It’s not just the leaves that are changing color. Enameled cast iron originators Le Creuset just revealed a brand new fall shade for their high quality French cookware: the seasonally-appropriate Truffle. To be clear, the inspiration here isn’t the wildly expensive pig-snuffed-out fungus, but instead the decadent cocoa confection (apparently someone at Le Creuset has a sweet tooth). The rich chocolate hue definitely gives off strong autumnal vibes, though it works just as well in winter, spring, and summer.
