French term or phrase: depense
Can anyone tell me what 'depense' means (in Dutch or English) in the following context: 'I was all alone in what is called 'the depense', in the other house next door.'

Explanation:
Naast uitgaven etc betekent 'dépense' soms ook 'provisiekamer, etenskast / pantry(E)'- vandaar is het een kleine stap naar bv. 'bijkeuken'

Onder provisiekamer mag inderdaad soms ook wel 'bijkeuken' verstaan worden en ik denk dat het dit is wat bedoeld wordt met 'the depense' in de gegeven context.

No real references (execept for my dictionary), but you'll find confirmations at www.granddictionnaire.com for 'pantry'

provisiekamer, bijkeuken


Explanation:
Van Dale zegt "provisiekamer". Bijkeuken lijkt mij het juiste woord, maar dan heb ik meer context nodig.

Succes
