SAN FRANCISCO--()--Williams Sonoma, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, announced today an eight city dinner series, celebrating the vibrant colors of Le Creuset. The Cooking in Color dinner series will pair some of the country’s most renowned chefs with a different color of the Le Creuset assortment for a one of a kind dinner experience where participating chefs will develop a menu that also celebrates the color.

The dinner series kicked off in San Francisco on May 30th with Dominique Crenn and the color teal.

The Cooking in Color Series will continue with events across the country at premiere venues in Nashville, Raleigh, Chicago, Portland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Seattle.
