What's a Tagine pot?
A Tagine (also spelled “tajine”) is an earthenware cooking vessel which originated in North Africa and dates back to 8th century BC (according to the latest archaeological excavations). It has a unique cone-shaped lid, which helps condensed vapor accumulate at the top of the dome and come back down towards the ingredients. This makes for very tasty, juicy, and flavorful meals with nutrients being retained in the food, so as healthy as you can eat. By contrast, in other cookware, the steam escapes the pot/pan during cooking, causing nutrients to be lost. In addition, less liquid, in particular oils, is needed to cook the food in a tagine, and food cooks slowly until tender for a yummier and healthier result.
Tagines are extremely versatile – they can go from stovetop, to inside the oven, and ultimately on your dining table to use as serveware. Their magnificent designs, ease of use, durability, and versatility as both a cooking and serving vessel, has made the tagine a staple in the homes and kitchens of many for centuries, and for many more centuries to come.
