My desire for Le Creuset to release their line of pink and lavender pieces in America is a well known and much complained about topic of cookware conversation. I simply can’t understand why they would keep such lovely colors overseas. Europe, Asia, and South Africa are so lucky. Anyway, I only have two eBay searches that are emailed to me every single morning and they involve pink (otherwise known as “antique rose“) and lavender Le Creuset products.
Originally I desperately wanted a pink dutch oven but after seeing how gorgeous the purple oven was online I decided that I would splurge on it first. So when I found out last week that I got the new job that I wanted so desperately I congratulated myself with a naughty Le Creuset splurge. I ordered a 3.5 quart lavender dutch oven and two precious ramekins shaped like a heart and a flower respectively from a really excellent eBay seller. I would highly recommend using her if you’re in the market for some rare Le Creuset colors.
This is just the beginning though. My new goal is to have an entire collection of pink and lavender pieces. I think I’m going to need a bigger kitchen, or at the very least more shelf space. Anyway, what should I cook in this gorgeous pot first? Risotto? Soup? Some mulled wine perhaps?
PS: Just an FYI that this color is actually branded as “Lilac Mist” by Le Creuset.
