Some dishes, like charlottes, souffles and tagines, refer to both a dish and the pot in which they are prepared. And, so it is with Tagine.
The Tagine dish is a savory stew native to North African countries, particularly Morocco, which uses any combination of fish, meat, poultry, vegetables and even fruit.
This specialty casserole made by Le Creuset consists of a shallow 12" black-enameled, 2 quart cast iron (flame and oven-proof) dish with a vividly colored 9" tall earthenware conical lid that sits snugly inside the base, thus securing that the steam generated in cooking will not be lost. This moisture then condenses on the sidewalls of the lid and gently bastes the ingredients below. The result is a juicy and succulent tagine cooked in a tagine. Boxed. Recipe booklet included.
