If like me you’ve read Tartine Bread, but can’t find any shops nearby that sell the lovely cast iron double dutch oven combo cookers recommended, there is an alternative.
Or at least I thought there was…
Then before I’d finished writing this post I ran into a problem.
Our Emile Henry tagine is meant to be invincible to heat. The manufacturers claim you can move this straight from a freezer into a 500 degree oven without causing any damage.
But after a few weeks of (very successfully) baking bread every day ours has cracked.
Maybe this isn’t the cause of the problem, but I can’t think what else would do this after 5 years of use.
So moving on, I had a look at dutch oven combo cookers for sale online, but ended up ordering a La Cloche Baking Dome instead. It looks made for the job.
