Considered as one of the most influential chefs in the U.S. dining scene, Chef Ludo Lefebvre has made his mark by revolutionizing the culinary industry. Having trained under some of France’s top chefs like Alain Passard, Chef Ludo has since created his own culinary style that he describes as “French with an international flavour”.

When Chef Ludo isn’t cooking at his award-winning restaurants, he’s making meals at home in his personal kitchen that’s equipped with Fisher & Paykel appliances. The brand’s induction cooktop with 5 zones is just one of the luxury kitchen appliances that Chef Ludo uses in his personal kitchen.

The induction cooktop’s immediate heat response and consistent temperature control allows you to sear and sauté food with restaurant-quality results all the time. If you’re a fan of steak, Fisher & Paykel induction cooktops are a great way to cook them since they reach high temperatures quickly – to get a beautiful golden sear, cook your steak on a cast iron pan. Best of all, when you’re done cooking, the clean-up process is super simple. The cooktop’s surface stays cool around your cookware, so all you have to do is wipe it down.

Chef Thomas Keller owns the French Laundry, an acclaimed restaurant, among several other restaurants across the U.S. He is the first and only American-born chef that holds several three-star ratings from the Michelin guide.
