Tagines - View our range of products here from Anthony Ryans cookware shop for excellent quality Tagines to suit your needs.
Tagines are tall and conical shaped and originate from North Africa. They are used to make their namesake Moroccan dish ‘Tagines’. These are slow cooked meat stews delicately spiced with morrocan spices. Some Tagines are completely made of earthenware or stoneware and others are part cast iron and part stoneware. Both essentially cook the same way; in fact, they cook very similar to a slow cooker and Dutch Oven’s.
The tagine's conical shape makes a uniquely moist, hot cooking environment for the dish being cooked. The base is wide and shallow, and the tall lid fits snugly inside. As the food cooks, steam rises into the cone, condenses, and then trickles down the sides back into the dish.
Other Uses for Tagine Cookware
Tagines generally range in size and are also useful for perfect for steaming couscous, making Moroccan stews and roasts. Tagines can also go from stove-top (cast iron base only) to oven with ease. Rice, couscous, and beans dishes can all be cooked spectacularly in a Tagine. Simply by taking the lid off, a tagine could be used as a roasting dish and then be carried straight to the table.
