Versatile baking dish suitable for lasagne or apple crumble alike. La Chamba is a small village situated on the Magdalena river in Colombia. The pottery tradition dates back over 500 years to pre-Columbian times and most of the methods used to make the pottery remain unchanged. This is the only place in Colombia where the black pottery is made and the products are now well known all over Colombia and used in households, restaurants and hotels. Product history and care instructions included.
Traditional but timeless in look the La Chamba products are distinguished by their clean lines and black silky sheen, the result of lengthy hand burnishing. They are both functional and versatile as they can be in direct contact with any heat source, even wood fires, and can be used for all cooking processes. They retain heat better than metal cookware. The natural glaze ensures that the products are lead and cadmium free and so food safe. As with all handmade products the pieces may have slight blemishes in the form or finish of the materials however these do not compromise the aesthetics or functionality of the product. Popular myth has it that the spirits of mother earth are liberated when using the clay cookware and give a helping hand during cooking.
