Larder: a cool area for storing food prior to use.

Originally, larders were where raw meat was larded – covered in fat – to be preserved. By the 18th century, the term had expanded to include dry storage as well for staples like bread, milk, butter, or cooked meats. Larders were commonplace in houses before the widespread use of the refrigerator.
