Tagine

The slow-cooked tagine is a famous tender, aromatic dish,typical in North Africa.The tagine itself is an earthenware pot with an elf-like conical lid. It is this unique shape that makes it the ideal slow-cooker for a myriad of delicious recipes.

There is surprisingly little work involved in a dish that is incredibly satisfying. Perhaps the most difficult part is waiting for it to cook, as a true tagine can take two and a half hours; however, this is what makes it so delicious! Onions are finely chopped to create a nesting base for the meat. Large wedges of vegetables such as potato, carrot or courgette are placed around mandala-style along with olives, chickpeas or beans. A little oil is added, mixed with aromatic spices such as cumin, ginger and saffron. Fruit such as dates or lemons may be added along with a generous portion of garlic to create a robust, tantalizing flavour.

Our tagines are made with local produce. Although the traditional tagine contains meat, vegetarian, vegan or other diatary requests can eb accomodated. Tagine know-how is a must for any lover of dinner parties, exotic dishes and unique home-cooked meals.
