Le Creuset’s newest colour, Shallot, is a trendsetting neutral, perfect for springtime. Peel back a shallot and you discover the most delectable soft shade of flavour. Shallot captures that potent delicacy—a hue so gentle, so refined, it enhances anything it touches with grace. This whisper of colour will charm your kitchen and table with a powerful sense of intimacy.
Named after the allium essential to French cuisine, Shallot hovers between the palest purple and pink with a light whisper of lavender and grey. Shallot’s chameleon-like undertones offer just a hint of warmth, bringing a sense of calm confidence that can work as a sophisticated accent or as a refined alternative to more vibrant hues. The modern, nuanced colour can’t be put in a box, instead bringing soft flexibility to a wide range of kitchens and styles.
Inspiration behind the colour
Part of the allium family, the shallot became the darling of French cuisine. Smaller than most onion varieties, the shallot offers a more subtle flavour. The shallot’s beautiful colour is as nuanced and varied as its taste, making it the perfect naming inspiration for our newest, softest neutral.
Discover Shallot in a selection of Enamelled Cast Iron cookware and oven-to-table Stoneware pieces from 1st September 2023. The colour will be sold at Le Creuset boutique stores nationwide and online at www.lecreuset.co.za.
