    Throwing a dinner party, and my tagine (le cruset don’t you know. ) isn’t big enough…
    If I cook the meal in a casserole dish, can I still call it a tagine?!

    If I cook the meal

    There’s your problem. Chef’s night off?

    You can call it whatever you want if you cook it.

    Call yourself middle class and yet you only have one size of tagine?

    And it’s le creuset…

    yes However they will be too polite [ two faced] to mention it to your face but they will tell everyone what you did- thy will be disgusted with you.

    Call it a ‘Taggerol’?

    We’ve got our Moroccan Lamb dish ๐Ÿ˜‰ in the slow cooker tonight instead of the caserole dish (yes, a certain French make as t’other half is addicted to it). Can’t wait, bloody hungry!

    Call it a ‘Spiced Hot Pot’ and pretend you’re having a ‘Northern’ theme for the evening.

    You could entertain your guests by telling them about ‘back to back’ houses. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I cook tagine without a tagine dish all the time, never even thought of buying one. No ones called me up on it yet… Does this make me less middle class? Or maybe my friends are less middle class? Do you have a big enough pie dish to make pie? Surely they’re just as likely to call you up for making pie in a casserole dish as tagine?!

    Lucky for some. Mrs Removed is cooking a huuuuugely elaborate Ottolengi veggie special. It needs two hours cooking time and about 30 different ingredients.

    I’m sure there are many people who love Ottolenghi’s recipes, but it’s utterly wasted on me (carnivore). I’d honestly rather have a Maccy Dees ๐Ÿ™ I know, I’m a total ingrate.

    Yeah make a pie you can have mash or chips then not that horrible cous cous!

    The truth is this dish took 2 1/2 hours to cook too – started off in the tagine, then had to spoon it all out into the casserole dish!
    Cous cous, apricots and all!

    I don’t think my guests are ready for talk about ‘back to back houses’ just yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I got one of those Le Creuset Tagines. Too blimmin small to make anything worthwhile, but a very nice ornament.

    The Le Creuset wok, however, gets constant use.

    Why are you giving your guests cous cous, dont you like them ๐Ÿ˜†

    We have the Wok too – takes 6 people to lift it onto the hob!!!

    In reality, my favorite pans (frying) to use are my Tesco ‘finest’ frying pans – good heat distribution, light, quality non stick lining…
    Can I still contribute to this post now I’ve admitted to that??

    I love my Tesco Finest frying pan, but i’ve already admitted to making tagine in a casserole dish without a thought for my dinner guests so i’m not sure being in the same boat as me is a good thing here!

    Huh, the OP should think himself lucky (and lower middle class)

    I’m probably going to need some counselling now as my loose leaf oolong’s been tainted by being in close proximity to the uncorked basalmic vinaigrette dressing. Looks like I’ll need a bloody trip to Waitrose come the morning ๐Ÿ™

    I’m not sure but I think you just failed the middle class bit, it should be pseud’s post card.
