French cookware company Le Creuset has arrived in the GTA, bringing its internationally renowned collection of cast-iron products to eager Toronto-area cooks.
The iconic culinary brand opened a Toronto flagship store in Sherway Gardens in August. It was the second Canadian store for Le Creuset, the first having opened in Calgary in 2010. The company has since opened a third location in Quebec as it continues to expand its presence across the country.
Le Creuset is well known for its colourful collection of cast iron cookware, including French ovens, skillets, saucepans, roasters and more, available in such bold colours as ‘Flame’ orange, ‘Cherry’ red, ‘Dijon’ yellow and ‘Caribbean’ blue.
The stores also carry a wide range of other cookware, such as stainless steel pots and pans, stoneware dishes, hot-forged fry pans and various culinary utensils and accessories.
Founded in 1925 in France, the brand has certainly made a name for itself among culinary fans worldwide. Although the products are pricey, they get rave reviews the vast majority of customers.
Le Creuset products are also available at certain other Toronto retailers, such as The Bay, William Ashley and Nella Cutlery.
The new location at Sherway Gardens, however, aims to give shoppers a unique experience they won’t find at these other retailers. It will host regular demonstrations by local chefs and book tours with popular authors, among other in-store events.
Bon appétit, shoppers!
