Moroccan Lamb Tagine

Rob's sister Sarah brought this brilliant Tagine Dish for us back from Morocco.
I tried it out at the weekend and made a Lamb and vegetable Tagine. The falvours were soooo tasty.
A Tagine Dish is a shallow, round earthenware glazed pot with a tall, conical lid like a chinese coolie's hat, that traps the steam rising from the stew cooked in the bottom and prevents the stew drying out during the lengthy cooking time.
