Wolf makes the best kitchen kit. I truly believe this. I’ve been making chocolate truffles for years and never has it been easier than on my electric hob. I am no longer prey to the risk of chocolate burning and can make hundreds every weekend if I want. Making custard is a total delight rather than the normal, slightly hair-raising experience. My Sub-Zero crisper keeps fruits and vegetables fresh for about a week longer than in my old fridge. It’s hugely impressive and also incredibly beautiful. My Sub-Zero freezer allows me to see exactly what I’ve got stored away so that I can always whip something out if I suddenly have people coming over. The ice-machine is made for throwing parties...we can’t wait to have our first one. The new Wolf showroom is not only dead slinky but provides an informal, cosy place to cook for people using Wolf’s incredibly sexy appliances. There is no showroom that I would rather cook in.
