It’s no secret that the entire Camille Styles team is dependent on the house cooking. Don’t get me wrong, we like to walk restaurants (now that we can!) but nothing feels more like a home-cooked meal than a meal that you have personally put time, love and strength into. We see cooking as an artistic expression, a work of love, an exploratory moment when time stands still, okay, so I’m taking it a bit, but you have the gist. We really enjoy trying out new recipes, mixing unexpected ingredients and playing with food, especially when we get to share kitchen experiments with friends and family. This means that we are always looking for the best pots and pans to make the experience even better.
So who do we turn to for expert kitchen product recommendations? Chefs and food, of course. They are savvy connoisseurs, sensory scientists we want, who like to dive into the culinary rabbit hole like us.
