These charming little cazuela dishes will become a favorite in your kitchen! These classic terra cotta dishes have a cheerful white glaze, and are great for serving tapas and other small bites.
Cazuelas are a favorite in our kitchen, just the right size for holding diced herbs or other ingredients for recipes. They are also excellent for holding chilled olives or roasted nuts when you are ready for a snack.
These cazuelas are made in Catalunya, where each one is formed and small handles are added by hand – called “orejas” in Spain. The clear and bright white glazes are food safe and lead free, excellent for serving your favorite tapa.
Wash these cazuelas by hand with a cloth or soft brush. Before first use, clean thoroughly. If you would like to use them in the oven, completely submerge them in fresh water for a few hours, or overnight. When cooking with terra cotta it is very important to avoid big changes in temperature. Heat slowly and cool completely before washing or putting in the refrigerator.
These cazuelas come from the town of Breda in Catalunya, where they have been making terra cotta cookware since Roman times. The local clay produces a terra cotta that holds heat, great for keeping meals warm even after the dish is brought to the dining table.
