This unique, versatile traditional South American cookware has been used for food preparation, cooking and eating for centuries, and the origins can be traced back over 700 years to vases and pitchers found in archaeological sites. It is still made in the traditional manner, by families in the village of La Chamba, on the banks of the Magdalena River in Central Colombia. Each piece is hand-crafted using local clays, burnished by hand and fired on-site. The painstaking process and natural materials give the dishes an authentic, distinctive and elegant look
Safe to use on the stove, in the oven, in the microwave and under the grill. All pieces can be used over direct gas, on the barbecue and even on an open fire. Dishwasher safe.
La Chamba is moulded by hand from coarse dark grey clay. There are no toxins used in the production of La Chamba dishes. The pieces are not glazed and there is no lead found in the clay. The black color comes from the firing process and the smooth finish of the pieces is the result of hand-burnishing with stones.
