Ingredients:

– 800 g frozen puff pastry, thawed
– Flour, for sprinkling
– 30 ml olive oil
– 40g butter
– 30 ml honey
– 30 ml Dijon mustard
– 45 ml red wine vinegar
– 3 sprigs of rosemary
– 10-12 large leeks, cut into 3cm slices
– Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper for seasoning
– 60 g parmesan cheese

Process:

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and trim to fit a Le Creuset Signature 12-inch shallow casserole dish, using the lid as a measurement guide. Put the dough in the refrigerator to chill for 20 minutes.

2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter with the olive oil until foamy. Add the honey, mustard and vinegar, and reduce the heat to low. Let the honey caramelize slightly. When the honey and butter mixture turns an amber color, turn off the heat and sprinkle some rosemary on the bottom of the roasting pan. Spread the leeks over the entire surface of the saucepan. Season with salt and turn the heat back on. Caramelize the leeks, often checking the color so they don’t burn.

3. Remove from heat and grate the parmesan. Cover with the cold dough and fold the edges. Make a cross in the center of the dough to allow steam to escape and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the dough is cooked through. Let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes before carefully turning it out onto a plate. There may be some leeks left in the saucepan, but just add them back to the batter. Sprinkle with more grated Parmesan if desired, and serve with a fresh green salad.

In short, Le Creuset casseroles combine artisanal tradition with modern innovation to deliver an exceptional culinary experience. With their unmatched durability, cooking versatility, superior heat retention, and timeless aesthetics, these cast iron cookware is truly a must-have for any culinary enthusiast looking to elevate their culinary art to new heights.
