Italian kitchens in old homes often have wood-burning grills
From the herringbone-brick ceiling to the terracotta tile floor, this is how a real Tuscan villa kitchen often looks. Typically, there are white stucco walls and unfitted wood and painted cabinets. A close look reveals two chimneys – a small one over a utility range and the large one venting the wood-burning camino — the fireplace and indoor grill where a great deal of cooking takes place. A huge basin sink with two spigots is way in the back, with a plate rack overhead. The refrigerator is adjacent to the table, on the window wall.
