We talked extensively about renovations in Part One. More specifically, what do you think are the most important aspects of a kitchen space?
Number one: a kitchen needs to be practical. Having a good flow from the oven and fridge is important.

How long have you lived with ILVE? Having lived with them, what sets ILVE products apart from others?
We’ve lived with ILVE for about two months now. We absolutely love the 900 Wide Oven [Model featured is the HP95CDT Cooktop; 900 STC Oven], which allows enough room to cook for my massive family! I also love the flush mount gas cooktop – so sleek!

Do you have a favourite recipe to make in your oven?
After living without an oven for six months prior to this renovation, I just can’t get enough of the classic roast dinner – especially roast beetroot!

Who would you most want to have over for dinner and why?
Mick Fanning. Before The Block we travelled around South America. In Brazil, we ran into Mick Fanning and he ended up making us dinner in his holiday apartment! We’d love to return the favour.
