Most of us know about Le Creuset cookware, and many of us have at least one French Oven, or their kitchen accessories — or we know of someone who does. But I recently discovered a line of cookware by Emile Henry that is by far my favorite.
Meet the Flame Top Round Dutch Oven, above, in “rouge”. Ooh la la! Yes, what a cliche but I have no other words. This beauty is functional: it goes from freezer to oven and is lighter than Le Creuset while achieving all their French Ovens do and more. I received an Emile 4.2 quart round in “figue” as a gift and I’m in love.
Emile used to have an Artisan series with a color called “caramel” that is only available now at Williams-Sonoma. This color is appropriately named: it makes me melt like caramel!
