The conical shape top returns moisture to the food below and when the dish is done, you can serve it right from the beautiful pot. Each Tagine is hand painted and cooks all kinds of meat fish, fruit and vegetables of your liking. Each tagine is hand painted and comes with instructions and starter recipe.
