So I was delighted to see this version from Le Creuset. They call it a cassoulet dish, and indeed it is the right size and shape to make traditional cassoulet. But it would also be wonderful for other summer gratins, and even as a salad bowl. And oh, all that yummy Le Creuset color, too!This bowl actually comes in two versions. There is a smaller, 26-ounce stoneware bowl which can be purchased individually:
• Find it: Le Creuset 26-Ounce Cassoulet Bowl in Cherry, $21.95 at Cookware.com
But there is also a larger, 4 1/2 quart enameled cast iron bowl, with a lid, which right now is being offered as a set with four of the stoneware bowls at Williams-Sonoma:
• Find it: Le Creuset Cassoulet Set, $199.95 at Williams-Sonoma
Have you seen this set in person yet? How does it look?
