| /


Our delight Tagine allows you to make delicious traditional Tagine and other simmering dishes on all hobs (including induction). It is made from state-of-the-art ceramic and is lightweight and highly responsive to pick up or solve. In addition, it spreads heat evenly to gently simmer and reveal the most delicate flavors. The result is soft, fluffy and concentrated in aromas thanks to the unique shape of the lid which allows the evaporated cooking juices to circulate. The clean lines of its white lid and its generous matte black base ensure an elegant table service and sublime all recipes, exotic or more traditional. With its technical enamel, 100% waterproof of a natural non-stick, it is easy to maintain and is dishwasher safe. Handcrafted and controlled in our workshops in Burgundy.

Resistance Against Mechanical Shocks: During everyday use, there are many opportunities to bang a dish or a set of plates. Particularly resistant to shocks, our ceramic is even used in restaurants!
Resistance Against Temperature Changes: A dish or stewpot should be able to withstand wide variations in temperature. Our ceramics allow our products to be taken directly from the freezer to the hot oven (+250°C/500°F).
Resistance Against Fading Colors: Heat, the dishwasher or sharp instruments will all have an aging effect on a product. Our glazes are particularly resistant to the dishwasher and the most aggressive of detergents.

Chicken Curry



Spice blend

1 1/2 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp fennel seeds or ground fennel seeds

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp ground cloves

¼ tsp Cayenne pepper, or more if you desire


3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 medium yellow onions, sliced

4 garlic cloves, minced

½ Tbsp ground ginger

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, drained


2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1 1/4-inch cubes

1/3 cup heavy cream

2 Tbsp chopped cilantro


In a small mixing bowl whisk together all of the spices in the spice blend, set aside.

Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in the bottom of the Emile Henry Tagine over medium- high heat.

 Sauté the sliced onion until slightly golden brown, about 6-9 minutes.

Add in garlic and ground ginger, mix with a spatula or wooden spoon and sauté for 1 minute, then add in spice blend and mix again, sauté for 1 more minute.

Pour in chicken broth and tomatoes and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover with the lid and simmer 5 minutes.

Transfer onion mixture into a blender or Vitamix. Blend until smooth.

While onion mixture is pureeing, warm 1 more tbsp. of oil to the bottom of the Tagine. Add chicken cubes, turning to try and get some color if you want. Taste the sauce sauce and if you want more heat, sprinkle another ½ tsp. of Cayenne over chicken. Season with salt and pour sauce over chicken.  

Bring to a simmer then reduce heat to medium-low, cover Tagine with lid and simmer until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. If you want a sauce that is a bit thicker, remove the lid and turn the heat to low/simmer. Continue cooking gently for another 15-30 minutes or until the sauce is the consistency you like.

Stir in cream and cook for another 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro from your Veritable Garden and serve over basmati rice.
