My favorite Irish Blessing goes:

“May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

Le Creuset has a new color offered exclusively through Sur La Table that brings to mind the fourth stanza of that blessing: “and rains fall soft upon your fields” – Fennel, a deep Irish green that I am positively doing a jig over.

If there’s ever a kitchen tool I could tell you I use every single day, it would be my Le Creuset French Oven. I use it to make dinner at the end of almost every workday, whether it’s stir fry, soup, Guinness stew, roast beef, or risotto.

The heat conduction is superior, the size and shape perfect for whatever dish I want to throw at it. To say I adore my Le Creuset would be an understatement. To say I heart the fact that it’s dishwasher safe? Understatement of the century.
