Menaje was founded in the Basque Country in 1949 by Marcos Larrañaga. Lacor is the coming together of two families, and the union of two names, Larrañaga and Cortabarria. This family tradition has propelled Lacor forward, from the small factory within which its legacy began to the international company it is today. It is said that in any given Spanish home and restaurant, you will find Lacor’s wares. It is a brand trusted by the most discerning chefs and by the most discerning home cooks in Europe’s culinary epicenter.


Today, it is Marcos Larrañaga’s grandchildren who continue the legacy of their family and of the Lacor brand. It is thanks to that tradition of family, craftsmanship and excellence that  Lacor continues to create superior cookware.

In that tradition, we bring you Lacor Home. Family owned and operated in the US. We are thrilled to share and grow our legacy with you and to share our passion for quality, value and connection.



Lacor Home was created by sisters Sarah & Devon Shires.

When Sarah was a student in college, her study abroad took her to San Sebastian by luck.  Little did she know, it would alter and shape her path and ultimately tie her to the Basque Country for life.  A cooking class in one of San Sebastian’s famous cooking societies helped fuel her love for Basque cooking and culture, and fostered a deeper understanding for the Basque’s pride in the kitchen as extending far beyond just a great meal, to the experience of cooking and dining together.

Meanwhile back at home, Devon as a young girl was busy devouring any PBS cooking show that aired, watching herself in the mirror as she harnessed Julia Child and helping their dad in the kitchen in the evenings. Eventually her studies and love for food would take her to the Basque Country for a stage at Martin Berasategui’s 3-Michelin star flagship restaurant and ultimately allow her to follow her passions to a career as a chef and culinarian. She opened a restaurant, has been a North American chef for various Spanish food service brands and is a culinary designer.

More than anything, Sarah and Devon love high-quality products that facilitate memorable, quality experiences. In that focus, after many years and lots of life, Sarah and Devon have brought together their passions for food, quality and connection to bring you Lacor Home.  Being able to bring factory-direct, high-quality crafted kitchenware to US kitchens is something they are thrilled to share and they look forward to bringing the tradition of LACOR HOME to you.
