"Most food~and Mediterranean food in particular~tastes better cooked in clay. Think of the difference in taste between organically grown fruits and vegetables and typical supermarket agribusiness produce. The former always tastes better. Similarly, unglazed clay vessels are also organic, since clay is a form of earth. Food cooked in them acquires a natural taste. When I taste heirloom beans cooked in a clay pot on top of the stove, I find a special sweetness in them. Just as food cooked in a wood-fired oven acquires the taste and aroma of wood, so food cooked in an unglazed clay pot acquires the taste and aroma of the earth." Paula Wolfert
