The tajine is a middle eastern pot used for cooking meat or vegetables. It is particularly useful for slow cooking where the cone shaped lid facilitates condensation of moisture during the cooking process and returns it to the dish. This produces very tender meat dishes and helps to maintain rich flavours and aromas.
Traditional tajines are ceramic, the non-stick, dark brown, aluminium used in Rodolfo Dordogne’s Tajine for KnIndustrie, is a material that is well suited for this use.
