Mr & Mrs Atkinson, Cottingham

In 2002, John and Lorraine invested in their first Mulberry kitchen. Sadly this was lost in last year's dreadful floods. Today, we are happy to unveil their superb replacement kitchen which again is a truly international creation designed around the needs of a really enthusiastic cook. From Germany, banks of Neff ovens ensure flexibility with the dedicated steam oven providing fabulous vegetables and really juicy meats. The matching combi-microwave can be an extra grill or a fourth oven in times of high demand. Note the two versatile warming drawers, marvellous to defrost food, warm plates or keep the output from all of those ovens at a perfect temperature (you can even prove bread, melt chocolate or make yoghurt in these beauties). From America - a massive General Electric fridge freezer and a filtered instant boiling water tap over the French ceramic sink. Holland gave us the unique Atag induction hob which cleverly incorporates a large gas wok burner. The bespoke English painted in-frame furniture feature Italian carved corbels and pilasters all topped in fabulous 60mm thick "Giallo Veneziano" granite from the quarries of Brazil. Yes, we search far and wide to satisfy our discerning clientele.

"We must have liked you or we wouldn't have come back!" said John.
