Tagines

for some time i've been thinking of buying a tagine, but i don't know anyone who has one, so can't get advice on them.
are they worth the expense, or would it be another pot for the top of the cupboard??

any advice anyone, please?????

Can someone explain to me exactly what the hell you do with a tagine?

Re: Tagines

In all honesty, I think that it is just another pot for the kitchen - but one with a funny shaped lid that you will struggle to find a space for. I brought one back from Tunisia, struggled to store it - then managed to smash it. No great loss...

I bought an earthenwear dish with a normal lid that I use all the time however.

Re: Tagines

I have a large Tagine which I use, my son imports from Morocco and sells these, he has I think two left, I will check the size and prices for you if interested, he has an Ebay shop where he sells Tagine spices too, very popular this time of year for some reason.

The Tagine I have is earthenware which needs to be primed, basically you need to soak it in water for few hours then put it in cold oven and put the temperature to about 200c and cook for few hours. After which you let it cool completely and then rub olive oil into it and let it soak in, bake it again for couple of hours and let it cool, it's now ready for use.

The thing to keep in mind is that Tagines need to be cooked slowly, the fire must be on low, the temperature will rise slowly and the heat will stay in the dish.

Re: Tagines

I love them! Not cooked with one yet, but have presented Moroccan style food in mine and find that the lid's handy to keep food warm. Just a thought, if you're planning to cook with one, make sure it's the right size for your oven as come can be quite tall!

Good luck, enjoy and post any tips later!

Re: Tagines

Mine is too big for the oven, I use a low flame on the gas stove, usually takes about 1-2 hours to cook properly, you can take the heat off half an hour before the end because it still carries on cooking with the heat stored in the earthenware.
