Tim Love's Home Kitchen

Born-and-bred Texas chef Tim Love owns six restaurants in Texas (and one in Tennessee) and has become famous for his Western-style cooking. What many fans don’t know is that he is also a kitchen designer on the side. Tim’s kitchen includes a massive 12-burner range and two convection ovens. He likes an industrial look, and he chose a sheet-metal backsplash. Read on to explore the details.

Eat-In Kitchen

Tim and his family eat most of their meals right in this kitchen nook.

 

Marble Counters

Some people shy away from Carrara marble because it's prone to staining, but Tim likes the character that comes with wear and tear. "The more it gets used, the more I like it," he says.

 

 

Trough Sink

Tim often hosts cooking classes for friends; he installed a narrow trough sink fitted with a disposal in the island so everyone can just push their scraps in. During parties, he fills the basin with ice and bottles of champagne.

 

Custom Mixer

For the 10th anniversary of Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, one of Tim’s Fort Worth restaurants, KitchenAid gave him a custom horsehide-printed commercial mixer.

 

Meat Slicer

Because Tim loves charcuterie, his wife, Emilie, got him this Berkel pro-grade slicer for Christmas one year. "Doesn’t everyone get their husband a meat slicer?" she jokes.

 

Kitchen Cart

Tim kept losing his keys, wallet and sunglasses around the house, so Emilie brought in this cart to serve as a catchall for the family's essentials.
