A healthy kitchen

The clay retains heat & moisture enabling a slow, balanced cooking process. Because the clay absorbs fluids, there is less harsh steam in the pot, so the food is able to cook in its own juices and not dry out.

The moist enclosed in the pot results in food that is healthier, tastier & moist - requiring less fat & liquids.

Place the cabbage on a cutting board and spread the leaves away from the centre. Place a small batch of stuffing in the middle and close the first 3 leaves. Slide the stuffing between each leaf. Once the stuffing is placed between the leaves, fold the leaves back in their original shape and tie a string around the cabbage.


In a large La Chamba casserole, arrange leeks, carrots sliced lengthwise and peeled potatoes around the cabbage. Add broth to the bottom and season to taste.


Cook over low heat on the stove or in the oven for 1 1/2 hours. Serve with mustard.
Opt for an extra large cabbage because you'll want leftovers!
