there have been a few discussions on tagines on dc k.because they are ornamental some are made to be just that....ornaments.you do need to make sure that the one you buy has been manufactured for cooking purposes thus the glaze,decorations or pottery/ceramics etc don't have any lead or other nasties in them that may leach out into the food
Thanks Harry...I will look out for one and make sure it is not an ornamental one

It's not just that some of them are ornamental and not food safe. There are some that are food safe, but you can't use them on a burner (hob), only in the oven.

Good Morning and Welcome Aboard to D.C.

Firstly, since the Iberian Peninsula ( Tarifa, Cádiz in Andalusia ) is only 14km via Ferry, my husband and I have been to several cities in Morocco.

We had bought our Tagines ( tajines), both the oven safe type and the Decorative serving variety at the central Baazars in the cities we had visited over the years and have gifted our daughters, both married with children of their own, with large size oven safe Tagines.

In the autumn when we return to Spain, as we are at our home in south eastern Italia, I shall prepare tagine, as they are in our Loft in Spain.

Personally, I am quite a fan of the Lemon Chicken Tagine and Lamb & Dates too. Absolutely divine ... and heaven scent with all the lovely spices and perfume. How true it is, that once you taste a Tagine Dish, you shall know why the Moroccans devised this clay earthenware vessel to bake their chicken, lamb or fish or veggies in.

Thanks for sharing your lovely recipes.
Margaux Cintrano.

The suggested proper traditional pan in which a paella is prepared, is called a Paellera.
