchenette in the ground floior of the trianon but it was used to re-heat the food, or keep it warm...
As was the kitchen at Le Hameau.

I didn't know that about the Trianon and the kitchen, I knew the site was saying something about the Trianon. Thank you for letting me know that, Comte.

It was standard practice for aristocratic homes of the 18th Century (and before) for the kitchens to be located in a separate building; if there was not enough open land for this, than they were usually located in a basement or service wing.

Was this the same with all of the Chateaus?

I can't think to what building the Versailles kitchen would be in if not in the palace itself, by the floor plan it looks as if it was in Versailles basement. I know that in Russia the kitchen was seperate.

It was indeed, Chateaux were normally layed out this way. Madame de Pompadour especially hated the smell. I love that. The Kitchens at Saint Cloud were at the end of the Orangerie, and then Napolean the III had them installed in the Dependencies. It's a smart decision I think...

Thank you for that bit of intormation. I didn't know that about Madame De Pompadour. I was wondering about Fontainebleau, I tried to find something about the kitchen for that chateau but came up empty, actually I haven't even seen a really good floor plan of that Chateau its self.
