We're equal-opportunity lovers of global cuisine -- we'll eat pasta for lunch and bibimbap for dinner, followed by a midnight snack of chocolate croissants. Since we look to other cultures to discover excellent flavors, we figured we should turn to them for guidance on cookware too. Who better to look to than the French for the best pan for flipping crepes, or Morocco for the ideal tagine?
Tapping into generations of culinary knowledge, we shopped the globe for an arsenal of cookware to make some of our favorite international dishes. We also uncovered some novel ingredients and tools to add to our repertoire, like Spain's finest paella rice and a bamboo pot scrubber.
Once you stock up on your cookware, you'll want to put it all to use. Bookmark some of these international recipes, from a tender squash tagine to sugared Danish breakfast pancakes.
