Cooking with Le Creuset.

Le Creuset Teal

After years of walking past the Le Creuset section of John Lewis and pining after everything, I finally bit the bullet! Mum and Dad gave me a set of 2 small ramekin dishes, perfect for individual portions with a tag reading “hope this helps start the collection.”

With my Christmas money and a mission, I hit the boxing day sales and was not disappointed! A 20cm rectangular pie dish and 24cm round casserole dish later in the brightest teal.

You can see just how small the tiny casserole pots are in comparison to the massive one!

I cannot wait to start cooking lasagne or moussaka in the pie dish, a tiny chicken pie in the little casserole or might try my hand at chocolate souffle. The large casserole is going to be great for stews and pasta bakes. Now that I have started my collection I have set my sights on a few new items – the soup bowls and a utensil jar, in teal obviously!

Any recipe suggestions? Is the Le Creuset cookbook worth purchasing?
