  • Who We Are

    Still a family-owned business, La Cuisine is based in beautiful Donegal, Ireland, an inspiring place dominated by a rugged coastline, sea cliffs & mountains. The business is owned and run by Brian Gallagher and Julianne Hayes, a husband and wife team who share a passion for cooking & have almost 20 years experience in the artisan cookware industry.

    Why Cast Iron?  It's simply because we love cooking and premium Cast Iron cookware such as La Cuisine really is the most wonderful material  to cook with. Whatever your skill level, a few basic ingredients added to stock and left to infuse in the oven for an hour or so will virtually guarantee a delicious meal. Why not bring the casserole straight to the table and serve. Apart from adding a bit of theatre to proceedings, your La Cuisine casserole will ensure that the contents remain hot and delicious.

  • Design

    This range was designed in Ireland by Marcus Notley, a specialist in luxury consumer products for the home.  Marcus has worked closely with a variety of established brand specialists and manufacturers in both Europe and the US and his designs are sold internationally.  His signature 'sculpted elegance' style has been employed to create the unique wide-angle wedge profile handles found on all La Cuisine products. These allow four fingers to pass through, guaranteeing a stable grip.  The inner wedge provides a platform on which to rest the fingers, for both comfort and stability (vital when using gloves/mitts to remove hot pans from the oven).          Click here to see our Video


    We use the latest technology in cast iron and have moved production away from traditional floor-casted processes in favour of the ultra-reliable Disa production technique.  This method, which originated in Denmark, involves the use of sand moulds and results in exceptionally smooth castings.  The moulds are used only once, meaning that every single item is quite unique.

    Design Features

    Nothing left to chance!
    •  The handles have a unique wide angle wedge profile that provides an extremely comfortable & secure grip.
    •  To facilitate internal basting, we use a tiered lid design. These ridges collect (flavoured) steam droplets and causes them to gather, drop and disperse back into the food being cooked.  This ensures that food stays moist and enhances flavour even more.
    •  Inside, the pots have a large radius corner for ease of use and to remove corner food traps.
    •  The base of the pots is slightly thicker than the side walls. This helps to create a more even distribution of heat across the floor of the pots.
    •  Stainless steel knobs - we designed these specifically to provide the most stable and comfortable grip possible.
