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.
