I just read your interesting short article "The Clay Pot Collector" in the latest issue of Food and Wine. That Cypriot bread and Lamb and Prune stew are on my to-do list.
which one of these pots has the most cherished memory associated with it and why?
How do you take care of the clay pots that you do use? Are they to be seasoned or are they just washed and dried?
Unfortunatly, I do not have a clay pot to bake the above bread in. Can I use a glassware baking dish? or am I better off just baking on a stone?
Thanks for sharing,

Sure, you can bake the bread anyway you wish, but baking bread in a Romertopf will be a revelation...unless, of course, you already have a HearthKit or baker's oven at home.
As for each pot telling a story,..the stories behind the two recipes you mention are too long to tell here. But the story of the pot I cooked it in is in the piece -- it's the pot fromthe alleys of Marrakech.
