All questions

I was given a small Tagine pot with no instructions. What is the right way to cook with it? It is terra cotta with a glaze?

Thank you.

Here's a link to how to prepare a clay or ceramic tagine with advice from Paula Wolfert. She is the leading expert on Moroccan cooking, has a new book out "The Food of Morocco" as well as several previous ones on the subject including "Mediterranean Clay Pot Cooking" & a cooking group on facebook where you can ask her questions: http://www.facebook.com...

Before first use it's a good idea to soak it in a sink overnight. Use a flame tamer over a gas hub. Heat it up slowly. I have numerous clay pieces and so far I haven't had one crack.

I believe tangines are usually clay or ceramic. Some are glazed and some are unglazed.

You will need to cure it before the first use. The link below shows several different ways to cure a tangine, with helpful photos too! It is from the blog of tangines.com, a website Paula Wolfert suggests too.

Tangines are placed directly on the stove top for cooking. The blog also has some recipes if you're ready to try out your new cookware.

Good luck!

All the advice you have received is terrific and correct. Unfortunately some tagines are not made for traditional stovetop cooking. Would you mind posting a photograph on the Facebook Moroccan Cooking Group site with your query? I might be able to give you the info on your new Tagine. ,
