If you looked at my cook book collection you would know that I like food from far way places.
Having layed eyes on a tagine some years back, I knew I would own one sometime.
I did get one and finally decided to use it. Maybe it was because I had just finished a conversation with two Egyptian girls and what they ate.
I had a roast. It went into the tagine with some middle eastern spices. It cooked for 1 1/2 hours.
I am not sure it was any more tender than if cooked in a different container. It made a very tasty dinner.
