Lilac & Cassis Le Creuset

by Erin

I feel like shouting, “It’s alive!” After months of searching for purple versions of Le Creuset products, which I documented on my blog, and finally giving in and purchasing several pieces on eBay, at last the Le Creuset pieces formerly known as “lilac mist” and “aubergine” have been rebranded and released in the states as “lilac” and “cassis.” Why? I have no idea. Perhaps these are more “American” sounding colors? But either way I’m ecstatic. Currently these pieces are exclusive to Sur La Table. Personally I feel that a big dutch oven purchase is in my immediate future.

The British (and also the French) use the word “aubergine” for both the bulbous vegetable and the dark purple color, but in American English “eggplant” is used, so it’s possible the name changes may have been made to appeal to the American consumer who may not connect the dark purple color to “aubergine”.

Anyways, enjoy your cookware 🙂
