Favorite Vessel

December 4, 2006

Cooking, Journal, Lauren

At first I titled this post ‘Favorite Pot’, but I knew you yahoos would make all the obvious jokes, so there – do something funny with ‘vessel’.

Anyway, this my enameled red cast iron dutch oven from Target that I love like a child. It’s so pretty, and makes anything cooked in it appear like I’ve really slaved, y’know?  You can’t dish something out of a dutch oven without thinking, “Boy, this food must have had some work done on it.”  It’s not fast and flashy like a frying pan, or quick-to-boil like a saucepan.  It takes minutes for this thing to heat, and even longer to cool down.  I love it.

Chili, or nectar of the gods?
