Mighty Spice Kitchen puts the new Le Creuset World Cuisine Range through its paces and pairs each piece with some of our favourite recipes.
We have tried and tested the new World Cuisine range from Le Creuset to give you tips and suggestions to get the most out of the outstanding cookware range.
The World Cuisine collection features 8 new pieces from some of the most popular world cuisines, including Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Spanish and Moroccan. Each is available in cast iron cookware and oven-to-table Stoneware. The finish is outstanding and they hold their heat beautifully. We predict this will be a massive hit with the cooking community.
They come in at a high price point, but like everything Le Creuset put their name to, these are all investment pieces that are built to last. They have many more uses than their country specific title so you can really play around with them and get creative.

A fantastic balti dish with handles that is similar to the North Indian Karahi pan. It has a great weight and comes in two sizes. This pan is perfect for cranking up the heat to brown your onions and meat, before reducing the heat to low to cook slowly for a wonderful finished dish.
