Tagine is the national food of our mystery country. The name refers both to the clay pot and the dish cooked inside it. The pot consists of a round base with low sides and a conical top. During cooking, condensation is trapped in the conical top and flows back into the base to stew the ingredients there. Cooking can be done over coals, in an oven or on the stove top; the key is low heat for long, slow cooking. There are countless recipes for Tagine, which is really more about the pot and slow-cook method than the ingredients. The Tagine pot acts as a serving dish, as well as a cooker, and traditionally all diners would eat right out of the one dish, using bread to scoop their bites rather than utensils.
