Bowls That Keep Soup Boiling Hot

Ah good point (I am a chemist) But we were at sea level in Puerto Natales. I just ordered some Colombian La Chamba ceramic bowels for use on stovetop.

what kind of bowel did this?

The photo is at the tiny corner restaurant, El Toqui, in Puerto Natales, Chile. A few blocks uphill from city center.The woman was a fabulous cook but said her business was down this year and a good TripAdvisor review might help. Vegan options in Patagonian meat country are hard to come by and she had several.judy

Thanks for letting me know. Author even corrected my spelling error for me.

On the left is my son Adam Cronkright and in the forefront is my husband Peter Cronkright.

I'd love to name the restaurant, but it's on a slip of paper still with my son as he hitchhikes around S. America. I'll post it if I can get from him.

After looking at all the option, I'm thinking your suggeston is the closest I'll come. They have the right characteristics, come from Colombia, and similar appearance (I posted a picture on here later.) I found another site that shows their whole line and there are some bowels that are a suitable size. I plan to order 4 and try them out...they take 4-6 weeks for delivery....must come via llama. Thanks very much for taking the time to respond to my question. judy

Now that I've seen the whole La Chamba line, and learn it comes from Columbia....I think that might be what I should try. Thanks for all the suggestions. Judy

Glad my misspelling gave everyone a good laugh. But I probably got more reads as a result. I'll try to upload a photo of the bowls. The Ceramcor Xtrema suggested by Thimes below might have the same properties. It was not the La Chamba. I do appreciate everyone's help. judy

Just returned from trekking trip to Patagonia. In Puerto Natales, Chile, at a phenomenal tiny place that had a few vegetarian options, we were served soups that came out of the kitchen to our table vigorously boiling and continue to boil in the serving bowels for a full 1-2 minutes. It was incredible. The bowels were basic dark brown, held about 4-5 cups, and were about 1/2-3/4 inch thick...look like dark wood, but felt like ceramic. Despite boiling, the top rims could be safely touched, but the lower area was too hot and so they were delivered to the table on serving plates. We asked the cook but our spanish was rough. Best as we figured, these were ceramic. We think she said once the soup was made, she ladled it into the serving bowel, and heated it again directly on the flames to a boil, then walked it out to customers. Has anyone seen this? I'd love to find a few such bowels. Thanks. Judy.
