These beautiful blue cazuelas are an everyday dish for the kitchen, for serving simple tapas or cooking a delicious meal! These traditional terra cotta dishes bring a burst of color to your home.
We use ours to make traditional Spanish dishes and stews, but you we are just as likely to use them to serve side dishes at Thanksgiving or pastries at breakfast.
Each of our cazuelas is solid terra cotta with small handles added by hand - they call them “orejas” in Spain. These casserole dishes are food safe and lead free.
Wash cazuelas by hand, especially before first use. To prepare them for cooking or baking, completely submerge the dishes in water for a few hours, or overnight. It is very important to heat cazuelas slowly and allow to cool to room temperature before washing – big changes in temperature can damage them.
These traditional dishes come from the town of Breda in Catalunya, where terra cotta kitchenware has been the standard cookware since Roman times. The local clay is ideal for making sturdy terra cotta that holds heat, perfect for keeping meals warm even after the dish is brought to the dining table.
