Introduce yourself to the delicious flavor of cataplana! This fresh, aromatic stew of seafood, ham and sausages is presented in a hand-made copper kettle that is shaped like a clam shell. The cataplana is not only the name for the stew but also for the cookware. It reminds us of the paella of Valencia or the tagine of Morocco - the dish and the vessel share the same word.
Like a beautiful precursor to the pressure cooker, the cataplana is sealed shut once all of the ingredients are added, and cannot be opened until the stew is ready to eat.
These gorgeous copper cataplanas are hand hammered in southern Portugal. A cork base or trivet is included for serving. They will be a beautiful addition to your kitchen and a delightful serving piece for years to come.
