Yes, we're still in the bitter depths of winter, but we've have some fresh news from Le Creuset that has us dreaming of warmer, brighter seasons. Today, the cult-favorite cookware brand has unveiled two shades of enamel absolutely perfect for spring celebrations: sunny Nectar and verdant Artichaut.

"Nectar and Artichaut are two new hues that are rich, soulful, and welcoming," the brand said in a press release. "This spring, food lovers are invited to bask in the golden warmth of Nectar, a ray of sunshine swirled with honey and a hint of caramel. With Artichaut, Le Creuset evokes the artichoke's mystique in a chic, opulent green that is born of the garden and revered in the kitchen."

Dozens of Le Creuset products are available in the new colors, including the 3.5-quart braiser, 10.25-inch signature skillet, and the classic 5.5-quart round Dutch oven, as well as select accessories. We can just imagine serving a tangy and spicy spinach shakshuka in the luxe Artichaut skillet, or baking fluffy cinnamon rolls in a Nectar dish. We're already making room in our crowded cupboards for one or two of these colorful cookware pieces.
