Back by popular demand, Le Creuset holds a factory to table
sale at the Charleston Area convention Center Thurs. Nov. 9 through Sun. Nov. 12. just in time for the holidays (we all know corn pudding is best served in a colorful Le Creuset Dutch oven). Guests will shop products from around the world, including colors and shapes rarely seen in the American marketplace.
Le Creuset VP of Retail Diane Foster says that the company is creating "a colorful 25,000 square foot culinary wonderland filled with a broad assortment of our best-selling shapes and colors. Additionally, we will be offering unique to market products curated especially for the holiday season and all at significant savings."
Tickets to the showcase are $10 Friday and Saturday, and free of charge Sunday. The sale kicks off with a special VIP event Thurs. from 4 to 9 p.m., which offers early access to products at a premium price, plus meet and greets with top area chefs, demos, live music, and tasty bites and sips. VIP tickets are $25. One hundred percent of the proceeds from all ticket sales benefit local partners, The Green Heart Project
and culinary scholarship funds for Culinary Institute of Charleston students.
