The Pursuit of Excellence

 

Authenticity and Modernity

La Cornue is a kitchen legend. After more than 100 years, it is still a family-owned brand that remains an inspiration to generations of cooks. 

Founded in France in 1908 by Albert Dupuy, La Cornue is now run by his grandson, Xavier Dupuy. At the heart of the design is Albert’s original patented ‘vaulted oven’. Loved by chefs and serious cooks alike, it concentrates the natural circulation of hot air, retaining natural moisture to enhance both taste and texture.    

Every foodie’s dream, La Cornue range cookers are handmade to order in workshops just outside Paris. Every range cooker is a complete one off; sized, equipped and finished to commission. The construction is a meticulous, artisanal process using luxurious materials including brass, steel, cast iron and enamel. Hobs are personalised, chosen from options including solid brass burners, electric, vitro-ceramic or induction hobs, simmering plates and teppan-yaki, and ovens can be gas, electric or a combination of both.
