We can't forget about Le Creuset's new trinkets. In the U.K., the kitchenware brand just launched its nature-inspired Botanique collection, featuring goodies in fig, nectar, deep teal, and artichaut. In the U.S., kitchen enthusiasts are going crazy over the new Cool Mint color—essentially springtime in the form of a dutch oven.
