Like many of our limited-edition collaborations, our creative partnership with Nancy Silverton was years in the making. A James Beard Award Winning chef, Nancy Silverton is known for Pizzeria Mozza and all of its iterations, as well as founding La Brea Bakery. When it comes to the tools she uses, she shares our obsession with excellence. For this reason, we worked closely with her along every step of the design process in this limited-edition launch. The result was a unique, rare collection, featuring three baking pans and a knife. Here, we outline our favorite aspects of each and why you should add them to your cart before they sell out.

If you’re going to have a serrated knife in your kitchen, make sure it’s a well-crafted one. Chef Silverton specified that it needed a longer than average blade with 24 serrated points that would slice through a crusty loaf without crushing it.

She also included a decorative brass rivet along with the two functional ones on the bone-colored micarta handle to make this very limited knife truly one-of-a-kind. Like all of our Knives, it’s full-tang and fully forged, meaning that it’s made from one piece of hammered metal that runs from the tip of the blade through the handle, resulting in a more balanced, incredibly durable blade. Not only is this knife sturdy and beautiful, it’s also packaged in a box designed by Chef Silverton’s friend Coco Shinomiya.

Baking Set

Nancy Porcelain Bakeware Set

Chef Silverton wrote the book on desserts—her first cookbook Desserts was published in 1986—so we knew she was the person to turn to when releasing a specially decorated line of our French Porcelain Bakeware. They’re crafted from a porcelain recipe that’s over 200 years old, which is not only naturally non stick, but is also oven-safe up to 650F. You can purchase each of these limited-edition pieces individually or together as a 3-piece set.

9x13 Baking Dish

Rectangular Nancy Silverton Bakeware

The perfect size for a casserole or cobbler, our rectangular dish holds up to 5.3QTs. It features two slightly angled handles for easy maneuvering in and out of the oven with ease. The blue wave pattern and rim are touches designed by Chef Silverton herself, so you can easily serve out of this dish as well as bake in it.

8x8 Baking Dish

Nancy Square Porcelain Bakeware

Brownies have never looked prettier than in this square baking dish. Plus, since the porcelain is non stick without the use of butter or cooking spray, you can guarantee an easy clean-up no matter how gooey you like your baked desserts. The delicate gray polka dot pattern and rim adds a playful touch to your next sweet or savory creation.

10x6.6 Oval Gratin Dish

Nancy Oval Porcelain Bakeware

When you’re craving baked pasta, this attractive, oval dish is your new go-to. Its shape makes it well-suited for layering anything with cheese that will crisp up around the edges without getting stuck in the corners. The green rim and floral design brings a splash of sophisticated color to your table all year round.

Each of the pieces from our Nancy Silverton Collection is designed to last and be passed down as a piece of heirloom cookware. With proper care for the Bakeware and routine sharpening and honing for the knife, they’ll last for years to come.
