This time last year I loved my new Le Creuset Coastal Blue shallow casserole dish and it has served me well for everything from risottos to shepherds pie. But now there is a new pretender to the throne…Every so often a press release lands on my desk and I think – I want it and I want it now. This is very much the case with the stunning new Nutmeg colour range from Le Creuset. This fabulous soft, earthy shade really captures the natural look which is setting the tone for 2012. And what’s nice about this colour is that it works whatever the season. At this time of year it can be tempting to pack away your casserole dishes with the last of the frosts but remember they’re also great for cooking chilli, curry and fish stews – this cast iron 28cm size is just the thing to feed a crowd. But the rectangular stoneware dish (below) is my particular favourite, as it’s a great piece of multi-purpose tableware for everything from bakes and gratins, to crumbles and of course cobblers.
So what’s your favourite Le Creuset colour?
