How Le Creuset Nails the Art of Colorful Cookware

  How Le Creuset Nails the Art of Colorful Cookware There’s a scene in the movie Julie & Julia in which Meryl Streep, playing the inimitable Julia Child, is bustling around her Paris kitchen. She dips a spoon into a fiery red-orange casserole dish for a quick taste, decides to add a dash of salt, and moves on to tend to a boiling pot of cannelloni. Cut to another scene where Amy Adams, playing food blogger Julie Powell, is laboring over a pot of beef bourguignon in her New York City apartment. Set decades apart, the two scenes share one unmistakable visual detail—a vibrantly colored Le Creuset on the stove.
