Cataplana Shop

The Cataplana is just an ordinary copper or aluminum pot with a very tight-fitting lid and two handles. Especially on the Portuguese coast the Cataplana was a long time the main cookware and is still used today. In particular, for gentle cooking / steaming of fish and shellfish dishes.
The word Cataplana is sometimes used for a typical stew of pork or clams, which was prepared in such a pot. Today the Cataplana is a typical souvenir from Portugal - popular with tourists.
