This stunning Moroccan Tagine is designed with a shallow enameled dish and conical lid which is ideal for the long, slow simmer of rich, flavorful recipes. The eye-catching, tight-fitting lid forms an excellent seal to keep moisture and heat inside. The conical shape also helps moisture circulate throughout the piece so there's no need to open, stir or turn the tagine, making for easy preparation.
For centuries, North Africa has had access to a myriad of wonderful spices to complement the region's diverse selection of seafood and meats. The traditional method of cooking in North Africa--with the Tagine--has been used for centuries to slow cook with these spices. Precious little water is needed to keep foods moist, and the unique design of the Tagine lid locks in the combination of flavors. The base in this model, made of cast iron, works with any heat source: gas, electric radiant or solid plates, ceramic, halogen, induction, and Aga-Rayburn-type stoves. The tall, inverted cone shape keeps the top far from the heat source and from absorbing the heat, and thus stays cool to the touch.
Le Creuset has also included many wonderful North African recipes for the Tagine, including soups, main dishes, salads, and desserts. Create a truly traditional North African feast with this amazing kitchen supplement..
