Exceptional Emile Henry

Are you familiar with Emile Henry? They are a French company ( but of course!) known for their exceptional cook and bakeware. The company was founded in 1850 by Mssr. Henry (pronounced en-ree) in the province of Burgundy, France  where the clay soil is perfect for making baking dishes that both conduct and retain heat. They make a wide variety of products from casseroles to pie dishes and ramekins to dutch ovens. 

 Several years ago I found this covered dish in a thrift store. It is called a terrine and while I have never made an actual terrine,  I find it is the perfect size to make macaroni and cheese for two, scalloped potatoes, or a small meatloaf.
 I believe I paid $4! 

Then while out thrifting yesterday I found these two baking dishes, one square and one large rectangle. I love the richly colored glazes that Emile Henry uses. Not only are the pieces highly functional going from freezer to oven, they also look gorgeous on the table! I can't wait to serve a lasagna or sweet potato casserole in these.

Each piece is embossed on the bottom with the company's name and signature key in a shield so you know it's authentic.

You can find Emile Henry cookware at finer kitchen stores like Williams Sonoma and Sur La Table - or if you are lucky like me, at a thrift store!

p.s. I was not compensated in any way for this post - I just happen to love their stuff!
