Truely wonderful pictures and comentary. I especially loved the haw mawk with mushrooms and pork.

RST

Do you have the name of those gorgeous clay "curry pots" (the ones that look like tagines)? I want one!!!!

Robyn

Thanks Roger. I loved them too. ;-)

RST - will find out and get back to you. Don't think you can cook in them, just for serving.

The clay pots are called Moe Din. (The Moe part is pronounced like the word More without the letter R.)

You can cooked in Moe Din, actually, though most people prefer to use the far less fragile and more convenient Aluminum pots. The clay pot imparts a certain taste on food. You can taste it quite a bit in milder tasting rice, though not as much in curries.

cheers,
Pim

Thanks Pim! Do you happen to know the source of the clay? Or which town/s is/are famous for this type pf pottery? I was in Oaxaca in Feb: comales and ollas from diff villages (Atzompa, San Marcos Tlapazola and son on) are generally known for different properties (one village known for comales that are thinner and easier to heat and so on).

I have got to have one of those beauties! Is it too much to call it a "Muslim" form?

Was just in Chiang Mai for the Sunday Market and I am desperate to find one of the cast iron fish shaped waffle makers one of the street vendors had. Do you have any information on these delightful pans?
