Emile Henry Tagine
Founded in 1850, and located in Marcigny, a small town in the province of Burgundy, France, Emile Henry has established a worldwide reputation for manufacturing the finest quality ceramic ovenware, gourmet cooking products, and bakeware products. Still owned and operated by the Henry family, the company today manufactures all of their new cooking products from Burgundy clay using their proprietary Ceradon® state-of-the-art manufacturing process.
A tagine is a special dish designed for foods like chicken that benefit from both a clay dish that insulates and slowly cooks and is made tender by steam. The lid, shaped like a pointed hat, allows the steam to circulate above and around the conents while cooking, thus infusing the dish with flavor and tenderness.
