Watching The Apprentice shopping task and wondering what the more exotic items like a tagine actually are? Then you’re in luck…
A tagine or tajine is a North African earthenware cooking pot consisting of a circular dish and a tall conical lid that sits on top during cooking and lets the steam collect and run back to the base.
Tagine dishes are traditionally cooked on charcoal but can also be placed on a low heat in an oven or on a stove.
Tagines are glazed and often highly decorated and can be used as ornaments or serving dishes as well as for cooking.
