The Appetizing Moroccan Meal Tajine

Like Paella or casserole, the word tajine strictly refers to a vessel rather than to the food cooked in it. A tagine is a heavy ceramic plate covered with a conical lid of the same material. The prettiest tajines, decorated in all tajines for actual use are plain reddish-brown in color, and come from Salé. The Appetizing Moroccan Meal Tajine, the food in a tajine is arranged with the meat in the middle and the vegetables piled up around it. Then the lid is put on , and the tajine is left to cook slowly over low light, or better still, over a charcoal stove ( kanoun ), usually one made spices. Chicken is traditionally cooked in a tajine with green olives and lemons preserved  in brine.  Lamb or beef are often cooked with prunes and almonds. When eating a tajine, you start on the outside with the vegetables, and work your way to the meat at the heart of the dish, scooping up the food with bread.
