Endlessly versatile and a kitchen workhorse, this casserole dish from La Chamba is a traditional piece of Colombian cookware crafted from locally mined clay. Dating back at least 700 years, this style of cookware has been made and used in the same way across the region. Hand fashioned from dark grey clay, each piece is coated in a black terracotta glaze that's porous and allows heat and moisture to circulate better, also imparting a slightly smoky flavour into your food.
La Chamba cookware can be used in just about any kitchen scenario, and looks just as beautiful for presenting food. We'd use this casserole dish for hearty stews.
Available in two sizes, and comes with a lid with handle.
