Our dear friend Stacey recently moved into an amazing apartment and she invited us to come over last night and inaugurate the new stove. Can you imagine how excited and flattered I was to be asked to come and play on a marvelous, brand new Lacanche stove?
Stacey has that special sense, an ability to recognize happiness and to be grateful when she finds it. Life has dealt her some hard knocks, so maybe that’s why she knows life is fleeting and we should enjoy while we can. Which is my longwinded way of saying that Stacey is so happy when her kitchen is full of people and noise and the smell of food cooking. It was an honor and a privilege to get that stove fired up last night. We had 5 of the 6 burners going all at once, it was fantastic! Sautéed chicken, seared scallops, green beans with prosciutto, basmati rice, it was like playing a piano, sliding pots, dialing in the heat adjustments, that stove is a thing of beauty!
