If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that last week I hosted a dinner party with Le Creuset. This was a huge honor as I love to entertain and am such a massive, massive fan of the brand. The brand has been around for over 90 years and their cookware (especially their enameled cast iron) is hands down, the best. Also, as a lover of all things design, their color assortment is AMAZING. I love the shop by color feature; and I love that their cookware comes in SO MANY (24!) beautiful colors!
Le Creuset most recently launched a few new colors (including merengue and berry) and I was just smitten by the berry in particular. It’s SO ME. It’s perfectly fun and feminine (but not too too girly) and complements my apartment decor perfectly. We filmed a little video (embedded below) and had the absolute best time. I should add that the cookware is so pretty that (despite being a neat freak), I leave it out on my stove because I just love the color so much.
Particularly, I love the mini cocottes… they’re perfect for making anything from individual casseroles to mac & cheese to hot brownie sundaes!
My Dinner Party with Le Creuset!
I love this brand’s commitment to quality. Each piece of Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron is cast individually in sand molds and then hand inspected by French artisans. They’re so durable; designed to be used in the oven or on the stove and then (because they’re so beautiful and will enhance rather than detract from your table scape!), transitioned to the table for serving!
The enamel is chip-resistant and gorgeous, and the pieces have superior heat retention capabilities that keep foods warm, moist, and tender for longer! There is nothing better if you ask me.
- Roast Chicken (I will be honest, I bought two pre-cooked chickens and heated them up).
- Individual mac & cheese, served in Le Creuset’s mini cocottes. I used this recipe and it turned out AMAZING.
- Mashed Potatoes
- Brussels Sprouts
- Grilled Asparagus
- A big green salad to help counteract all that cheese!
