Le Creuset, the cast-iron cookware royalty that governs all others, just released this stop-motion video for its new Wine & Cheese Collection. For normal folk, it's simply an eye-catching few moments of appetizer porn. For me, however, it's an epic battle to the death, because it's Friday. Watch the video, then find out what actually happened at this otherwise classy cocktail shindig.

Instead, I load my potato skins with creamy homemade spinach feta dip, sprinkle with parmesan and broil 'til crispy on top. That way you can eat more of them.
