1. Tajine is specially designed in such a way as to keep the temperature well, therefore, after it has warmed up, it is necessary to adhere to the average temperature and, if possible, do not open the Tajine during cooking.

2. Also, thanks to the design of the lid, all dishes, almost without exception, should be allowed to “rest” with the lid closed for about 10 minutes. after removing from the fire, during this time your dish will have time to absorb the aromas as much as possible and acquire a unique, unique taste.

3. The dish is cooked in brand name tagine Graupera.
