Happy Fourth…and Happy Cooking

Greetings all, and a hearty cheer of Happy Fourth of July to all those who celebrate it…and even to those who don’t. After all, it’s still a day and should still be happy if at all possible.

One thing that’s making me happy today is this wonderful Emile Henry Fait Tout on sale at Williams-Sonoma.

Emile Henry Fait Tout In French (and hey, they were America’s allies during the Revolution, so it does tie in), fait tout means quite literally ‘does everything’ and that’s what this charming and practical dish can do for you. Whether you’re baking a casserole, vegetables, or meat, it will get the job done nicely. It can also go from oven to freezer to microwave to tabletop to dishwasher with aplomb. And with a capacity of 4.2 quarts, it will easily feed a family from one dish.
Not wild about the blue color? It also comes in red and yellow (sorry, no white even today). But it is on sale. Normally priced at $128.00, it’s available now from Williams-Sonoma for a mere $49.99! That’s $78.01 off! That makes this Yankee Doodle feel mighty dandy.

It Takes the Cake

Baking a cake from scratch is a great way to impress your friends and family. It’s really not as difficult as it looks at first glance, and there’s nothing like saying ‘I made it myself’ to make people ooh and ah over your creation.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt if you can present it with a proper flourish on a proper cake plate.

Emile Henry 12 I’ve long had a love affair with Emile Henry bakeware, so it stands to reason I love their serving pieces as well for much the same reasons: they’re sturdy, attractive, practical, and come in fun colors. This 12″ cake plate is no exception to the rule.

The exclusive ceradon process Emile Henry employs results in hard-wearing pottery pieces that can go straight from freezer to oven without crazing or cracking. The bright colors bring a smile to nearly any face while showcasing your food to its best advantage. And check out that delightfully whimsical ruffled edge. Your cake will look its best (as will your cookies, cupcakes, or other treats) and your guests will be wowed. What more could you possibly want?

A great deal, you say? Well, you get that, too. This bright, sunflowery yellow color is on a closeout sale at Cooking.com. They normally sell it for $33.95, but it’s now just $16.98 while supplies last. That’s half off!
