The holidays are almost here, and that means our favorite season (where we gather with friends and family, reflect on the things we’re thankful for, and cook up a storm) is about to begin. Making delicious food for our loved ones is one of the most meaningful ways we like to celebrate, but if we’re being honest, some of our servingware isn’t exactly up to the task.
This year, we’re replacing our cracked, rusted, and warped cookware for something a little more special – items from the Le Creuset Noël Collection, which just relaunched for the season with some brand-new items and old favorites.
Le Creuset is known for its high-quality enameled cast iron bakeware and heritage stoneware, and the brand’s Noël Collection has the same quality you know you can expect (it’s one of Ina Garten’s favorites, after all), but with a splash of seasonal whimsy.
This year, Le Creuset rolled out a brand new Snowflake Dutch Oven to celebrate the season of giving. It comes in the brand’s gorgeous evergreen color Artichaut and, like the rest of Le Creuset cast iron cookware, it’s dishwasher safe and can be used with all heat sources from gas to induction.
Another new addition is the Noël Classic Whistling Kettle which comes in a white finish with gold metal accents. It’s perfect for preparing a hot cup of tea or cocoa and lets you know when your water has boiled with a set single-tone whistle.
We also love the brand’s Noël Snowflake Braiser, which comes in Marseille (a soothing blue color), and Matte Cotton, a satin-finish white.
Lidded braisers are a true workhorse in the kitchen. You can make your favorite soups and stews in them, use them to braise and roast meats, or even use them to make your favorite seasonal baked goods (like Martha Stewart’s make-ahead cinnamon rolls).
We always like to have platters of snacks, nuts, cheese, and cookies out when we have company, and there’s no better way to present them to your guests than on this Noël Hostess Tray, which is emblazoned with the words “Joyeux Noel” in a fanciful red script. This stoneware serving tray helps hot foods stay warm, and it’s even broiler and oven safe.
How do you give your hot cocoa (and hot cocoa bombs) the star treatment they deserve? The Noël Mugs help you start every day with a bit of holiday cheer, with swirling Santas, snowmen, Christmas trees, and our favorite, fleet-footed reindeer.
Make your holiday season extra special by upgrading your favorite servingware and mugs with these heirloom-quality holiday items from the Le Creuset Noël Collection, and this will be a year of celebration you’ll never forget.
