Classical Gas is actually the title of an instrumental recording by Mason Williams. It’s a masterpiece, but I’m using this phrase in reference to the time-honored tradition of cooking gourmet meals with gas burners. Mrs. Chabernet has the very desirable Wolf appliance for her home cooking. Many a miraculous meal has been prepared on this six-burner puppy.
Sure, it was pricey but the results are amazing. Plus, gas was deemed to be more energy efficient and less expensive than electric. Now the tide has turned and gas appliances are considered problematic. I’m not sure if the data supports this argument and it remains to be seen what professionals will use in their own kitchens.
I recently learned that chef Bobby Flay has a Wolf gas range in his vacation home in Saratoga New York.
I doubt people will be remodeling kitchens simply to eliminate gas, but Avocado-green appliances were ripped out before the end of their usefulness. What do you think?
