Ever since Albert Dupuy invented the first La Cornue oven over a century ago, the company has stood at the forefront of cooking design, craftsmanship and innovation. As such, La Cornue has developed a reputation as one of its industry’s leaders, and one of the world’s most luxurious brand names in the world of kitchen design.

Our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc., is proud to not only offer La Cornue’s outstanding line of cooking range products, but to display four La Cornue pieces in our beautiful showroom – a CornuFé range, a CornuFé 1908, a Flamberge Rotisserie, and an absolutely stunning Château range.

Much of our partnership with La Cornue is thanks to the tireless work of our business ally and friend Craig Kmiecik, the East Coast Territory Manager for La Cornue at Purcell Murray Company. For over 30 years, Purcell Murray has personified culinary passion and provided the most exquisite brands of appliances, including La Cornue ovens.

In our opinion, the La Cornue product line begins with the CornuFé Series, the most streamlined and space-efficient line of La Cornue cooking ranges. Although your CornuFé range may be smaller than the CornuFé 1908 or Château range, it certainly does not lack in diversity, power, or beauty.

La Cornue CornuFé Range Specs and Info

Each CornuFé range boasts a choice of either one or two electric convection ovens, which provide seven distinct cooking modes. This allows the CornuFé the versatility needed to fulfill any recipe or culinary creation imaginable. The French enamel side-swing doors allow tremendous ease of entry and motion, and each CornuFé range comes with four interior oven racks – two flat and two dropped. In addition, the CornuFé includes two enamel baking trays and a trivet.

Each of the seven distinct cooking modes in CornuFé range ovens – thaw & serve, convection oven, convection broiling, convection assisted, conventional oven, browning and warming – covers its own array of recipes, foods and preparations. From the even-heat baking of the convection oven mode, to door-closed broiling for meat and fish, to simple crisping of quiches and pizza using the warming feature, the CornuFé range is versatile enough to handle the needs of any chef, home or professional.

The CornuFé range also has a French-inspired five burner cooktop that combines ample cooking space with unmatched power. The cooktop boasts a central, 17,500 BTU burner, three 12,000 BYU burners, and one 6,000 BTU simmer burner. As an optional extra feature, your CornuFé range can also handle a griddle on the cooktop.

Beyond the sheer power, versatility and cooking options the CornuFé range provides, the line is available in eight beautiful colors and three trim accents, which can be combined to match the taste of the owner. CornuFé ranges are available in Gloss Black, Matte Black, Pure White, Ivory White, Provence Blue, Royal Blue (the newest color option), Dark Navy Blue or Stainless Steel, and accented with Satin Chrome, Satin Chrome and Polished Copper, or Satin Chrome and Polished Brass trim.

The CornuFé series is available in two sizes: the CornuFé 90 (90 cm width, or 35.4 inches) and the CornuFé 110 (110 cm width, or 43 inches).

Summer 2016 Kitchen Design: La Cornue Blends Color And Sophistication

La Cornue Ranges & Rotisseries Blend Style & Elegance

By now, you know that Summer 2016 style is all about a blend of bold, fresh color and the comfort of home.

One of the most noticeable (and fun) ways to add bold color statements to your home is through world-class kitchen design. While many designers and homeowners choose new cabinetry and accent lighting to “make over” their kitchens, there is another solution that will truly make your home kitchen one-of-a-kind.

Welcome to the beautiful, luxurious world of La Cornue ranges and rotisseries.

Founded in 1908 by master artisan Albert Dupuy, La Cornue is the gold standard brand for kitchen technology with an artistic flair. For nearly 110 years, the Dupuy family has cultivated a reputation for the finest, most eye-catching kitchen ranges, ovens and rotisseries in the world.

The modern La Cornue range line (CornuFe, CornuFe 1908, and Chateau series) offer multiple cooktop configurations, gas and electric ranges (often combined into one appliance), a minimum of seven cooking modes, and patented vaulted oven designs for perfection in culinary craftsmanship.

Whether you prefer the compact CornuFe 90 or the opulent Chateau Grand Palais 180 (or something in between), La Cornue offers the finest in function and performance.

It is La Cornue’s unmatched color, personalization and material options that make their ranges and rotisseries a fabulous choice for your Summer 2016 kitchen design or makeover.

La Cornue Adds Color to Summer 2016 Kitchen Design

So how does La Cornue stand out from the competition when it comes to style? The answer is simple: no other world-class appliance creator offers such a wide, bold array of color and personalization options.

The CornuFé range line is available in eight beautiful colors and three trim accents, which can be combined to match the taste of the owner. CornuFé ranges are available in Gloss Black, Matte Black, Pure White, Ivory White, Provence Blue, Royal Blue (the newest color option), Dark Navy Blue or Stainless Steel, and accented with Satin Chrome, Satin Chrome and Polished Copper, or Satin Chrome and Polished Brass trim.

From brushed black to French blue, British racing green to antique white with flowers, the Chateau Series can be created in a virtually limitless combination of colors and accents. Since each Chateau Series range and oven is hand-made for you in La Cornue’s atelier outside Paris, you can be confident your personal design tastes will be catered to in meticulous fashion. And whether you prefer brass, steel or copper, your Chateau will come with the finest accent pieces.

Have you ever thought of your appliances as the bold accent points of your kitchen design? Imagine a stunning French blue range with Polished Brass trim as the conversation piece of your kitchen. What about a classic Ivory White range with Polished Copper accents, or a rich crimson Chateau range with Satin Chrome trim?

It’s no wonder that world-class, award-winning kitchen designers turn to La Cornue for their most luxurious and lauded kitchen designs. Some of the finest kitchen designers, such as Peter Salerno Inc., are distributors of La Cornue’s ranges and rotisseries (Peter Salerno’s award-winning Wyckoff, New Jersey showroom contains multiple La Cornue ranges and a gorgeous blue rotisserie).

The design professionals at Peter Salerno Inc. know that it isn’t just the unmatched quality of our designs and cabinetry that create an incredible kitchen; the appliances matter too.

La Cornue has created a simple solution: Create a classic looking range that even the most experienced professional chefs will enjoy cooking with. They mix different materials such as stainless steel, copper, and brass with fired porcelain bodies in a wide variety of colors. Because of their performance and timeless appearance they are a common feature in Peter Salerno Inc.’s Tesoro ™ Collection kitchens.

Photos and Information From Exclusive La Cornue Cooking Class With Peter Salerno

In early March, Peter Salerno Inc. hosted an exclusive cooking class for clients who purchased a world-renowned La Cornue range or rotisserie. The class was presided over by Larissa Taboryski, Culinary Director of La Cornue for Purcell Murray – one of the pre-eminent La Cornue culinary experts in the world.

Larissa’s expertise was evident well before the private class even started. Her preparation for the course was meticulous and full of fresh ingredients (including absolutely beautiful vegetables). She was precise and kind, happy to share each step of her process with Peter Salerno and his staff.

When our valued clients arrived, Larissa Taboryski and the Peter Salerno Inc. team welcomed them to a one-of-a-kind experience. Peter’s clients who have purchased La Cornue ranges and/or rotisseries are keenly aware of the dynamic, world-class nature of their appliances. As such, they paid close attention to Larissa’s presentation, hanging on every word and taking notes for home use.

The course took place in one of the crown jewels of Peter Salerno’s Wyckoff, NJ, showroom, the La Cornue kitchen. Equipped with the La Cornue Château 120 range and Flamberge Rôtisserie, Larissa had all the tools necessary to create a culinary masterpiece – and did she ever deliver!

At the 2015 KBIS convention, Peter Salerno Inc. won a national design award for Best Large Kitchen from the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). It was the 10th national kitchen and bath design award for Peter Salerno Inc. in the last 4 years, and an honor indeed.

But Peter Salerno wouldn’t have had the opportunity to create this kitchen without his outstanding clients, Julie and Tom Connors! The Connors are proud owners of this award-winning kitchen, and much of the design inspiration came from Julie Connors herself.

When Julie explained her vision to Peter Salerno and his team, it sprang to life and quickly became the nationally renowned kitchen you see in this article’s photos.

The official Peter Salerno Inc. blog recently had the pleasure of speaking at length to Julie Connors about her new, award-winning design, her design influences, her experience working with Peter Salerno Inc. – and most importantly, how she likes her kitchen!

Interview: Julie Connors

Peter Salerno Blog: What were you looking for in your new kitchen?

Julie Connors: It was important for me to make it larger and open it up to the rest of the house. Before having a French colonial, every room was off a hallway so there wasn’t any flow. So the idea was to open it all up, create a better space for guests.

PSB: Were there specific design elements you had in mind?

JC: I knew exactly what I wanted, but we needed a designer who could fulfill my ideas. We definitely wanted to play and tweak my ideas – ultimately I knew I wanted something special that hadn’t been done before. I wanted a French old-world feel with a modern touch, and I feel like we did something new and unique. When I do something, I like to do it 150%, and I’m happy with how it came out!

PSB: Why did you decide on working with Peter Salerno Inc.?

JC: I knew that Peter was known for unique work. It takes a certain kind of personality to do something unique and not try to stick to the “old mold” that works for everybody. I’ve seen some of Peter’s work and know he can do that, and I knew he was willing to take on that challenge.

There are very unique elements like the tin refrigerator cover, and he had the confidence in his ability to get the job done right and get it delivered. There were never any questions as to what I was going to get. He was very clear to me, there was no guessing involved.

PSB: Your kitchen is the first in the US with a TopBrewer installed. How is that?

JC: It’s lived up to its expectations. It’s a daily use item; it’s become a family beverage station. The kids use it to put seltzer in things, you can get milk, or tea. It’s great. Nobody’s ever installed it before, and we ended up having people from California here installing it, it was crazy. It was definitely worth it.

The TopBrewer faucet is centered between 2 refrigerators as a focal point in the kitchen.

PSB: What are your favorite parts of your new kitchen?

JC: The island is great, for sure. That’s always the gathering spot. I can’t tell you how much everyone’s always gathering at the island, it’s a big plus. The TopBrewer is a huge hit, and my husband is now its biggest fan. He’s always bragging about his wonderful coffee maker.

I also love the CornuFe 110, it’s one of the first few installed in the county in its color (French Blue). I love the way it looks and functions.

PSB: How does it feel to have an award-winning kitchen in your home?

JC: It feels great! I love to use it every day. At the end of all this, it’s an amazing kitchen. I love every part of it, it’s “all me”. When I do have a chance to be home, it’s nice to be in the kitchen, and to want to be in the kitchen. It’s definitely made for entertaining as well.

I got exactly what I wanted as far as a unique, open space. It’s more comfortable to gather in the kitchen, and it flows well into the great room.
