Emile Henry is celebrating pie season and its 170th anniversary with its newest and biggest pie dish: an ultra-large take on its popular classic pie dish.
Le Grande is 11.6 inches across and holds more than 2-quarts of pie filling. Made in France from local Burgundy clay, the dish is said to bake a tender, extra-flaky crust.
The ceramic dish is scratch-resistant and is designed to stand up to any type of knife, pie server or scoop. Its ample size also makes it great for freezing casseroles or pot pies.
Designed to go directly from the freezer to the oven, the dish is oven-safe up to 520° Fahrenheit and can be placed under the broiler to caramelize pie toppings. Each item is signed on the bottom by the potter who made it.
“Emile Henry created its first pie dish for the American market 27 years ago and was awarded a design patent for the fluted shape which is now renowned worldwide,” said Tara Steffen, vice president of Marketing for Emile Henry USA. “The Emile Henry Pie Dish is also the official pie dish of the American Pie Council (APC) and the Annual National Pie championships.”
