I Am Stepher

Happy Birthday to me!

I have been begging for a cast iron Le Creuset french oven for years. My Aunt Amy always used to talk about the gift she would ask my uncle for each year and how they slowly changed from perfume and purses to cookware. I guess this shows that my taste in gifts is changing. I couldn’t be happier about this gift!
In case you are not familiar with this brand of cookware:
La Creuset is really well known for being energy efficient and is used by professional chefs all over the world. From the website:

Once hot, you require only a low to medium heat setting to maintain a good cooking performance. The pan can be removed from the heat leaving the food to cook in its own heat.
This way, the natural flavors of the ingredients are blended to their full potential. The addition of the lid creates a “blanket” of heat with surrounds the food, cooking it evenly. Tough cuts of meat will turn out tender and juicy every time. The hard-wearing enamel coating easily releases food, making clean-up a breeze. No more soaking and scrubbing after those dinner parties!

  1. Stephers, you should try coq au vin in that baby! We were dinner guests recently and the host fixed it and it was amazing. I had never had it before but loved it so much, looked up the recipe. I was going to attempt it but realized you need one of these to prepare it.
