Last week, I spoke about my passion for the hunt of odd or old cook and bakeware. For the second week in a row, I get to put one of my finds to use. This time it's an old enameled cast iron pot with a lid. It was made by Dru in Holland. To the best of my knowledge, this beautiful enameled cookware comes in blue, yellow and light green. They have a lovely tulip design on them. I collect the yellow, and am lucky enough to have found several pieces in very good condition. They were made in the 30's, 40's and 50's. I read, by the time the 70's rolled around they were not being manufactured anymore. I can't find an official site for Dru, and would love to know more about the history of this company. If anyone who reads this has any info on them, I would love to hear from you.

This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspan's cookbook "Around My French Table". It can also be found in this NYTimes article here. If you'd like to see what other Doristas are doing...you can check it out here.
