I got a tagine! Now what?

I've been wanting one of these for a while. Now what do I do with it? Dh is kind of picky, so a lot of Moroccan recipes are something he won't eat. Can I just make regular stews roasts and things in it?

I can't wait to try it out!

Oooh jealous!
From what I know of them, you can do nearly any stew recipe in it. I've also heard that whole chickens taste fantastic when made in a tagine.

What kind did you get?

Re: I got a tagine! Now what?

I got the Le Creuset one. I have a Le Creuset set of pots, so I wanted everything to match.

I've used it a few times. It's a bit of a learning curve. It doesn't hold much at all, so I have to rethink how I cook meals. I made a pretty good chicken over coucous last week, but I can't fit a whole roasting chicken in it. I'm going to try it with a cornish game hen next week. I always put too much water in it, so it boils over. It's mostly for roasting, and not for stews, apparently.

I can tell that once I get the kinks worked out it's going to rock. I'm researching Moroccan cuisine a lot, and trying to gather the spices I need for it, too. I'd never made couscous before but the kids LOVED it. And dh is really excited about trying it out because he really likes middle eastern food, so this is a great direction for us. I'm completely revamping the kitchen, so this is really exciting for me.

If it is a Le Creuset then it came with a little book of recipes. I have yet to make a bad one from it.
