Serving dishes from La Chamba are traditionally crafted by people in the village of La Chamba, Colombia using local clay that is stone-smoothed by hand and fired on-site. These handmade serving dishes, including our salt dish, salsa dish, pasta bowl, and drink pitcher, are practical enough for everyday use, yet sophisticated enough for special occasions. In addition, every unique serving dish is suitable not just for serving, but preparing food as well; these versatile serving dishes can be used in the oven, over flame, or even to heat leftovers in the microwave.
Our Chamba triple dish is the perfect serving dish for salsas, dips, condiments, or small appetizers to your party guests, and the black clay salad bowl beautifully presents fresh greens. Each serving dish makes for a stunning presentation with its dramatic, deep color. The functionality of these traditional serving bowls makes them a must-have for holiday parties and special events.
In addition, these serving dishes are non-glazed and lead-free, making them the safe choice for any conscientious cook. Plus you don't need to worry about clean up; these non-toxic serving dishes simply need a quick soak and wipe down with a sponge or cloth before they're ready to use again. And if you're looking to build a La Chamba dinnerware set, there’s no better way to start than with the practical pasta dish or square dish. Or if you need a unique gift idea for your favorite environmentally conscientious home chef, the hen salsa dish with spoon or double dish make a wonderful present.
