Natives of Kish used to build a roofed area with walls in the corner of the yard with vents for creating a current of air and sending out the smoke produced by cooking. These kitchens had no doors and were often used in the summer for cooking food, baking local breads, and milling wheat and barley. Those who could not afford to build walls, would use Daan (woven palm leaves) for erecting this type of kitchen. The kitchen of this house has been restored in the old style with the cooking utensils in place. Rice, salt, and starch of some forty years ago are still visible in this kitchen.
