Hi, I have written about the many types of uses for Piral, terracotta cookware in this blog. Below is a video of a delicious Grass Fed Braised Beef with leeks and mushrooms and Risotto. Terracotta Cookware from Terra Allegra Imports is superb for braising and rice dishes. Try them you will love using the light weight and Easy Clean “Cookware Of The Earth, For The Earth”.
