This delightful cazuela dish is a beautiful and versatile addition to any kitchen. Cazuelas are the go-to cookware for us, whether for simmering chorizo on the stove, roasting garlic chicken in the oven, or serving a big bowl of Marcona almonds to guests.
This rustic terra cotta dish has a cheerful white exterior glaze and is a great example of oven to table cookware. These dishes retain heat and keep food warm after it is served.
Artisans craft these attractive cazuelas in the town of Breda, near the Pyrenees Mountains, as they have since Roman times. The clay from this region contains a fine gravel which creates a sturdy ceramic that has excellent heat retention properties.
The glaze on the cazuela is safe for serving food and contains no lead. To prepare the cazuela for cooking you will need to soak it in water for at least a few hours, or overnight. It is very important to avoid big changes in temperature, always heat slowly and allow to cool to room temperature before washing or putting in the refrigerator. Wash by hand with a non-abrasive cleaning tool.
