pantry


pantry
[13] A pantry is etymologically a ‘bread’ room. The word comes from Old French paneterie ‘cupboard for keeping bread’, a derivative of panetier ‘servant in charge of bread’. This was adopted from medieval Latin pānetārius, an alteration of late Latin pānārius ‘bread-seller’, which in turn was a derivative of Latin pānis ‘bread’ (source also of English pannier). The notion of ‘bread storage’ survived into English, but was gradually lost in the face of the extended ‘food store’. => PANNIER

   The room in which provisions and cooking utensils are kept was originally a bread store. Hence the origin of the word in Old French panetrie, ultimately from Latin panis, 'bread.'
