Designing a kitchen fit for a Chef
As an ambassador of goodwill through food, Chef Andrew Zimmern is an Emmy and four-time James Beard Award winner who has become an admired, internationally recognized, and friendly face to appear on TV and social media. When we received word that Chef Zimmern was remodeling a home here in Minnesota and wanted to hear more about our Puustelli kitchens, we naturally couldn’t wait to tell him all about it.
Chef Zimmern had done his own fair share of homework: he was already familiar with our sustainable production methods, our Nordic roots, and he really liked our eco-friendly, timeless, and modern cabinetry style.
Over the next several months, we collaborated with Chef Zimmern’s team of architects and designers from Streeter Homes to complete the kitchen design and installation. With every design aspect finalized with the input of Chef Zimmern himself, the end result is a kitchen fit for a Chef – pun intended.
