A farmhouse kitchen is a kitchen room designed for food preparation, dining and a sociable space. Typical of poorer farmhouses throughout the Middle Ages where rooms were limited, wealthier households would separate the smoke of the kitchen from the dining and entertaining areas, farmhouse kitchens were also known as smoke kitchens. Extractor hood and modern stoves have allowed the reintroduction of farmhouse kitchen to architecture.

Farmhouse Kitchen was a cookery programme produced by Yorkshire Television during the 1970s and 1980s.
