The tagine is a funnel-shaped top on a saucer-like bottom.  It's used in Morocco, and is supposed to make a great meal!   Must come out like a stew.  Does anyone have recipes for the tagine?  Any recommendations for which kind of tagine to use?  Clay, pottery?  Everyone on ebay suggests Le Creuset, but at $129-$149, it's a bit steep for me!

I don't own a tagine, but have made a fish tangine that I found on epicurious.com - I can't find the exact recipe there now, but there are others there.  I loved it - and found I used even more spices than what was called for just to make it more tasty.

Thanks, Suzanne--that's a great tip!  I'm looking for a tagine--it's my yard sale goal for the summer! Marian

Marian, I see them from time to time at TJ Maxx - if I see another one, I may snag it and if you don't want it, I'll keep it.  I have wanted one for a long time too. :)

Odd - was just looking at these in the Williams-Sanoma catalog very pricy but am looking around for a less expensive one - think it would make a marvelous Christmas gift for daughter who has just about everything else in her kitchen
