If you were a servant in the 18th century, you
needed to know how to prepare meals, and how to
cook meals. Usually, if you were in a wealthy family,
you should have about seven courses at a party. The
children would sit at a separete table away from the adults.
Some people had five servants. Others could have twelve. If you
were a young girl and not very wealthy, you might have to stay in the house all day and help your mother make meals, clean the house, or take care of siblings. If you were a servant, you would have to collect herbs from the garden,and get fruit and veggietables from the market. Basically, you would have to collect all the ingrediants if you didn't already have them.
