The properties of the earth are infinite! It is important, in a modern and functional kitchen , to have containers and cooking dishes that give us pleasure to use them, that we are proud to bring to the table. It is important to have a use for each object, but that it is as aesthetic , that it seduces us ! For cooking objects, which go into the oven and go on all fires, Christine has chosen the refractory earth , a clay- based pottery that bakes and withstands very high temperatures . It is thanks to its purity and the know-how of the potter in the development of each piece, that the refractory earth acquires its optimal cooking properties of food. One is sometimes disappointed by cooking a dish in sauce which ends up sticking to dry out: the refractory land avoids these pitfalls by keeping the softness and smoothness of the simmered dishes, with in addition the user-friendliness of a dish which keeps warm the food and pleases guests with its beauty. Try the casseroles, casseroles, tajines and dishes of all shapes ... Adapt them to the color of your kitchen! There is something for everyone!
