How to use a Tagine at home

Before using a tagine for the first time, you'll want to season it.

Use a tagine in a low heat oven or place it on a gas or electric stove top.

Use the lowest heat necessary to keep the stew simmering gently.

A diffuser, a circular piece of aluminum placed between the tagine and burner, is highly recommended to buffer and more evenly distribute the stove's heat.

North African tagines make delicious family meals, and the presentation in a clay or glazed tagine is impressive enough for company.

Simple Cooking Tips

Make sure your cooking work area has good lighting so you can safely see what you are cutting, seasoning and cooking.

Get comfortable with the recipe, read it all the way through. Always read and re-read your recipes before you start cooking.

Season and taste as you go. Always taste your food before seasoning.

Spices and herbs are essential to African food cooking and baking. Keep your spices away from sources of heat like the stove or lights. Herbs and spices can lose their flavor when exposed to humidity and heat.

Recipes are only a guideline so feel free to substitute items that you like.

When cooking with chili peppers, protect your hands and eyes by wearing rubber gloves. Or coat your hands in vegetable oil and wash them with soap and water immediately after handling.
