In this episode of Incredible Kitchens, House Beautiful’s Market Director Carisha Swanson jets to Los Angeles to check out chef Ludo Lefebvre’s newly renovated, Marie Flanigan-designed kitchen—as well as his family’s brand new backyard party pad, complete with an outdoor kitchen, pool and hot tub, and fire pit.

Outfitted with professional-grade Fisher & Paykel appliances, chef Ludo’s tricked-out kitchen is anchored by a massive 48” Professional Hybrid Range, which sports both induction and gas cooktops as well as two convection ovens, and has a touchscreen that offers guidance throughout the cooking process. A concealed Column Refrigerator and Column Freezer wall is complemented by a similarly-sized pantry system, all smartly designed to maximize the storage of deep pull-out drawers.

The outdoor kitchen rivals its indoor partner, and a 48” DCS Series 9 Grill is the centerpiece, designed to utilize a dizzying number of techniques, like smoking, baking, and even rotisserie. An enormous Griddle and super-sized Power Burner means cooking for a crowd is easy, and Refrigerator Drawers complete the space, cutting out the need to return indoors for supplies.

If this set-up doesn’t make you want to get in the kitchen every day—even when you cook for a living—what would?
