My parents had a set of burnt orange pots and pans which they displayed in our kitchen. As a child, I had no idea what Le Creuset was and often wondered why they had colored pots instead of metal ones like all our friends and neighbors. Instead of being embarrassed, I should have known that my dad always had the best of the best.
Fast forward, 20+ years and all those years of going outlet shopping for kitchenware in New Hope and Flemington started making sense. I bought my sister the red heart shaped Le Creuset pot. As a non-cook, I don’t have any but try to convince my husband that we need to display one on our stove. Its been tough to narrow down what color to get. Every time a new color is unveiled, I think this is it.
Celebrating the 80th anniversary of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Le Creuset and Walt Disney Motion Picture Studios have collaborated on an apple cocotte reminiscent of the film’s iconic poisoned apple. But not to worry – their cocotte will tempt you with its whimsical apple shape and careful artistic details. Set includes a commemorative charm and tea.
Le Creuset is offering two limited-edition sets on LeCreuset.com and Saks.com. One features a giant cast iron apple cocotte with a Snow White charm and tea towel for $230. The other comes with the same tea towel and charm and a smaller, more affordable stoneware cocotte for $55.
And for all you serious Snow White fans, Saks’ annual holiday windows will feature the famous fairytale. The store will also have other brand partnerships and special Disney-themed breakfasts at Café SFA. Snow White, the prince, and Dopey will make special guest appearances from Saturday, November 25 through Sunday, December 31.
I’m pretty sure this apple will increase the home cooked meals my family receives. This is definitely going on my Chanukah list.
