I enjoy cooking. I love trying new recipes and making them from scratch. It’s how I show my family I love them. Several years ago, I discovered cooking with clay cookware, never looking back. My new favorite is the Reco Romertopf Clay Cookware.
If you’ve never used clay cookware, I’m encouraging you to try it.
My love affair began with Charlotte the Great told me that the best way to raise bread dough is in a clay pot. I bought one, thinking it would solve all the problems I was having with the long passed generation bread recipe. I struggled–more from using the mixer versus adding the flour by hand, but my dough was far more light. Using an unglazed clay bowl allows the water in the dough to evaporate during the rising process, yielding fantastic bread! Then I baked a loaf of bread in clay cookware, and the crust was crisp, the inside moist.
Naturally, my thought came to be, “What else can I do with this clay cookware?”
Clay cookware is porous, and when saturated with water and heated in the oven, there is slow evaporation of steam through the clay’s pores. The moist, enclosed environment yields increased flavor and tender meats. Clay cookware requires less liquid, little pot-watching, and less fat, making it convenient and healthier!
The more I use clay cookware, the more I discover. There are ridges on the bottom of clay cookers. This elevates the cookware allowing steam to encircle the food and browning meat. My oven remains clean when I cook with clay cookware. Food remains warm long after removing my meal but doesn’t continue to cook.

Soak Clay Pot for at least 20 minutes. I soak the cookware while I’m cutting the herbs and vegetables and tending to the chicken. Soaking the pot is crucial to your success.
