A few nice traditional kitchen images I found:
The Grove, University of Mississippi (Ole Miss), Oxford, Mississippi

The Grove is the legendary tailgating area located at the center of the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) campus. It is approximately 10 acres (4.0 ha) in size and is shaded by oak, elm and magnolia trees hence the grove part of the name.
Surrounded by ancient oaks, mysterious elms, and Mississippi magnolias, the Southern legend known as “The Grove” graciously plays host, most autumn Saturday afternoons, to thousands of Ole Miss Rebel tailgaters. Located in the heart of the University of Mississippi, Southern manners and rich tradition reign supreme at a college football tradition second to none.
The Ole Miss Alumni Association’s Grove Society began in 1998 to preserve the 10-acre (4.0 ha) green space. The Grove Society posts a strict schedule for the event.
Described as "the Holy Grail of tailgating sites" by Sporting News, The Grove comes to life for Ole Miss Rebels football home games with as many as 25,000 fans. Fans arrive often around 2:00PM the day before the game (campus rule is no one allowed to "stake their claim" before 9:00 pm, which is enforced by campus police) to grab their spot in The Grove. This usually serene area of campus becomes a sea of red, white and blue tents. Ole Miss students generally dress in their Sunday best: Men wear slacks, button-up shirts, bow ties, Sperry Top Siders, and coats while women wear cocktail dresses or brightly colored sundresses and high heel shoes. Some older fans also dress in this style.
Many tents are set up with fine kitchen ware. You’ll often find lots of lace and designer doilies, fine china, chandeliers, sterling silver or silver plated candelabras and sterling silver or silver plated utensils. Much of the food is laid out on table cloths in sterling silver or silver-plated servers.
The food fare often consists of hors d’oeuvres, but as with most tailgating parties, barbecue still has authority. There’s also the traditional Southern food: fried chicken, pork, homemade dressings, mashed potatoes and stuffed eggs.
Every now and then, a loud voice breaks the hum of the crowd present in The Grove with the yell, "Are you READY?" This is the beginning of the Ole Miss cheer, known as "Hotty Toddy."

Euston Rural Pastimes Event 2014
8th June 2014
Celebrating 23 Years!
A traditional, English Country Fair for all the family.
Has now been held every June for 23 years. It began as a fundraising show for our local Blackbourne Churches and St Nicholas’ Hospice Care with the kind permission of our President The Duke of Grafton, who allowed the event to be held in the magnificent setting of Euston Park.
Together with John Farrow (the farm manager at that time) and Tim Fogden we set up a volunteer committee, which has continued to run this successful one day Show. We have raised over £450,000 for our causes over the years.
The programme has been broadly similar each year, but with increasing entries the demand for space has required more parking and display areas. A new entrance between the stationary engines and stalls, leads past the traction engines to the new Grafton Ring specifically for tractors.
The main Norfolk Ring has a constant programme of events, displays, demonstrations and parades. It is surrounded by band music, a busy tea tent and further stalls. Leading past the Craft Tent, the Suffolk Ring is home to a large display of Heavy Horses. Nearby is the start of the hugely popular Farm Rides. It has also been associated with a magnificent display of flowers in Euston Church.
There are several catering outlets, but the most popular are the excellent lunches served in the Hall kitchen.
Keeping very much to the same format we hope to continue to attract the numbers, which filled the car park completely last year.
What to see:
Steam Engines (Traction Engines, Road Roller, Commercial and Public Service Vehicles)
Classic and Vintage Cars
Three Show Rings (Norfolk, Suffolk & Grafton) featuring many display throughout the day.
This year featuring The Knights of the Damned jousting display team.
Performing in a fantastic, coloured costumed display of Medieval Jousting at its very best. Consisting of heroic mounted knights and their squires and enhanced by our own commentator the tournament begins with fanfares and introductions and ends with the dramatic thundering of hooves as the knights attempt to unhorse each other in the ‘JOUST’. Watch as the knights hone their skills by striking the man-shaped target, the quintain, and attempt to spear peasants heads off the ground at speed. The show also boasts superbly choreographed foot fights with unmerciless swords, flaming fireballs on chains and unyielding quarterstaffs as well as the knights romantically accepting favours from the ladies and fighting for their honour.
Snowshill Manor (NT) 10-08-2013

Snowshill Manor near Broadway in Gloucestershire, is a Cotswold Manor and built from traditional yellow stone and home to a fine collection of everyday objects collected by Charles Wade, with over 22,000 items in this eclectic collection. The collection consists of costumes, of which there are 2000 pieces, Samurai armour, children’s toys, bicycles, musical instruments to fine clocks and many more unusual and extraordinary treasures, thousands of objects are laid out for you to see just as Mr Wade intended.
“Let nothing perish” was his motto, and his life was dedicated to doing just that. From the everyday to the extraordinary, you can discover his passion for craftsmanship, colour and design.
Charles Wade originated from Yoxford in Suffolk, where he was a craftsman and architect, but lived a number of years in the Priest’s House whilst arranging his massive collection of objects from 1900 until 1951 when the National Trust was given the Manor.
The manor has been through many changes throughout the years, with the main part of the house standing since 1500, with major works taking place in 2004.
The terraced, 2 acre, hillside garden surrounds the manor and is in the style of the Arts and Crafts era, divided into different rooms, each containing various architectural features and including pond areas, which are a haven for insects and wildlife. There is also a Kitchen garden and large vegetable plot, the vegetables from which are used in the restaurant.
