Le Creuset Debuts Olive Branch Collection

Le Creuset is bringing peace and serenity to the table this spring with the debut of its latest line. Dubbed Olive Branch, the new pieces are embossed with an image of an olive branch and were created with the sun-drenched fields of Provence, France, in mind.

The products are made with dense stoneware, which blocks moisture absorption to prevent cracking, crazing and rippling, the company said, as well as an impermeable exterior enamel that is designed to resist stains.

The collection currently includes a 2 1/4-quart saucier, 4-quart heritage rectangular casserole, multi bowl and oval platter. Suggested retail prices range from $60 for the multi bowl to $250 for the saucier.
