This $60 mini cocotte is the secret behind Kate Hudson's most delicious home-cooked recipes

The full-time actress / part-time kitchen guru shared a delicious new recipe – but we're most distracted by photogenic cookware

Kate Hudson has established herself as one of Hollywood's most influential stars, but her talents go beyond the silver screen. 

The actress, who lives in her childhood Pacific Palisades home, is not shy of showcasing her culinary talents – most famously in the shape of her personally developed smoothie supplements that are a staple of her kitchen. Sometimes, however, Kate also treats her followers to some baked goods, including mini peach pies (as seen below). And, while we're inevitably experiencing a craving for these sweet treats, we're even more hungry for the mini cocottes (small, ceramic or cast iron cooking pots) that, we confess, have stolen the show. 

The cocottes in question come from Staub, the premium French cookware brand known for some of the best Dutch Ovens and baking dishes on the market. They're perfect for small-serving desserts, such as Kate's peach pies, but they're just as handy in the savory department, too. 

Kate has opted for the Basil colorway, and, unfortunately, they're out of stock over on Wayfair. However, a beautiful dark blue or cherry red alternative is currently available – and we think they look just as striking as her green pieces.

Where do we begin with this cocotte set? We love how these timeless color options are an asset to any countertop while serving as versatile cookware that can withstand temperatures up to 572℉.

As mentioned, Kate uses her Staub cocottes to cook up peach delights, but we'd say they're equally perfect for storing salt and pepper atop a rustic dining table or even preserving candy if living with kids. 

Their small 5in diameter also means they're perfect for preparing and serving smaller portions when cooking for one person – ideal for cherry tomato and cheese clafoutis and truffled eggs with mushrooms, a personal favorite of ours. 

It's no secret that we're already fans of pretty much everything in Kate Hudson's kitchen – from her emerging cabinet color trend to her patterned tiles – both of which make the space her 'favorite room' in her house. Ceramics, colors, and tiles aside, however, we also think her window treatment (as seen above) is worth an honorable mention. 

Stand-out features include the quaint cafe-style curtain and the transparent jars that look to hold display spices within easy reach of the oven. We've also found some Kate-inspired jars on Amazon below.

This trio of glasses is perfect for storing items like herbs, oats, coffee, or spices, as its air-tight lid ensures these goods are fresher for longer. We expect they'll look just as good on our window as they do on Kate's.
