I love a good one-pot meal cooked in my dutch oven. My son was helping me in the kitchen and I asked him to get out the dutch oven. He looked at me curiously and said like only a nine year old boy can "Huh?".
Simply defined, a dutch oven is a heavy cooking pot (normally enameled cast iron) with a lid that can go from stove top to oven. I have a Le Creuset dutch oven in Cerise - - described as a "soulful red" by the iconic French cookware manufacturer. It is well seasoned after seven years of use and will continue to get better with age. If I could use it everyday, I would. Not only is it functional and beautifully crafted, but for me it symbolizes connection and family gatherings. When my 82 year old Mother, a fabulous home cook, pulls out her Le Creuset dutch oven, I can almost smell Sunday dinner - beef bourguignon, roasted tomato sauce, chili, coq au vin, risotto. What's in your pot?
