Do you love Le Creuset? The classic French brand have been producing beautiful porcelain enamelled pots and stoneware since 1925. Growing up in the States I’d never heard of this brand, but my husband knew it and told me about his design crush on their mugs.
On a seemingly unrelated note, I recently discovered the joy of salted butter on bread and have started to keep butter out so it’s soft and spreadable. I’ve been keeping it on the counter in the wrapping paper on a tiny plate, which is gross, so on the way back from lunch this Saturday I decided to pop into my local kitchenware shop to see if they have any butter dishes.
It turns out that there’s not a lot to choose from in the way of butter dishes. They’re either cow-shaped, or massive ceramic blocks. Tom spotted the Le Creuset section, and I decided to buy him his dream espresso mug and to snap up one of their tiny casserole dishes to use as a butter dish. Le Creuset make a butter dish, but it’s also pretty giant, so I feel pretty good about my hack. My husband thinks I’m weird, but I like it. What do you think?!
