    The Cotton White Le Creuset inspires me to Cook Simple and Pure!
    Getting back to the essentials of nutrition with Simple Pure meals to feed my family of six. Health and Nutrition are very important to our family and using the quality of a vessel Like the Cotton White Le Creuset Cookware and Stoneware set would be amazing to use.

  14. Alison Yakel

    I do enjoy cooking and baking, find it relaxes me, plus my hubby seems to enjoy my cooking (most of the time). With this, I can actually be more creative, plus try out my new cookbook I just got, may be useful to have these new items.

  15. Gabriele

    As a recently graduated product design student (who’s never cooked more than scrambled eggs) the Le Creuset Cotton range would be the perfect start and inspiration to my new working life – alongside some badly needed cooking lessons! What better way than to start with best – with it’s timeless aesthetic the Le Creuset Cotton range will never need replacing!

  16. Boipelo Sebesho

    The purity of cotton promises a good outcome. Makes one feel free to experiment with confidence. Cheers to a tasty meal.

  17. Elsie Wentzel

    Hope you get to read all the great entries. Well the cotton range of Lecreuset makes me remember my grandmother because of her white hair. I started to bake and cook when I was one year old with my grandmother. I stopped for a while now since I found out of all my allergies (too much to mention). Seeing these beautiful cotton white pots inspires me to go back to my passion, cooking and baking with love. It will remind me of the good times I spent in my grandmother’s kitchen and try new allergy free recipes. White makes me think of a clean slate to start over a new journey.

  18. reshmi dewa

    the new cotton range inspires me to cook the indian classics like breyani and butter chicken and kheer for desert. the white of the cotton is so classic and clean and i would love to cook in la creuset…..

  19. Warren Zwick

    Man I feel for the person who has to read all these entries.

    I’m not going to go on about the cotton range – its pointless, pretty but pointless.
    Whether my dish is black or white is irrelevant, its the quality of the cookware that matters.
    Thats what Le Creuset inspires; it makes you want to be better in the kitchen, to try harder, experiment with new tastes and to take on that dish you didnt think you could do.
    When you have quality tools on your side your imagination is the only limitation

  20. Linda van Zyl

    Imagine living on a mountain surrounded by giant trees and the call of an fork-tailed drongo eagle pair. You find a special kind of quiet when you are tucked away in a forest. Strangely, all city noise is reduced and the soft bird calls and insects buzz stands out. Look north and you are dwarfed by the mighty Hottentots Holland mountain range. Look south and the deep blue sea winks with it’s frothy little waves. To the west lies a valley covered with award winning vinyards. Row upon row of juicy grapes forms a spectacular backdrop to my backyard. Minimilastic architecture captures natures’ masterpiece. Every modern window is a set portrait of Mother nature. The clean sweeping lines of white and stainless steel kitchen yearns for the perfect accesories. Something solid and earthy, something modern and quirky. Something stylish and elegant, in a natural color. Imagine a set of Le Creuset Cotton kitchenware to finish my perfect picture. I sure can.

  21. Yvonne Sydow

    I love this colour, I keep on looking at pictures in magazines of it and thinking firstly how amazing it would look on display in my dark kitchen, it would brighten it up completely. Secondly the delicious casseroles for my growing family slow cooked for hours in the oven would be a real winter treat, can you imagine the contrast of the lovely white with a rich dark stew inside full of veggies and oxtail……I’m getting hungry now.

  22. Duduzile Lunga

    The new le creuset cotton range is simply ecletic. It draws its design from a variety of sources and inspires me to create not only delectable food but also to explore cuisine from different corners of the world. Coupling the new cotton range with a wide variety of ingredients ensures the creation of the most scrumptious meals. I picture my family re-enacting a scene from Oliver Twist awestruck and amazed they break out in song “Food Glorious Food!!!” Thanks to my new cotton range my meals are something to look forward to as the cooking is no longer a chore but artistry in motion!

  23. The Le Creuset Cotton range inspires me to thoughts of my new beginning: The 24th of May when I will walk down the aisle in my cotton-white dress, towards the man of my dreams. A love of pristine beauty, purity of the heart and the bright excitement of making a new home filled with delicious food, family and joy. Cotton promises stability, the weaving of one step with another, the crisp white of a new morning, a new home and a love to last a lifetime.

  24. Tamlyn Roman

    Being in the kitchen is a feast for all five senses and this range makes that feast look so so much better! I have always followed the adage that you shouldn’t try to fix what isn’t broken but this is the exception. Le Creuset products are timeless and the original “flame” will never be outdated but this range is a fresh and clean and will surely become a classic..classic cotton!

  25. Candice

    Splashes of colour go well with these dishes, who can deny they fulfill all your wishes. From puddings to bakes or even tiny cakes, there really isn’t anything a Le Creuset dish can’t make. Snowflakes of flour and soft peaks of egg, Cotton is the only colour that stays in my head.
