Serve your favorite appetizers and salsas in this handmade work of art from Colombia. This clay serving dish has a beautifully burnished black finish, a beautiful addition to your kitchen. Each one is made by hand in the village of La Chamba in Colombia. All La Chamba clay pieces may be used on the stove top, in the oven or in the microwave.

This handmade serving piece comes from a centuries old tradition originating in La Chamba, Columbia. Each dish is made by local artisans who burnish the dishes by hand using semi-precious stones for a uniform finish, then fire the pieces for three hours. As a final touch the glowing hot ceramics are covered with wood shavings which create the signature black color.

Each serving dish is unique, with slight variations due to their handmade nature.

Care of La Chamba Cookware

Hand wash your La Chamba cookware with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. Soak heavily soiled cookware briefly to aid in cleaning. Do not use abrasive cleaners.

It is important to cure the black clay serving dish before its first use to seal it. Fill the dish with water and place it in a 400 degree F oven for 30 minutes. A more traditional curing process is to rub the piece inside and out with a ripe plantain leaving a thick coating before boiling.

Always allow for a gradual change in temperature to avoid cracking the cookware. Don’t place hot dishes on cold surfaces or vice versa.
