Named for its place of origin, La Chamba clay cookware from Colombia is crafted completely by hand using centuries-old methods. Made from local river clay, the stunning matte-black surface of this salsa dish looks similar to cast iron but is much more lightweight and easier to handle. It also adds a beautiful authentic accent to your table. The handcrafted lid is perfect for keeping your condiments covered until the moment you need them, especially when cooking outdoors—we love the look of La Chamba as part of an outdoor barbecue spread. Use it to serve our Colombian Avocado Salsa
(Áji de Aguacate) or our Green Chili and Tomatillo Hot Sauce
Making La Chamba cookware is quite literally a community effort, and every piece passes through the hands of various skilled artisans in one village in Colombia. The three types of clay used in the dishes’ construction make them strong enough to use in the oven, microwave or on your stove—but as with all clay cookware, La Chamba pieces should not be exposed to extreme temperature shock.
