Why the Artisan Tandoor method of cooking is unique
тандыр (Russian) – Թոնիր (Armenian) – ਤੰਦੂਰ (Punjabi) – تنور (Arabic/Persian)
The Tandoor oven has been trusted by empires, cultures and dynasties for over 5,000 years to provide sustenance to their civilians, armies and royalty with succulent and aromatic meat, seafood and flat breads.
Our Artisan Tandoor ovens are handcrafted by skilled ceramicists and blacksmiths in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, alongside the Caspian sea.
Featuring 5-6cm thick Chamotte Ceramic walls in our ovens which are uniquely formed from organic material sourced within the Caucasus mountain ranges, producing a finished ceramic with high density of heat resistant silica and alumina. The ovens are crafted and styled with ancient accents by our Ceramicists before being reinforced with wrought iron by our skilled Blacksmiths.
The mineral rich organic materials used to form the oven add depth to the richness of flavour in meats, seafood and bread cooked inside.
The flavour increases with every use of the Artisan Tandoor oven due to the Ceramic oven walls retaining the flavour and aroma of prior and subsequent foods cooked inside. Your taste buds will be jolted to a new dimension every time!
Artisan Tandoors: Unique 3 in 1 properties
1. Radiant heating
The oven is fueled with wood or charcoal placed at the bottom which provides radiant heat throughout the cooking process.
2. Convection heating
The fuel source will heat the walls of the oven evenly up to the temperature of 1000°C.
Once the walls have heated, convection cooking process is now activated in the oven as the heat is evenly dispersed inside the oven.
With the lid of the oven closed, the fire source will provide smoking effect in addition to radiant and convection heating. The intensity and duration of smoking can be completely controlled.
4. Cooking perfection!
Your meat or seafood will now be able to cook to succulent perfection! The fire source will provide constant radiant heat and smoking effect while the oven walls will provide evenly heat dispersion through convection cooking.
The 3 methods in unison provide a completely unique culinary experience unmatched by any other cooking method!
