Most of us had extra time on our hands during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, and for many that meant spending more time in the kitchen. We experimented with sourdough. We were obsessed with mastering banana bread. And who can forget our obsession with Dalgona coffee? That’s when we realized we weren’t the only ones finding solace in the kitchen.Author Ina Garten modern comfort food and go-to dinnerwas also in the kitchen and realized it hadn’t been updated in 25 years. So she embarked on a complete renovation, and the results were spectacular, from new appliances and countertops to her dream pantry.
The centerpiece of Garten’s kitchen renovation is a beautiful Lacanche stove and oven. Lacanche is a French brand that handcrafts its products in the Burgundy region of France. Garten stoves and ovens are instantly recognizable as high-quality products. Lacanche’s brochure lists the most basic model at $8,250 and the largest at $24,500. However, buyers can also choose different colors, burner configurations, trim levels, and more to completely customize their oven and stove setup to suit their needs.
In response to a fan’s question, Garten explained that her Lacanche has “one gas burner, one electric oven, and one gas oven.”
Apparently, the burner has much more power than a regular gas stove, making it perfect for professional cooks and even wok cooking. Garten says, “The oven is working perfectly, and the burners tend to run hotter than most burners, so the (Lacanche) braising plate comes in handy.” A stewing plate will help spread the heat.
Stainless steel cookware hangs above the stove, which Garten says is all-clad.
Another highlight of Garten’s kitchen remodel is the beautiful countertop, which swirls in gray and white. Garten confirmed in the comments section of the post that they were Calcutta gold marble from Italy. Marble takes a little more effort to maintain, but its sleek appearance and the fact that it’s one of the best surfaces for tasks such as kneading and shaping dough, and even candy and chocolate making make it worth it. There is.
While we’re happy that Ina Garten finally has her dream kitchen, we have to admit that we hope she gets something good out of it. Perhaps another great cookbook.
