Mission Santa Barbara

The Mission's kitchen display is typical of the indoor cooking facilities of the early 1800s. Cooking was done both outdoors and indoors. Indoor cooking was usually done by women over hot, glowing charcoal.

Food sources included large gardens, orchards and adjacent ranchos. They supplied the mission with fruit, vegetables, livestock and grains that included wheat, barley, oats and corn.

In the mission's historic kitchen, original adobe is visible.
