In 1908, in the heart of Paris, Albert Dupuy ignited the flame of elite cuisine and what would later become known as the La Cornue range. To enable optimum precision, the oven drew upon the city gas lines that were winding their way to homes and street lamps throughout the City of Light. Each range is made by hand and the labor is intensive. Each worker is a specialist, understanding the greater goal. They are not just craftsmen, but companions to each range along its journey from inception to crated final product. They are experts in steel, copper and brass, inspired by great design, working as a team to create an inspired tradition. For over 100 years, La Cornue has continued to build upon Albert’s initial convection innovation. They’ve expanded the design, introduced new styles, but still maintain that it’s all done for one reason, and one reason only: the pleasure of the customer.
