ORDER AT THE ROYAL COURT
In 1679, Margrave Wilhelm Ludwig had kitchen rules drawn up for the Baden-Baden residence. These remained in effect after the family moved to the new palace in Rastatt and even after his death in 1707. The kitchen rules outlined in detail how the royal kitchen servants were to behave. The head cook, a master of household and an additional officer supervised the cooks and their assistants. Rules were to be strictly followed.
