Cook with colour and style

Having just discovered the Le Creuset range of cookware right here in South Africa, my kitchen is going to be looking very colourful.


The recent Australian Masterchef has inspired me to get a bit more creative in the kitchen, and these day even my toast must have contrasting taste, texture and be garnished so that it looks good!





Since 1925 the skilled craftsmen at Le Creuset have perfected enamelled cast iron cookware. Each and every shape is one of a kind, manufactured from molten steel and cast in a unique mould before being enamelled in one of their gorgeous range of jewel colours.

With attention focused on the TV and the final judging of Masterchef, you've still got a bit of time left to get up to date on what is widely considered to be the best slow-cooking pots in the world. No other procedure yields cookware that so evenly distributes heat, browns and caramelizes food to perfection, and creates a masterpiece at the table.

Cast iron has been used to make cooking pots since Roman times. Even with today’s wide choice of cooking materials, cast iron reigns supreme with its ability to retain and spread heat evenly. When it comes to Le Creuset cast iron, no two pieces are every identical. Every pot is hand forged using two sand moulds, which are broken and recycled after use. After moulding, the pots pass through several finishing processes and are finally enamelled with two coats. An instant heirloom, your grandkids will thank you.
