|Call Me Cerise
When Le Creuset’s best-selling hue was introduced in France, decades ago, the master enamellers who crafted the now-iconic shade of red, called it Cerise. When the colour was introduced to North America, its name was translated to Cherry. Although a literal translation, it never quite captured the authentic passion of its roots. Le Creuset now pays homage to its origin. Say bonjour to Cerise.
