Spadina's historic kitchen represents the first decade of the 20th century, when the lively Austin family were part of the social whirl of Toronto¹s Edwardian heyday. The enormous ice box, slate sinks, gas and iron stoves, furniture and cupboards are still in their original locations, as is everything throughout this magnificent historic house museum. On occasional weekends and during all special events, the kitchen is animated by cooks costumed as Mrs Austin¹s staff once was, as they bake period-appropriate recipes in the "Miss Canada" gas stove, for visitors to taste. Visitors may also see the remnants of the 1818 basement kitchen, one of the earliest surviving in Toronto.
