My Le Creuset Obsessions Just in Time for Valentine's Day

(Affiliate Links)

I know that I have mentioned this before, but I have had a French cookware and bakeware obsession since I can remember. When I got my first apartment, after moving out of our family home, I saved up enough money to purchase a full Le Creuset set on sale from Macy's, and since that time my obsession grew to include Staub, Mauviel and Emile Henry. There are two specialty pieces of Le Creuset cookware that I have wanted, but have resisted buying, as long as I can remember.

The first one is the Le Creuset Pâté Terrine (shown above), and I neither make pâté, nor do I often eat it. However, it is perfect for making any sort of terrine, meatloaf, certain breads and even custards. It is undoubtedly a frivolous purchase, because I really don't need it, but I would covet it, and use it. I remember first seeing one when I was a teenager when I went to Williams Sonoma with my mom. Something about this beautiful vessel resonated with me, and I actually had to go pick it up and give it a closer look. Ever since then, I have always looked at them whenever I see them, and the longing to own one has never abated.

My other obsession is the Le Creuset Heart Cocotte that I posted last year. I would frequently look at my post, and nearly purchased the pink version, but didn't. As luck would have it, when I finally decided to buy it everyone was sold out, and since that is a seasonal item, I knew that I would have to wait until Valentine's Day promotions for 2023 began. Now here we are, and they are only offering them in Cerise and Black. Normally, I would forget about this lovely little pot, but one of my closest friends has one, and loves it, and therefore I am reminded of it often.

Overall Assessment: Will I cave and buy either one of these this year? I don't know, but free shipping from Nordstrom, plus triple points, and some Nordstrom Notes to cash in could sway my decision! Is there anything that you have wanted, but have resisted purchasing for many years because you really don't need it?

Le Creuset Pâté Terrine $225.00 (1.5 qt.) from Le Creuset, Williams Sonoma, and Nordstrom.

Le Creuset Heart Cocotte $220.00 (2 qt.) from Le Creuset, Williams Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's (Affiliate Links).

  1. That heart cocette would be wonderful to own. If it's heart shaped I want it!! By the way, Kohl's is closing out their Le Creuset line and it's all on sale for a big discount. It's not red but the prices are excellent.

    1. The Heart Cocotte would be amazing to own! It is so gorgeous in person! I had no idea that Kohl's stocks Le Creuset! Thank you for that tip!
