Small Oval Oven Dish - Fish Dish
This small oval oven dish with handles is perfect for a cooking fish or fruit crumble.
The fierce little fish is swimming at the bottom of the dish, coloured in soft green and contrasting orange details.
It is approx 20 x 11cm in widest points and 4 cm deep.
Oven dishes are made of clay that is very resilient. They are sturdy and beautifully decorated, and the glaze on them has a lovely crackle effect.
We only ever make very small batches of these. Each piece is decorated with a unique design that is a combination of hand-cut paper stencils, scraffitto, relief and free-hand decoration.
USE and CARE
The tart dishes (also known as flan dishes) are oven proof and can be used for actual cooking. They are also dishwasher and microwave safe. The only thing they don't appreciate is a sudden temperature change, make sure you do not put a cold dish into a very hot oven or rinse hot dish in cold water- temperature shock may break them.
Because the glaze is crackled, food cooked in them may stain the crackle lines with time. It is advised to line the dishes with baking paper of foil, especially if you're cooking dark coloured foods like beetroot, aubergines etc, using spices that stain, or roast meat or fish that produces lots of juices.
Some of you like to use these as wall pieces. If you have that use the dish in mind, let us know and we will fix a hook at the back of it, make it ready for hanging.
Tart dishes are available exclusively from our online and brick-and-mortar shop in Harold's Cross, Dublin.
