About Emile Henry
Emile Henry was founded in 1850 and is located in Marcigny, a small town tucked within the province of Burgundy, France. It is still owned and operated by the Henry family. Over the generations Emile Henry has established a world-renowned reputation for creating the finest quality ceramic ovenware, gourmet cooking products, and exceptional bakeware products. Their products include baking dishes and cake stands. The discerning gourmand will recognize the quality in every loaf pan, casserole dish, stew pot, handcrafted pie dish, trivet, tagine, and brazier they create.
Emile Henry manufacturers all of their cooking products from clay found in the Burgundy region. Burgundy is noted for their world-famous wines due in part to the mineral-rich limestone soil. It is this soil and clay that go into the special clay cookware crafting formulas that are the basis of all Emile Henry ceramic cookware products.
