My adoration for the heavy French cookware started long ago. My Mother always made her delicious casseroles in a large oval piece, the sight of that on the Aga meant a hearty meal was on the way. The first piece I owned was an aqua blue casserole, which is still the most used piece in my collection. A skillet followed, then a few large vintage casseroles, some enamel stock pots, a few griddles later and my shelves are stacked!
My most recent piece is a large oval skillet - with a family of 7 this is perfect for chicken cutlets and meatballs en masse. I have plenty of star shaped ramekins that have as yet gone unused - I'm waiting for just the right chocolate mousse recipe.. With Valentine's Day just a few weeks away - Le Creuset makes the perfect gift to be enjoyed for a lifetime and more.
