SAME STRENGTH, MORE COLORS...
Nothing is as typical of Spanish cuisine as the terracotta pot. The cazuela, used in the kitchen and in the table, has been used for centuries throughout the peninsula in dishes of different origin, and even for desserts and drinks. It is ideal for legumes, soups, stews, rice dishes ... and even desserts such as Catalan cream.
Cazuela is a resistant utensil, although susceptible to sudden changes in temperature. That's why it's better to warm it up gradually. If you are going to cook in the oven, for example, let it heat up with the cazuela inside, instead of preheating. For the same reason it is recommended to let it cool completely before submerging it in cold water or to always use a trivet when we pass the pan of the fire to a cold surface.
