From the Andes of Columbia comes the unique, versatile and organic La Chamba cookware. Whether you are a gourmet chef or prefer simple fare, La Chamba will offer you years of cooking and serving pleasure. This traditional South American cookware has been used for food preparation, cooking and eating for centuries, and the origins can be traced back over 700 years to vases and pitchers found in archaeological sites.
La Chamba is made from coarse dark grey clay with a glazed terracotta finish. The surface is polished with semi-precious stones that give each piece its natural patina and each piece is traditionally moulded by hand to ensure its uniqueness. Slight variations in size and colour is typical of handcrafted product.
|Care||Safe to use on the stove, in the oven, in the microwave and under the grill. All pieces can be used over direct gas, on the barbeque and even on an open fire. Wooden utensils are recommended to prevent scratching.|
Prior to first use
La Chamba items should be thoroughly cleaned with mild detergent to remove any residue that may be present from the firing process. Each piece is then filled ¾ full with water and placed in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 30mins. This process allows La Chamba items to seal. A complete seal is sometimes achieved only after items have been used several times for cooking.
