For the Birds—Indeed

The holiday weekend did allow for some much-needed outdoor time, and this spring's crop of baby birds was joyously in evidence. Fledglings were hop-flying through the hedges, their nervous parents tweeting and keeping a close eye. These birds, part of the 'Dolce Stil Novo' cooking collection designed by Guido Canali, are quite fixed in place, dipping their metal bills into a new type of burner that uses energy-efficient fuel-injection technology [note the lack of little holes found on typical gas burners]. The pan-supports come in motifs other than avian: butterflies, fruits, and flora designs are also offered.
