Serving Suggestions

Bearing in mind that we eat with our eyes in the first instance, I think the way food is presented is very important. Presentation shouldnt be fussy, but with a few simple but beautiful platters, dishes and bowls it can be transformed into a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds! The right dish in the right size makes all the difference, whether it be rustic food served in the rustic style or something more elaborate.

Tierra Negra Black Round Ovenproof Dish No Handles - Small


ROUND NO HANDLES - SMALL (Dimensions - 20 X 3 - 4cm)

£28.00 including postage & packaging

These beautiful black Tierra Negra dishes are made in Colombia from just clay and are therefore completely organic. No artificial chemicals of any description are used in their production. It requires amazing skill to mould these pieces by hand, especially the larger dishes and the ones with handles.

NB: Please note that no two items are the same and variations in size and appearance will occur as each piece is hand crafted.

They can be used both in the oven and on the hob, over any direct source of heat such as gas, electric, Aga or ceramic (but not induction), under the grill or in a microwave and even an open fire. They retain their heat very well and therefore keep food hot for a long time and the attractive black satin finish makes them ideal for serving food from cooker to table.

They are completely dishwasher-proof and are very easy to clean by hand, as they have a natural non-stick quality. They are surprisingly lightweight.

All in all they are just brilliant and enhance the look of most food. They are particularly well suited to gratins and I use them for serving vegetables, which look wonderful against the rich black colour.

These come in so many different shapes and sizes, with handles and without.  Please enquire by email or telephone if you would like a size or shape that is not shown here.
