We learnt from many grand mothers that the most sought after and frequently used cookware is the one made of soapstone, called Kal Chatti. Their memories of the most authentic tamarind based gravies and spinach are all made in this cookware. With this knowledge, we initiated our journey in search of the authentic artisans who made these cookware since time immemorial. Our Journey took us to rural Tamil Nadu where the cluster is still active and make some of the best soapstone cookware. Identifying the right kind of stone to make the cookware is an art and chiseling out a perfect vessel out of a block of soapstone is even more mesmerising. Zishta brings you our range of authentic soapstone cookware from the same artisans who provided these invaluable cookware and made our food unforgettable.
