I promised to tell you about my birthday present in a previous post. No, I didn't get typical girly things like jewellery, perfume or a new pair of shoes. Instead I got another beautiful new pan! I am such a sucker for high-quality kitchenware such as Mauviel's copper pans (more on those later) and of course, Le Creuset.
My present: a gorgeous grill in aubergine!
The brand originated in the northern French town of Fresnoy-Le-Grand in 1925, and today it continues to export its beautiful cookware to more than sixty countries worldwide.
My cake pan. Have also used it for terrines.
Not only is just about everything from Le Creuset stunning (they even make mugs and kitchen utensils!) but their items are sturdy, reliable and a pleasure to use. The cast iron pans have the ability to retain heat and keep food cold. Perfect for cookingandserving!
Two of my other Le Creuset pans.
My new, gorgeous aubergine grill will be my fourth Le Creuset pan. I have yet to use it, but just looking at it is a treat. Lifting it, is another story! A good steak, yes. That's what I'll make in this beauty first!
