These beautiful cazuela dishes are a go-to dish in our kitchen. They are the ideal size for serving tapas, whether it be a bowl of olives or a sizzling portion of garlic shrimp. Beyond that, these little ramekins can be used to hold chopped garlic and other ingredients for preparing larger recipes.
Cazuelas can be found in any Spanish kitchen and have been a staple for centuries. They are sturdy enough for cooking, yet attractive enough serve right on your table.
Our supplier in Cataluña forms each cazuela, then applies small handles by hand – these are called “orejas” in Spain. All glazes used are food safe and lead free.
To prepare your cazuelas for use, first wash by hand in soapy water. To get them ready to use in the oven, soak for several hours, or overnight. When cooking with terra cotta cazuelas it is essential to avoid large changes in temperature. Heat slowly when cooking and cool to room temperature before washing or adding to the refrigerator.
Our cazuelas come from the town of Breda near the Pyrenees Mountains, a favorite source for terra cotta cookware since Roman times. The solid terra cotta dishes hold heat, perfect for keeping meals warm even after the dish is brought to the dining table.
