    Your Pantry

    We have a small walk-in pantry that is now in its most svelte form as it has been taken over by pantry moths and we have tossed anything not in glass. (They eat through plastic as an hors d'oeuvre.)

  4. Have you called Le Creuset customer service? I believe your ware is now considered "heritage", but they may have replacement stock and procedure. Also, are there used kitchenware shops in your area? We have a fabulous one (Cookin') that has piles of le Creuset, tops and bottoms, but she doesn't ship. Check out your yellow pages.
  5. I confess that I flunked "seasoning 1". I have meticulously followed manufacturers' instructions only to wind up with an unseasoned pan. BUT most all of my cast iron pans and one Dutch oven, my calphlon dedicated to deep frying and several woks have become perfectly seasoned. Because, I believe, they are used consistently with oils and never scoured clean. The Dutch oven is one I use for bread and which I spray with cooking spray each use and only rinse out with water.

    Raw tomato sauce on hot spaghetti. This is a recipe I "stole" 20 years ago from Flea Street Cafe in Menlo Park. Tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, mint, balsamic, sherry wine vinegar, soy sauce, red pepper flakes. A hot weather standard in tomato season.
