Multi uses

You won’t stop using this ceramic tart dish for the presentation of a cake, or of all the dishes of round shape such as pizzas, quiches and pies, desserts, etc... It presents wonderfully your birthday cakes!

It’s made in enamelled white earthenware compatible with all types of ovens, and with the dishwasher. It is therefore a very useful piece of the Cavaillon tableware set, but you could also divert it for other uses, such as a permanent centerpiece on which you will place your bouquets of flowers in pots or vases. Why hide it in a closet?

Cavaillon set

The Cavaillon dinnerware sets with serving pieces includes the crockery used from breakfast to dinner. Thus, the dessert plates are available with the same decor if you want to purchase a cake set. Your guests will be won over!

This ceramic is suitable for everyday use as well as for equipping a country house. The rustic flowers on a yellow background give cosiness with an alternation of warm tones and greens. The appearance of the enamel is very textured while remaining shiny, attracting light.

You will also like the small touches of cream color that imitate the oats of the fields of Provence in summer.

Crafts of Vallauris

True artisanal pottery from Vallauris had its heyday in the 1960s with the installation of artists such as Picasso and Jean Marais. Rare nowadays, Art pottery then took precedence over the city’s ancestral craftsmanship.

Today, traditional potters can be counted on the fingers of one hand, unfortunately. We are proud to know Fabio, and to work with him exclusively on the collections of tableware and culinary pottery. Thanks to this collaboration, we maintain the tradition of Vallauris. It would be a shame to lose this treasure!

Manual


1 - Before first use (culinary terracotta only)

Before using your culinary pottery for the first time, we recommend to soak your pottery and its cover overnight in cold water and then to air dry thoroughly.

Then rub it with a clove of garlic and let stand for at least 5 hours.

Before use, clean it by hand, preferably with liquid Marseille soap or a diluted commercial detergent. Once dry, your terracotta pottery is ready to use.


2 - To avoid thermal shocks

Glazed terracotta and earthenware, like any ceramic, are materials sensitive to thermal shocks and can be damaged irreparably. Here are some tips to avoid breakage.

  • 1st tip: Not empty!
    Never heat or reheat a pottery utensil when it is empty. We recommend placing preparations or food inside, or at least a glass of water, before placing your dishes in the oven or on a cooking source.
  • 2nd tip: Cold start
    Whatever the heat source, you should always start your cooking in a cold oven, or on a small fire with a heat diffuser. Covered pottery retains heat and loses very little energy. You can heat up slowly. The earth gently cooks the stewed preparations, giving them back their water. These remain soft and tasty. There is no point in raising the temperature sharply. If you adhere to this principle, you can simmer unattended for a long time. Finally, do not use your pottery for quick cooking (roasting meat, for example). It is not appropriate. Prefer utensils made of iron, cast iron, etc, instead.
  • 3rd tip: Do not put on a cold surface after cooking
    Provide a tea towel, a cork or wooden trivet, and avoid placing it directly on a work surface. The temperature difference between very hot terracotta and a cold surface could create a shock causing cracking. Likewise, never pass from the oven to the refrigerator or vice versa. It would be fatal for your ceramic. Also, do not leave your terracotta or earthenware dish next to a cooking point. The proximity of a very hot temperature can crack the ceramic.

3 - How to clean your pottery

Even if you are using the dishwasher, you must handle your dishes avoiding any shocks. For hand cleaning, avoid metal pads and abrasive sponges. It is better to use natural detergents, such as Marseille soap products. Always rinse thoroughly, especially for utensils that have an unglazed part. You must allow your ceramic to dry completely before storing it. Place the lid separately, or staggered to prevent airtight closing while your dishes are resting. This will help prevent mold, as the terracotta retains moisture.


Thanks to these recommendations, you will rediscover the true flavor of your recipe in this natural earth, and the pleasure of sharing it at dinner.
