A handmade production

This earthen daubiere is modeled, cooked, dried and decorated in Vallauris by one of the last potters of Vallauris. The well-known city of ceramics was a place where Picasso loved to make artistic potteries. The whole manufacturing process is done by hand following the ancestral gestures of the potters of yesteryear. It has a very particular shape that requires dexterity and control.
The pottery is first turned and modeled in the clay, then it dries before a first oven cooking to turn solid. Then it is glazed with a brown enamel on the inside and the top of the pot, including the neck, to make it waterproof and prevent water loss. Finally, it’s annealed at around 1000 ° C to fix the finish. It’s a long process that requires patience, especially when the weather comes to hinder the work of the potter: indeed, the drying time depends on the ambient humidity. But if it’s too dry, the pottery is then more brittle and difficult to handle. In other words, the weather plays a very important role in the manufacture of ceramics.

Provencal cooking pot

This is a traditional terracotta container in Provence, antique french cookware used for a long time to cook the famous Provencal daube of which we give you the recipe below. Its shape is designed to contain pieces of meat and vegetables for a stew. The daubiere is wide at its base, like a small casserole, then narrows at the neck to maintain the moist heat of vegetable water. A pierced rim lid is used to collect the marinade to add to the preparation automatically.

Recipe of Provencal daube

Several versions of Provencal stew come from different parts of Provence: there is the daube of Avignon, the daube of Nice and the comtadine daube. Each has variants, but the basic recipe remains the same, and always delicious. Check out our family recipe of the daube on our blog and give your opinion!

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.

Well worth it!

First let's address the shipping for those who are concerned about getting it here in one piece. Who wouldn't? The Daubiere was packed very well and got here in one piece, so no worries there. The great craftsmanship is obvious and it is as beautiful as you might expect. You will not find this in the US so probably best to get it here and the price is reasonable for what you get in my opinion. You will not be dissapointed. Since the information for how to cook with it is scarce, I would love for more information on prepping the piece before it's first use and instructions on use. There is enough information to get you started but not quite enough to make you feel 100% confident on how to use it properly? I did contact Remember Provence to get some advice and they responded right away with helpful tips, website and a few other possible sources of "use" information, which I appreciated. I am 100% happy with this Daubiere and paln on cooking with it today.

The Daubiere arrived in excellent condition, somewhat late due to the world crisis at the moment.

Just having cooked our first meal in it tonight with excellent feedback from the diners, I am sure that we will continue to use the Daubiere more often.

Answer:

Do not forget to use the Daubiere according to the instructions (no thermal shock) and it will serve you for a long time!

Arrived quickly, looks and works great

The daubiere pot arrived quickly and safely. I've used it twice so far and it works beautifully. It wasn't obvious to me whether it was meant to be on the stove top or in the oven. After some internet research, I've used it on a gas stove top with a heat diffuser. After five hours on the lowest possible flame the food temperatures were at a perfect 185 degrees. If you're considering buying one, don't be put off by the soaking and garlic rubbing, they're easy to do. I was also a little concerned that the mouth opening would be too small, but it's more than large enough to allow for easy scooping out and reaching in to wash with plain water. It's a beautiful pot that I enjoy seeing every time I walk in the kitchen. The daub recipe offered on the website was delicious.

Answer:

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience! Hope you'll enjoy the daubiere for a lifetime.

Finally found a real Daubiere!

...and it was worth the wait. Absolutely beautiful. I soaked it over night and rubbed it inside and out with garlic... and this weekend made the most succulent Beef Bourgignon I've ever had. I'm amazed at what this pot does for this dish. I'm now searching the internet for a whole new world of slow cook recipes.

Answer:

We will send you some Provencal ones. Meanwhile, you can get chef François de Melogue's cooking books. His French recipes are simple, traditional, delicious and written in English.

I love my daubiere!

I am the happy new owner of a daubière from Vallauris France thanks to Marie-Helene and Remember Provence. It was made upon order, and Marie-Helene was wonderful about keeping me "in the loop" through its production. It arrived in perfect shape along with careful instructions as to how to prepare it for its first use. I followed the instructions, made my first Daube, and am absolutely delighted with the results. Thanks so much "Remember Provence"!

Answer:

And thanks to the potter overall... Congratulations to the cook! We wish you will make many many delicious daubes during a lifetime in the daubiere...

Bonjour,
Peut on utiliser la daubiere sur des plaques électriques ou à gaz, et peut on mettre de l'eau dans le couvercle
si nous faisons la daube sans marinade ????
Merci

Bonjour Sandrine,
Oui, il est tout à fait possible de l'utiliser sur des plaques de cuisson quel que soit le revêtement pourvu que le fond de la poterie soit protégée de la chaleur directe. Nous recommandons de placer sous la daubière un diffuseur - mijoteur si vous en avez un, ou une simple poêle qui servira d'écran. Toujours démarrer à petit feu, puis augmenter progressivement pour éviter les chocs thermiques.
D'autre part, vous pouvez mettre de l'eau dans le couvercle , qui aura pour effet de réhydrater votre préparation automatiquement.
