A fixture on his resturants around the globle the famous French chef along with designer Pierre Tachon, has re-imagined the classic porcelain cookpot for homecooks, into a stream lined tactile pot to lock in flavours during slow cooking.
The smooth curved pot comes in two sizes, sufficient to feed 2 to 4 people, with each being hand finished by porcelain manufacturer Pillivuyt in the Berry region of France.
Surprisingly simple to use, Ducasse encourages home cooks to get creative, especially with vegetables, like vegetable gratin, although the pot is also perfect for preserving the colours and taste of meat curries and other slow cooked dishes.
