Movember Chili Fiesta!

We held our very own Movember Fundraiser this past Friday to raise more money for our GCW Custom Facial Hair - Movember Team! We raised over $450.00 to go towards our team. :)

A few of the men from the Shop agreed to make pots of chili.. some very spicy, some not as much.. but they were all delicious! We had some people donate buns, caesar salad, and drinks, as well as Moustache Cakes for dessert! Most of the girls (aka. the only people without moustaches!) got a picture with our "Mo-scot".

Les Couleurs de Le Creuset

(Pardon my French... Feel free to correct me!)

Have you ever wondered: "What can I do to make my kitchen POP? To add that WOW factor?".
Everyone longs for that kitchen that you walk into and all you can do is simply gasp at it's beauty.
Now, of course, carefully planning out a kitchen; the colours, material, countertop, backsplash, flooring, wall colour, lighting, and accessories, are all the ingredients required to make a kitchen "pop".

BUT.. there is hope! A very simple way to add a splash of colour, some fun, an interesting piece, some eye candy, and you guessed it.... to make your kitchen "pop":

Let me introduce you to Le Creuset.. A company from France, born in 1925, who has mastered the Cast Iron Cookware. From saucepans to roasters, braisers and skillets, you can find what you're looking for in their Cast Iron Collection. Not only do they specialize in Cast Iron, but they also carry Stoneware, Stainless Steel, Forged Hard-Anodized Cookware, kettles, utensils, accessories, and much more!

The real treasure behind a Le Creuset pot or pan, is it's COLOUR.  They have the most vibrant, rich, invigorating, refreshing, and inspiring colours!
All Le Creuset Cookware is available at Kiss the Cook, downtown London, ON (551 Richmond).
