Top Tagines for Moroccan and North African Cooking

Tagines are cooking vessels commonly used in North African countries like Morocco and Algeria. It consists of two pieces - a plate-like bottom and a conical shaped lid. The bottom doubles as a serving dish, which comes in handy for nomads. Heat is retained for hours in a tagine, which is used on the stovetop in kitchens.

Cooking with a tagine is unique and produce food rich flavor.
