We may still be in the dog days of summer over here, but my mind (and tastebuds) have already moved on to daydreaming about fall cooking. There is just something about the autumn season that totally connects with my favorite type of foods — they’re hearty, they’re comforting, they’re cozy. I mean, is there anything better than wine braised short ribs or a slow cooker filled with chili on a crisp fall day? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

In line with that ethos, I personally think now is the perfect time to invest in some new cookware that can help you whip up all sorts of comfort food come fall. And where does your mind go when you think of rich stews and soul-warming soups? Le Creuset, of course.

If you consider yourself an avid home cook, chances are you probably own at least one piece from the timeless cookware brand. Well, here’s the best news: Le Creuset is launching a brand new collection to join the ranks of their other quality heirloom-worthy pieces, and it is gorgeous.

Inspired by one of the most omnipresent motifs (and ingredients!) in cooking, the Olive Branch Collection is embossed with a refined olive branch design and is meant to evoke a feeling of peace and serenity. And who doesn’t want a bit more peace and serenity when you’re in the kitchen, right? Check out a complete look at the collection, below — but fair warning: You are about to be tempted with all the fall feels. Embrace it.

This beautiful soup pot marries form and function, with an embossed decorative lid and generous depth that's ideal for cooking up all sorts of hearty fall soups. Sloped sides promote continuous movement, while the 5 1/4-quart capacity provides ample room for simmering. Made from the same enameled cast iron Le Creuset is legendary for, this pot will lock in flavor and heat for a no-fail cook each and every time.

If you have yet to invest in a quality braiser, take it from us: there's no time like the present — and no better brand to spring for than Le Creuset. Braisers boast a unique shape with a lot of surface area at the base, allowing you to render tough cuts of meat while still maintaining a level of juiciness or finishing with a quick pan sauce. Another bonus? They're great for shallow frying, meaning those apple fritters are now totally in reach.

Made from Le Creuset's enameled cast iron, this saucier is ideal for any soups, sauces, or risotto you have on your fall recipe to-do list. The unique shape and quality materials hold low and medium temperatures steady so your recipes can cook and thicken without scorching around the edges or bottom. A slightly rounded bottom allows you to stir and whisk to your heart's content.

Cozy casseroles and fall go hand-in-hand — they're basically like a warm hug or a knit wool sweater in meal form. This sunny marigold yellow casserole dish from Le Creuset's Olive Branch collection is as functional as it is stunning. Made from durable stoneware and vanished with a nonstick glazed surface, it's safe to use in the freezer, oven, microwave, broiler, and dishwasher. Translation: Whether you want to broil fish, mix up a seasonal cobbler, or serve your Thanksgiving stuffing inside, this beauty gets the job done.

If it's just you and a roomie or partner, the aforementioned 4-quart casserole dish may be too large for your needs. Enter: its younger sister, which is sized to a more petite 2.5-quarts, making it perfect for smaller ovens or appetites. The olive branch detail is super subtle when rendered in white and would look classy on your table year-round.

There's something to be said about transforming everyday essentials into something that's also beautiful to look at. If you like to store your olive oil in reach on the countertop — but hate the way the store-bought bottle looks — then this charming cruet is for you. Available in a selection of rich shades (including Nectar, Artichaut, and Marseille), it's the pretty pour your kitchen is waiting for.
