A Tagine is as significant to the cooking of North African food as the wok is to Chinese cuisine and its design is not by accident. Fuel and water are two precious elements in this region and both have to be used frugally. Charcoal fires are almost the only form of “cooking equipment” they have and the wide shallow base of the Tagine can be pushed down among the coals to take full advantage of the heat. The Le Creuset Tagine has been modelled very closely on the traditional design. However, as terracotta is not suitable to use directly on our hobs, the base has been recreated in cast iron. This allows for the very slow and even heat transfer, which a Tagine needs to provide for the food. The conical lid, which is made from glazed Stoneware, allows just the same pattern of re-condensation of the steam, but the glazed finish makes it less porous and therefore cleaner and easier to use.
