The Thursday Three – les cocottes


Actually five today
These gorgeous little Le Creuset style lidded iron dishes came from the vide-grenier up the road at Alet-les-Bains.
Briefly home to Nostradamus and to a local boy who grew up to be chef to the last Tsar Nicholas (of all the Russias) then came home and built a very beautiful house.
Alet has some great architecture including a 9thc abbey .
I can see these little gems bubbling with pommes dauphinoise

    Another wonderful visit! Should you follow the arrow by the water fountain this is what you’d find…a unique and little known treat for your visitors:

    What a beautiful place! And Staub, I prefer it to Le Creuset, just because I have never liked those colors. I like the idea of the colors but the reality somehow always falls short for me. I was thrilled to learn that cast iron works on induction cooktops. Something bubbling in a big iron pot might help make up for the lack of actual fire.
