Vive La Difference
At Hearth & Cook, you’ll be able to see that all La Cornue cookers are made with both quality and beauty in mind, and those standards are not lowered even for the entry level Cornufe.
A La Cornue Cooker is a significant investment but it is considered to be one of the very best on the market and a rare find for those who covet them. For over 100 years, La Cornue have continually evolved and refined their ovens to maintain their position as the crème de la crème of the kitchen. Available in both gas and electric options, the Chateau Series boast the vaulted ceiling to the professional-capacity oven, and the gas version now comes with an innovation which La Cornue calls the RCC disk. This disk type structure to the oven floor allows heating in a three-fold fashion: radiation, like a grill, convection, as traditional oven cooking, and conduction, as the heat rises from the disk. The Chateau Series is available in 16 colours, including ‘greige’, described as the ‘colour of raw silk’ and can also be customized in a one-of-a-kind colour. Standard Trim options include, polished brass, brushed brass, brushed stainless steel, brushed nickel, polished chrome and polished copper.
Choosing the colour of your La Cornue is just part of the bespoke commission: Hearth & Cook will talk you through exactly which features will suit you best, and then the specifications will be handed back to the La Cornue factory at Saint-Ouen-l’Aumone, where one expert craftsman will build your cooker from start to finish. Such is the commitment to doing the best job he can that there will be no hurrying: as La Cornue says, ‘this is why even the great and the good wait patiently for what will be their ultimate pleasure’! And when ‘your’ craftsman has finished creating, he will number your range, rather like very special limited edition art.
Alongside the range cookers, La Cornue product extends to exquisitely designed kitchen cabinetry, including their superb La Cornue Island Units, designed around the Château of your choice, whilst the La Cornue Flamberge Rôtisserie turns and roasts food to perfection. The ultimate in cooking equipment derived from the nation who invented haute cuisine, is available to view, experience and buy from Hearth & Cook.
