Hogwarts kitchens

From Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, chapter 21, The House-Elf Liberation Front, moment 2, "Hogwarts Kitchens".

The Hogwarts kitchens are the kitchens at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They are run by house-elves.


The Hogwarts kitchens is an enormous, high-ceilinged room, as large as the Great Hall above it. Mounds of glittering brass pots and pans are heaped around the stone walls, and there is a great brick fireplace at one end of the room

The entrance to the kitchens is behind a painting of a gigantic silver fruit-bowl. When the huge green pear in the fruit bowl is tickled, it turns into a large green door handle, through which you can enter the room.

From the Story

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Discovered in chapter 21, The House-Elf Liberation Front

There are four long wooden tables that stand in the kitchens, which are positioned exactly beneath the four house tables in the Great Hall above. Harry guesses that before dinner they would be laden with dishes that are then sent up through the ceiling to their counterparts above.
