The Arabic word tagine basically describes a dish that’s cooked and served in one vessel — typically decorative and stunningly beautiful with a base and dome cover, the tagine is what I like to call a ‘biblical slow cooker.’ In ancient days, this earthenware pot was put on hot charcoal, and cooked low and slow to culinary perfection — whether it’s meat, vegetables or both, cooking with a tagine brings to your table delicious food and a sharing of the history and mysteries of the ancient world. A part of life that has not been removed by the modern conveniences of the 21st century.
Tagines designs and sizes vary — their designs and hues could rival a couture runway in Milan — intricately and beautifully hand-painted and developed for modern day use in an oven or on a blaze with a diffuser, this cooking instrument lets your food imagination soar. Choosing a tagine depends upon your personal style — no different than one’s preferences and taste in fashion. And, why shouldn’t your table be equally as designed to reflect your personality!
