Cocottes & Dutch Ovens
For the masters of French cuisine, including such great chefs as Auguste Escoffier, Joël Robuchon, Julia Child and Paul Bocuse, there was one essential piece of cookware: the cocotte. Nearly a century ago, French craftsmen took the humble, cast iron Dutch oven and elevated its design by using an enamel coating on both the interior and exterior of the pot, allowing for more even heat distribution and easier cleaning than a traditional Dutch oven’s traditional raw cast iron.
