Japanese style is having something of a moment in the interiors world. And Le Creuset is jumping on board with its SS20 campaign, Zen Kitchen.
Inspired by Japanese culture, Zen Kitchen transports you to the land of the rising sun, from the comfort of your own kitchen. The range is a curated collection of products designed to help you cook simple yet authentic Japanese dishes. With a combination of well-loved Le Creuset essentials and an array of exciting new additions, and some delicious recipe inspiration, extending your culinary repertoire has never been easier.
With Japanese-inspired dishes as delicious and healthy as they are aesthetically pleasing, Zen Kitchen provides a fresh look on how Japanese culture can influence both interiors and lifestyle.
At a time when peace, calm and wellbeing in the home is valued as a welcome juxtaposition to the chaos of modern life, the new palette is inspired by Japan’s love for neutral shades and natural elements.
A colour collective comprising new serene Meringue, tranquil Coastal Blue, calming Flint and a pop of vibrant Cerise, Zen Kitchen encourages energy in harmony with elegance and wellbeing, evoking scenes of delicate cherry blossoms, stepping-stones in Zen Gardens, and vast blue waters lit by the striking rising sun.
New for Zen Kitchen, and ideal for stir fries packed with flavour, is a 3-ply Stainless Steel Wok complete with glass lid (pictured below).
Available in classic Cerise and Flint, as well as Meringue and Shell Pink, the new Cast Iron Rice Pot and Cocotte Every (below right) are ideal for creating perfectly cooked, fluffy rice, as well as soups and casseroles.
For a delicate matcha brew, the new Stoneware Teapot with Stainless Steel infuser is set to become an everyday staple, while the new Stoneware Noodle Bowl 1L (below) and Stoneware Rice Bowl 600ml (above, bottom right) are designed with rich ramen and flavoursome rice bowls in mind.
Meanwhile, to help you hero the flavours and methods of the East, authentic recipes and inspiration are brought to you online this season by Tim Anderson, Winner of Masterchef 2011, and Yuki Gomi, renowned Japanese chef and food writer.
Choose from fresh Primavera Fried Rice, in the 3-ply Stainless Steel Wok with glass lid, Salmon in Nan Ban Sauce cooked in the Signature Cast Iron Shallow Casserole, to Pork, Tofu & Hijiki Patties served on a Stoneware Dinner Plate, there is inspiration for every type of cook.
The Zen Kitchen range and recipes are found online at lecreuset.co.uk.
