Whenever someone says to me, "You're a guy
who likes cooking and baking?", then I show them this Coquelle and they
are starstruck murmuring "Duuuuuuuuuude, where can I get one?". It is an
older version with wooden handles, hence the damages.

The pumpkin ketchup can also be a great pesto with fusilli.
