My New Cast-Iron Lidded Dish!

Who is Timo Sarpaneva? I know this name because my husband has an eye for design….from furniture to the lidded dish he just surprised me with, and, everything in-between. Sometimes I feel like I am living in the storage area for a museum as everything has to be brought home while we decide if we can’t live without it or it gets sold!

My new piece of cookware..

I have amassed a large collection of cookware which I find hard to be realistic about. I always think it is better to have more than one of everything if given the opportunity. I get this panicky feeling if I pass something up. After all, the very next day it may be the exact pot, pan or dish I needed to complete my culinary masterpiece.. Also I have this fantasy of building a big kitchen with one long harvest table where people come for dinner, in which case I will need lots of equipment?

I cannot wait to try this out!

This week my husband Dave gave me an extremely fabulous cast-iron dish. It was designed by the innovative Grand-Daddy of Finnish design Timo Sarpaneva in the 1960’s. It is two identical shallow dishes that can be used as two separate dishes, or, one can act as a lid. I am determined to try it out as soon as possible.

  1. So where did your husband Dave find this wonderful piece of cookware????? The dinner you cooked in it looked great.

  2. I think he found it while scouring the internet? That dinner was also good fried up for breakfast! Tess x
