Small Round Oven dish - Root Vegetables
Small round oven dish perfect for a dessert, small pie or reheating leftover dinner. There's a bunch of healthy root vegetables in the picture, the inside is in dark warm grey, the outside of the dish is bright and orange.
It is approx 13cm in diameter 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 yo 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.
