These great little cazuela dishes are a favorite in our kitchen. They are the perfect size for serving tapas, whether roasted Marcona almonds or hot individual portions of chorizo simmered in wine. Beyond that, they are a great way to hold chopped herbs and other ingredients for cooking.
Cazuelas are an essential tool in Spanish kitchens and have been for centuries. They are durable enough to cook with, yet attractive enough to use at cocktail parties or family gatherings.
Our artisan supplier in Cataluña forms each cazuela, then adds small handles by hand – called “orejas” in Spain. Both the bright blue glaze and the clear interior glaze are food safe and lead free.
To get your cazuelas ready for use, first wash by hand in soapy water. If you want to use them in the oven, soak them for several hours, or overnight. When cooking with this type of ceramic it is important to avoid drastic changes in temperature. Heat slowly and cool to room temperature before washing or adding to the refrigerator.
Our cazuelas come from the village of Breda at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains, a famous source for terra cotta cookware since Roman times. The sturdy terra cotta dishes hold heat, excellent for keeping meals warm even after the dish is brought to the dining table.
