Mon Nouvel Amour – La Cornue

(I don’t speak French – so that title is probably super wrong… anyway …)
Kyle and I were killing time before a movie, so we browsed through Williams-Sonoma, where I found the stove of my dreams by La Cornue. I’d not heard of them, probably because I’ve never been in the right income bracket to even look into them. But they’ve been around since 1908 and “is legendary for its beautiful stoves made to order for the great kitchens of France. Guided by the idea that ‘true values and just principles never diminish with age,’ La Cornue chairman Xavier Dupuy has said, ‘Every cooker we build has a soul.’ To the connoisseur, a La Cornue stove is the absolute best.”
And no wonder – this particular model here is $48,000. I’m going to need a bigger piggy bank.
