Just in time for Thanksgiving, steve mckenzie’s is introducing the new Chanterelle collection by Gien Earthenware.
This new dinnerware line features a beautiful pattern of woodland mushrooms, fern leaves and forest fruits. And, while Gien Earthenware is manufactured in France, it’s actually dishwasher safe – a real bonus for the busy holiday season!
If you’re not ready to commit to an entire table of the Chanterelle pattern, adding a few key pieces to your tablescape – while mixing an matching with your current dinnerware – will make the perfect seasonal touch!
Now that you’re envisioning a fabulous fall table, we have an ideal meal to serve on your new Gien Earthenware… Mulligan Stew! This hearty, and comforting dish will warm you from the inside out. A big thanks to steve mckenzie’s friend and team member, Kim Crosby for sharing her recipe with us:
