THE VERSATILE CASSEROLE DISH
Cook up hearty meals to keep you warm through the colder months in this classic casserole – it’s practical, made to last and stylish enough to serve from, too, says home editor Jo Caulkett
One of my favourite things about the change in season is the chance to rediscover home cooking – there’s nothing quite like comforting, freshly made fare to bolster your spirits against autumn’s darker days. This casserole dish is the ideal all-rounder: use it to whip up quick stove-top meals – it suits any hob, including induction – or slow-cook tasty stews for tender, melt-in-the-mouth results. Made of sturdy cast iron, it has two handles for easy lifting, while the shallow shape means it fits inside smaller ovens. Like all the best cooking pots, this one doubles as stylish serveware – the smooth, porcelain-enamelled finish comes in classic cream or bold red. For the ultimate warming cold-weather meal, take your dish straight from oven to table and encourage family and friends to help themselves. .
