According to Heather Corcoran at Elle Decor, Kalamazoo’s Artisan Fire pizza oven has become the latest must-have addition to outdoor kitchens, with famous tastemakers singing its praises. “The freshest Neapolitan pizza in the world, all crispy crust and blistered cheese, is now de rigeur in your own backyard,” Heather says. “Perfect pies in just three minutes - even Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan.”
Gwyneth’s beautiful Hamptons home features a full outdoor kitchen in addition to her Kalamazoo pizza oven - and she’s not alone in maximizing the cooking and entertaining potential of her backyard. “Nearly half of architecture firms polled told the 2017 AIA home-design trends survey that the latest wave in kitchen design is happening outdoors,” Heather notes.
