  1. we received a round dutch oven and rectangular pan as wedding gifts - enameled cast iron. They are incredibly durable and distribute heat very evenly. It's a workout cooking with them because they are so heavy.

  2. What a wonderful thing it is to use a family heirloom item! Right now I am making farro, zucchini, tomato risotto in a light blue vintage Le Cruset that was my parent’s. It’s an absolute perfect Dutch oven and I think of them every time I use it.

  3. I guess Fish Eye Pudding would be the perfect dessert after having Star Gazy Pie for dinner.

    1. Admittedly, I had to look up Star Gazy Pie...when I did, it was looking back at me! - ARH

  5. Le Creuset is wonderful stuff, and the idea of heirloom cookware is a welcome notion in our throw away world. I do not agree that Le Creuset is an especially good conductor of heat, but it has enough mass that an attentive cook is fine with it. For those who want heirloom cookware that is truly an exceptional conductor of heat, I suggest scouring places like eBay and Etsy for 3mm tinned copper. If you were ready for Le Creuset prices, old copper is not nearly as pricy as the new pieces. Most new copper is thinner than 3mm and lined with stainless, neither being an attribute I prize. But back to Le Creuset, my "flame" Dutch oven is, indeed, prized. I am excited as braising season approaches.

  6. On a far less elevated level than heirloom Le Creuset, I still constantly use my mother's Revere Ware pots and pans from the 1950s. Manufactured in Rome, NY, they have copper-clad bottoms and two-piece bakelite handles. I love them.

    1. Still use my mother's for a lot of things too. Easier to carry than my Le Creuset and I still like the clean the copper bottoms and see the pans hanging down from the rack.

    2. I use my grandmother’s Revere Ware, as well as some new pieces I received for my wedding. I am grateful to have the items that she actually used to teach how me to cook as a child.

    3. My wife used her Revere Ware for about 40 years. What sidelined them finally was Scanpan.

  7. Fish. Eye. Pudding. Hmmm. Not a promising word-combo.
