When we discovered Pomaireware™ in 2007 we were completely intrigued. First, we all love love loved the pig tureen and serving spoon - for purely aesthetic reasons – but after learning more about this clay bakeware from Chile, we could feel a new cooking obsession coming on. Hence, our newest offering - an adorable three-legged pig shaped salsa or condiment dish.
It’s the perfect size for dips, or olives, or nuts. Really, the possibilities are endless. My favorite is to make smaller individual sized artichoke dips in this little guy…as you can bake in the oven and pull it out ready to serve.
Since the middle of the 19th century, Pomaire, Chile has been producing distinctive earth ware that is both functional and decorative.The artisans have preserved the tradition of working with clay using the same techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation.
Each piece is dried naturally, then smoothed and burnished with an agate stone before being fired. No glaze or varnish is used. Consequently, it has its own defects and discolorations that in no way affect the performance of each piece. That is why throughout Chile it is difficult to dine without something in a Pomaireware bowl or pot.
All Pomaireware items are lead-free, oven safe up to 450F, stove top safe (electric w/diffuser) and microwave safe.
And if you become obsessed like me, the side effects are only positive, I promise.
