I consider my first tagine is one of the best presents I ever got for my birthday. Ten years later and I am still going strong. A tagine is not like the other trendy kitchen utilities. It is something you use often and it is a fantastic way to impress your friends and family. It is also very social and the food keeps warm for longer. 5.00

A tip to anyone looking to buy a tagine. The cast iron version is the most durable and lasts much longer than the clay version. Thanks for this great recipe by the way. 5.00
