During the winter months, I'm constantly making cozy soups, hearty casseroles and comforting one-pot dishes to get me through the cold weather. While there are still plenty of warming recipes that I plan to make (like this Slow-Cooker Cabbage Soup with Sherry or Mediterranean Chicken Skillet), I am more than ready to welcome the spring season into my kitchen. Luckily, I can easily do that with Le Creuset's Flower Cocotte.
This cheery, flower-shaped cocotte is perfect for making stews, braises or any other hearty winter dish. The cocotte also comes with two flower-shaped ramekins, which are perfect for making individual-sized portions. Both the cocotte and the ramekins are made from a durable cast iron, have a lifetime warranty and can be used with any type of stove or oven. And for easy cleanup, you can place the cocotte and ramekins in the dishwasher.
You can choose between two colors including Caribbean (blue) and Soleil (yellow). Either of these bright colors would look beautiful on a table. Plus, you could serve your dinner directly from the cocotte. One reviewer notes: "The flower shape makes it extra special [and] adds a festive feel to [sic] table setting!"
Whichever color you choose, Le Creuset's Flower Cocotte and Ramekins Set will bring a little bit of spring cheer into your kitchen. Now, I just have to cross my fingers and hope the weather follows suit soon!
