A Visit to the Le Creuset Factory

I’m not much of a cook or a foodie, but I have a peculiar fascination with cast iron cookware. Both the craft of forging these crude yet elegant tools and the way that they get more beautiful with age and repeated use are sources of wonder to me. They’re the exact inverse of digital hardware, which starts decaying the moment you break it out of its box.

Chef David Lebovitz had a chance to visit the French factory where the storied le Creuset line of cast iron cookware is made. In this blog post, he follows the whole manufacturing process, from hot metal to color enameling. It’s a completely engrossing read if you’re fascinated by craft.
