Stoves is rethinking the art of eating and celebrating the joy of not going out. Instead of settling for the ordinary, we’re encouraging people to turn their backs on take-aways, indulge their love of cooking, savour the planning and preparation of their own culinary masterpieces and go the extra mile for their guests and themselves.
From finding the best ingredients to trying challenging recipes and cooking techniques, it’s all about celebrating restaurant-quality cooking in the comfort of home with friends and family – not just staying ‘in’ but ‘staying in in’.
