Le Creuset has forever set the gold standard for high-quality cookware. As far as Dutch ovens, skillets, kettles, casserole dishes and dinnerware go, each and every item in the French kitchen brand’s collection is beyond covetable. For example, their Dutch oven in cherry red is one of the most iconic pieces in the culinary world. In recent years, Le Creuset has seriously expanded their color offerings. For example, in 2018, they debuted an ombré blue-green called mint, clearly because the name Tiffany Blue has already been taken. Some colors they even debut seasonally, like their shimmering pastel Metallic Collection, which launched in spring.
This fall, Le Creuset is giving us another crush-worthy color, and its name alone will make you salivate, whether your taste buds veer sweet or savory: Truffle.
“Grounded in nature's palette of organic and rustic browns, Truffle stems from the rich soil of a farm in Provence, where hearty, comforting dishes always have a place at the table,” the brand said in a press release. “The deep earth tones of Truffle create a rich base for the addition of any color.”
We like to think it pays homage to both the richly delicious cocoa dessert, as well as the soil that French pigs dig into in order to unearth the super rare and ridiculously expensive fungus that infuses all of our favorite foods. Either way, it is a statement making ombré brown hue as timeless as a Chanel quilted bag.
Le Creuset is offering over 20 products in their latest hue, ranging in price from $6 for a teaspoon to $350 for their trademark 5.5 Quart Dutch Oven.
Here are our favorite pieces from the collection:
