Let’s start with the basics. Tagine, is a dish that originated in Northern Africa and has since made its way across Europe and beyond. It’s particularly popular for dinner parties because it feeds a crowd and it’s incredibly flavorful. At it’s core, a tagine is large chunks of stewed meat or chicken, tons of spices, preserved lemons and fresh herbs on top. It’s cooked in a vessel that’s also called a tagine. It’s basically an earthenware dish with a tight fitting, cone-shaped lid. During cooking, that lid catches the rising vapor and condensation and allows it to drip back over the ingredients making them extra juicy and flavorful.
