Stovetop Goodness

• 31 August 2009






























Many of you are surprised I'm still meal planning here in France amidst the chaos that is our lives right now. Well, I'll tell you why...because I get to cook on this bad boy! The star of the cottage is this pimped out French stove that is so beautiful, I can hardly bear to mess it up {but I do}. It seemed only right to place a nice stove in the kitchen since the cottage used to be the town's Four Banal a few hundred years ago.

Deciding on the size of stove was easy (see top right), but the color was a whole other issue. There were so many lovely hues to choose from! We ended up choosing the color pictured above, top left, as it complimented the stone and the antique terracotta tiles the best. I confess it will be difficult to go back to my cheap, American, electric stovetop after cooking on a La Canche. It's too bad they are more than double the price in the US. Drat. I guess I'd better enjoy it while I can!

We have this range! When we did our remodel we splurged a bit (it's still not as pricey as say a WOLF) and put it in! I LOVE it. Not only is it beautiful but it is a pleasure to cook on and in!

Girlfrog, did you say you found this for the same price as a Wolf? We called a place in Seattle and the quote was around $8-10K. Where did you find yours? You are one luh-uh-cky girl!

That stove is a work of art...I would be afraid to cook on it, for fear of getting it dirty.
