M. Wells Offers Its Cassoulet Bowls

Cassoulet season has ended, but the handmade bowls that M. Wells in Long Island City, Queens, commissioned to bake and serve theirs this year are timeless. The blue-and-white pottery pieces, in slightly varied designs and tones, can just as easily hold servings of bouillabaisse or be used for summer berries, cherries, a thatch of coleslaw or crudités. They’re made by Janet Belden, a local potter, with a Majolica-style glaze, and they are oven and microwave-safe. Each is about eight inches in diameter with a capacity just shy of a quart. You might start to think about Mother’s Day.

Cassoulet Pottery, $60 for a set of six, M. Wells, 43-15 Crescent Street (43rd Avenue) Long Island City, Queens, 718-786-9060, magasinwells.com/take-out-menu.
