Le Creuset is French for “if you love to cook you’ll love using these tools.” Not really, but it’s how many of us feel. Watch The Food Network; many of the host chefs use their exquisitely produced cast iron pots and pans. Many of our talented Charleston chefs use them, too. I don’t claim cooking proficiency, but I use it, and there really is a difference. Not to mention it’s so pretty.
In Charleston we are fortunate to have a larger-than-most Le Creuset presence. Their North American Marketing Office and Culinary Center, L’Atelier Le Creuset, is at Ripley Point. For a long time, their signature store sat cozily at 241 King Street between Starbucks and the Pauline Sisters Media Center.
