Hearth and Home

Food and fire remain timeless catalysts for bringing people together. Home and hearth historically evoked thoughts of safety, warmth and comfort. In the 21st century, we’re still gathering, if not around an actual fire, certainly in front of the kitchen stove.

kitchen-scene-david-teniers-the-younger-1644After more than 20 years, Art Culinaire’s mission remains “bringing family and friends back to the table.” Cooking and gathering beautifully reflects the medieval, pre-refrigeration necessity of preparing seasonal cuisine and sharing with around the table. Otherwise, food often spoiled. Today, we’re genuinely thrilled to celebrate a newly commissioned range, knowing our clients appreciate the truly good things in life: family, friendships, community…with savory cuisine, of course!

We invite you to participate with the Lacanche community in several ways: be part of our Lacanche ambassador program, sign on to our online Lacanche Owner’s Forum, or by joining the social networking revolution via our Lacanche Fan Club on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more.

Bastille Day!


Bastille Day is right around the corner! Commemorating the beginning of the French Revolution with the storming of the Bastille, Bastille Day or “La Fête Nationale”, on July 14th is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, French national holidays.  If you’re lucky enough to be in Paris for the celebration then watching the Bastille Day Military Parade on the Champs-Elysées is an absolute must.  Dating back to 1880, it is the oldest and largest military parade held in Europe. However, if you aren’t fortunate enough to be soaking up all the fun in Paris, then why not bring some of France home to your own kitchen?  Check out this awesome recipe, courtesy of Huffington Post, for a Frangipane Apple Tart with Apricot Glaze sure to bring a slice of France to you.
